Webinar: Myths We Must Debunk About Leadership Development in Asia
We are facing the greatest disruption of our lifetime. The past few months have challenged all of our assumptions on business models, workflows, technology, and people. As the future scenarios and projected health and economic impacts change on a daily basis, organizations are scrambling to pull together their best people as ‘guides’ to find the way out of the current chaos.
Human resources and leadership functions are under extreme pressure not only to develop leaders to deal with the here-and-now challenges but also to proactively prepare organizations for the recovery. Disruption is also an opportunity to reset the leadership development function and view it with a very objective lens, without biases and prejudices.
Myths and urban legends are aplenty in the leadership development world. These include:
- Asian leaders are harder to develop for global leadership roles;
- Attending (only) classroom-based programs will make better leaders;
- Digital training is less impactful than face-to-face development.
If organizations continue to hold on to these relics, they will struggle to develop leaders at the required pace required by these new times. It is certainly time to debunk leadership development myths and energize the function.
ADP will bring you a webinar series, based on the study carried out by Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) Leadership Development in Asia: 7 Myths We Must Debunk, to reveal top myths organizations face as they develop future-fluent Asian leaders, and ways to debunk those myths. The session will also highlight some practical tools and tips to improve returns on leadership development initiatives in your organization.
