Our 2019 research, Digital Disruption: Exploring the Implications for Leaders and Leadership Development, examined the leadership capabilities required for success in the digital age and the implications for leadership development. In this interactive webinar, attendees will work collaboratively, prompted by the latest thinking in leadership development from IMD faculty, case studies and facilitated discussion among participants.
Attendees will have the opportunity to:
- Compare experiences around the critical leadership challenges faced by their organisations and share how they are tackling them.
- Gain deeper insights into the principles of effective leadership development and consider how these might be implemented within their organisations.
- Discuss how to evaluate the impact and effectiveness of leadership development and how to apply these ideas in practice.
- Collaborate with peers in co-creating solutions to leadership challenges in their organisations.
Who is it For?
This masterclass is aimed at those with responsibility for the strategy, design, delivery and evaluation of leadership development initiatives within their organisation who are willing to share experiences in an expert led, collaborative environment.
