Registration is closed

This event aligns with the Personal, Professional and Organizational Application of ATD's Talent Development Capability Model.

Leaders need to pivot quickly to attend to the 'whole person' in a hybrid world. This requires deeply self-aware and resilient leaders of learning--able to navigate paradox, uncertainty, and an expanding market of untested tools to keep learners engaged. Not all organizations and programs had been selecting and investing in these capabilities prior to the rise of COVID. We will focus on how learning leaders can act now to position themselves and their organizations for the future, discussing such topics as inequalities between in-person and remote workers, biases, unique leadership capabilities to develop, and the leaders' responsibility for employee mental health. Bring your questions and your insights on how we can prepare leaders to lead the whole person in a hybrid world.
