What Is Learning Leadership? (Panel Discussion)

The workplace is in a period of transition. The future of work was already rapidly evolving based on numerous forces of change; the addition of the pandemic to the equation only makes things more complex. The role of learning professionals to be leaders is more important than ever as we support individuals and organizations through these changes. But what exactly does it mean to be a learning leader?

In this opening session for Learning 2020 Online, we will explore what “Learning Leadership” means in a modern learning organization. We will look beyond learning leadership as an idea and examine what it looks like as a practice, targeting specific skills and behaviors that can be built and nurtured. We will explore not only the knowledge and skills you need as a learning leader today, but what you need to develop in order to prepare yourself and your teams for the challenges still to come.

In this session, you will learn:

  • What “learning leadership” means in 2020
  • The types of skills today’s learning leaders need to develop
  • The role learning leaders need to play in supporting organizations through the challenging times ahead
