Exploring New Ways Forward in Leadership Development
On October 20, AmCham’s HR executives, in partnership with Headspring Executive Development, held a roundtable session with thought leader Nick Van Dam, former McKinsey Global Chief Learning Officer to discuss how Covid-19 has changed the landscape surrounding leadership development.
Dr. Van Dam shared his recent research of Global Chief Learning Officers that shows a deep transformation in the way they deliver development programs. There is a massive need for reskilling and upskilling, due to automation and more recently COVID. Lifelong learning and continuous development proves difficult in a negative environment, and therefore it is critical for organizations to focus on the engagement and wellbeing of their employees in order to continue to develop the workforce.
