Work can be a whirlwind. You’re constantly moving from one thing to the next. And that’s particularly true in L&D, where there never seems to be a chance to stop, breathe and reflect on what’s happening , and plan your next steps. This session gives you that chance – and a particular approach (connect, reflect, build) that you can use today, and carry with into your work to allow you, and others, to build intention into your work and career.

L&D – Equipped and Ready!

With businesses, teams and individuals facing a barrage of constant change in the new world of work, the role of L&D has never felt more strategic. It’s also never felt more daunting. We have been invited to contribute to business critical agenda of talent , ensuring that others are equipped and ready. And yet our workloads are increasing exponentially and we regularly feel overwhelmed and under equipped. Each year we are presented with innovative technologies, alternative models and new techniques to help us deliver even more value with fewer resources.

We are drowning in opportunity and it’s time for lifeline!

In this session we will be focussing on YOU and what YOU need to be equipped and ready to shape the future of L&D. This interactive session will create the opportunity to stop, reflect and plan together as we explore how to navigate:

  1. The gritty reality of working with people
  2. The constant novelty of technology
  3. How we prioritise our own skills
  4. Ways of winning the inner game of L&D
  5. Making smart BOLD choices
