The accelerated rate of change we are experiencing will not disappear with the subsidence of Covid-19 – this is the new normal. How can leaders build the capacities they need to engage with this rapidly evolving landscape? In this episode of Learning Rewired, Alan Watkins – neuroscientist, international leadership expert, bestselling author and Founder and CEO of Complete – argues that L&D functions within organisations need to move beyond L (learning) and focus on D (development).

In this interview:

  • How we avoid development by getting locked into ‘aboutism’
  • The critical difference between horizontal and vertical development
  • The profound and far-reaching need for HR leaders and the organisations they serve to take development seriously
