#14 Moving Beyond Learning Towards Development
The accelerated rate of change we are experiencing will not disappear with the subsidence of Covid-19 – this is the new normal.
In this episode, Dr. Alan Watkins joins us to discuss how can leaders build the capacities they need to engage with this rapidly evolving landscape, and that L&D functions within organisations need to move beyond L (learning) and focus on D (development). In this interview, Dr. Alan shares his views and expertise in L&D topics such as:
- 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
