Engaging Senior Leaders in Learning (…so that they make your life easier!)


Engaging Senior Leaders in Learning (…so that they make your life easier!)

Wednesday 3 May 2023
Seminar Theatre 1
AI, data, analytics and impact , Programme implementation

Have you ever thought your job would be much easier If only managers and senior leaders would get behind L&D programmes? In this session, Hayley Barnard will explain how Lidl engaged their Board and senior leaders to drive greater engagement in their Diversity, Equity and inclusion company-wide learning. Lidl trained everyone from the CEO to the shop floor in DE&I using a tailored approach from Board Briefings to e-learning. You’ll see how teaching the same tools to the CEO as those on the shop floor created common language to drive culture change.

  • How to influence the influencers
  • Stroking egos and clarifying ‘what’s in it for me’
  • Engaging leaders in topics they may not care about
  • How to collect and use real employee stories to engage leaders
  • Use of expert led bite-sized videos
  • Chunking learning
  • Creating and socialising ‘sticky tools’ that create common language and drive culture change.
  • Measuring the impact on leaders

What happens next? Self-directed learning for leaders.
