What happens if you act with your employee as you would with your child? Leadership styles that develop people.
May 22 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
Developing people is key to accentuate the companies agility in an ever changing market. With a clear lack of supply of human resources in many different industries, many companies choose to respond by employing people without the necessary qualifications and then invest in high impact development training to provide the necessary competences to the individuals. Training and continuous professional development are other important features that help a company improve their competence base. However, as any parent would know developing people is tricky business. The process of learning is not always smooth, and it can also include moments of failure, defiance and rebellion. These are not alien within workplace learning and this talk aims to highlight the parallel. However, the level of investment by a parent to see their child succeed is different from that of an employer. Employers are generally less tolerant of mistakes and the clear disparity of power in favour of the employer generally creates an atmosphere of fear, rather than security (a central requisite for effective learning).
