[D] Leadership Development – Human Connection through Technology – Britney Cole

Organizations have historically been challenged to find a way to provide their managers with essential leadership skills in a way that is innovative, accessible, scalable, and relevant. With the explosion of learning technologies, opportunities abound to reach new generations of leaders with an incredible range of digitally enabled options. There is no scarcity of the micro-enabled ways leaders can learn how to improve their interpersonal leadership skills. Except here is the problem—leader-learners need to keep the person in “interpersonal.” We are wired as human beings to connect and learn through others, and an approach that eliminates this connection eliminates the most powerful aspect of leadership development. However, there are ways to reach across the technology and support human connection. Join us for an engaging webinar where Britney Cole, Director of Innovation at GP Strategies, shares a thoughtful approach that’s not only learner-centric and leader-centric—it’s human-centric. During this webcast, you will learn how leaders can embrace the convenience of digital learning while not losing sight of the human factor, and gain insights to help you: – Understand the foundational components of an impactful frontline leader journey. – Effectively blend a leader’s development journey that meets the demands of today’s digital world. – Ensure you keep human connection alive. There is a way to have the best of both worlds.
