In this ever-changing world, we know that the demands placed on leaders are continually evolving. We also know that in today’s digital age, the majority of us are ‘knowledge workers’.
That is to say we may not all be leaders in the formal sense, but we are all expected to lead every day. Projects, meetings, problem-solving, coaching colleagues, giving feedback, breaking down silos … the list of ‘leadership moments’ goes on.
AchieveForum set up the Leadership Roundtable Podcast to explore the leadership challenges and opportunities that these moments, and L&D more broadly, present us with. Here’s a round-up of recent content that we thought you might enjoy!
