In addition to facing the global pandemic, spiking inflation, and near-recession, today’s leaders must deal with trends such as the “Great Resignation,” “Quiet Quitting,” and “Bare Minimum Mondays.” Likewise, they must figure out how to handle the dramatic changes that likely will result from emerging technologies such artificial intelligence-based tools. All this while piloting their employees and organizations toward optimum performance. 

But they can’t do it alone—and that’s where Learning and Development (L&D) comes in. For the seventh year, Training magazine and Wilson Learning Worldwide teamed up to conduct the Annual Leadership Survey, which focuses on what organizations are doing to develop effective leaders in these constantly changing times. In this year’s survey, we saw some tremendous swings in needs and expectations and a clear indication that L&D, as an industry, is exploring new avenues and methods of effectively delivering leadership development training.

Join Lorri Freifeld, Editor/Publisher of Training magazine, and Dr. Michael Leimbach, VP of Global Research and Development for Wilson Learning, for this webinar, which will explore:

•    The current state of leadership development (including levels of investment, priority skills, generational shifts, and learning methods)
•    How the hybrid work environment is affecting leadership development
•    Best practices and tips from high-performing companies to reinvent leadership development amidst continued turbulent times and technological transformation

You’ll come away with a roadmap to achieve a greater return on your leadership development investments as you help your leaders successfully guide their teams, employees, and organizations boldly and inclusively into the future.
