Webinar: Breaking the rules – the future of leadership development - Henley Business School Finland

Webinar: Breaking the rules – the future of leadership development

25 years ago, leadership learning was so much simpler. We used to lock large cohorts of eager-to-learn participants into tiered lecture theatres, often in the basements of our business schools. There was little or no natural light and no possibility of interaction with anyone other than the clever professor at the front of the room. After three weeks, our participants would emerge, blinking into the sunshine, and we would send them back to their organisations, confident that some of the professorial brilliance would make its way into their leadership lives…

In the last 20 years, we have worked hard to design leadership learning that delivers both intellectual and emotional impact. The innovation in experiential learning, coaching, immersion, action learning, virtual learning amongst all sorts of other creative methodologies has all led to a more sophisticated and human-centric approach. As a result, participants now leave their learning journeys prepared to experiment with new ways of thinking, leading and doing.

For a while, this all worked very well. Then, two things happened. First, the digital society has had a far-ranging impact on leadership populations around the world. Then, the pandemic hit.

Join Jon Morton, Executive Fellow, and Claire Hewitt, Head of Learning Design, for a 60-minute interactive conversation to look at how we can, have and will continue to innovate learning to address the leadership challenges catalysed by a digital society and the pandemic.

They’ll explore issues such as building diverse leadership communities – and what diversity really means. They’ll talk about the benefits of non-hierarchical leadership cohorts and the value they bring. And they’ll discuss how to build trust in the virtual learning environment and how to set up learning experiments. Jon and Claire will also share what we have learned, how we have experimented, what rules we have broken, what has gone well, and what was not so successful.

During this webinar, you’ll get an entirely new look at the future of learning by breaking the learning rules. You’ll understand how to deliver the right intellectual, emotional and physical impact when providing leadership development for your organisation.

If you can’t make it, please sign up, and we’ll send you the recording.
