For a leadership development program to succeed, leaders first need to admit that their knowledge is imperfect
Professional development tends to be something that is often neglected at the top, a leadership and people management specialist has previously told HRD. And that void in development can trickle down to the rest of the organisation.
So it is the HR Director or L&D professional’s role to prepare leaders to accept leadership development training.
At the upcoming Learning & Development Masterclass in Sydney, MetLife Director, Leadership, Learning & Talent Alexandra Sosnov will explore some ways that HR can influence leaders to admitting that their knowledge is imperfect and adopt a learning mindset.
This session will discuss ways to:
- Overcome skepticism and cynicism about the development process
- Encourage learners to be honest about their leadership abilities
- Teach values such as integrity, morality and empathy to leaders
- Build personal resilience in leaders
