Today's turbulent and complex business environment poses unique and demanding challenges for leaders at all levels. Many lead in an environment of both abundance and scarcity, where the work is abundant (emails, meetings, project, etc.) and time is scarce. This is the leadership development conundrum of our time. Leaders believe they must choose between getting work done, as more and more gets put on their plate, or developing themselves and their team. This is a false choice.
In this Keynote Video, Taavo Godtfredsen, Vice President and Executive Producer at Skillsoft, and Anthony Griswold, Head of Leadership Development at Xerox Corporation, discuss an innovative approach to leadership development, which addresses how to accelerate development and effectiveness when leaders’ bandwidth to grow themselves and others is limited.
Key insights include:
- A discussion of how organizations can do a better job of creating “white space” and guiding employees’ use of it for innovation and growth.
- The latest research on the leadership mindsets most prevalent today and the ones most needed for tomorrow.
- How most organizations spend too much time and money on immersive learning events at the expense of pre-work and follow-up activities where the potential for impact is much greater.
- A discussion of the “drip method” of learning and how Xerox is using it to enable leaders to regularly learn and reflect on developing themselves and their people on an ongoing basis.
