How can you build the skills of managers so they can better support and sustain the development of their direct reports?
How can you gain buy-in and involve them to help model and reinforce skills to boost “stickiness” and application?
While Mark will share best practices and case studies, attendees will collaborate using several of DDI’s innovation practices to explore solutions.
How often have you heard: “I wish my boss would take this training!” Most first-time leaders lack formal leadership experience and are often left to sink or swim without strong role models or much help from their direct boss.
Ask any learning & development professional and they can clearly articulate the importance of the role of the manager of the learner. However, ask those same professionals how they get the managers’ involvement to support and reinforce development, and there are often tales of unsuccessful attempts to engage them. Watch this thought-provoking session as Mark Phelps involves all attendees in examining this development challenge through an innovation lens, and casts a spotlight on the critical role of managers in the success of leadership development initiatives.
