Ignore Frontline Leaders at Your Peril
31 January, 2019 | 11:00-12:00 GMT
Presented by: Katy Freeman, Verity Creedy & Andrew McNeill
Is developing your frontline leaders your number one priority? If not, then it should be, because it is for 57% of C-suite executives in Europe, compared to 30% of those concerned around the impacts of Brexit and global political uncertainty*.
Organisations regularly promote technical experts into leadership roles, but they forget to train them on the key skills required to be successful at the frontline. 80% of your employee population is led by these people. They need to engage and inspire their teams; they need to coach, set goals, drive change and conduct difficult conversations.
What you will walk away with:
- Data around key challenges current frontline leaders face in their day-to-day jobs and as emerging talent transitions into the role of a leader.
- The core leadership skills and capabilities that can be transferred and applied to multiple situations and challenges.
- Learn from others: Andrew McNeill, Learning and Development Manager at Fugro, will join us to share Fugro’s learnings and impressive results from implementing an award-winning dedicated frontline leader programme with DDI.
- How DDI can support you in creating a relevant and personalised leadership development programme leveraging blended learning approaches.
