  • Heide Abelli, SVP of Content Product Management at Skillsoft will review key findings from ground-breaking research Skillsoft has recently done around the changing nature of leadership development. As a teaser, a few of these findings include:

    •Changing leadership competencies are ubiquitous. A whopping 76% of organizations say they have either changed their leadership competencies recently, just created leadership competencies for the first time or plan to change their leadership competencies soon.

    •Most organizations still have a long way to go in pushing leadership development down to lower levels of the organization. It’s the norm for organizations to target senior, mid-level and front-line leaders with development, but only a third of organizations currently target individual contributors with leadership development. This is in direct contrast to the 95% of HR leaders who say that employees who are not in a direct supervisory role now need leadership skills and the 86% who say that employees are assuming leadership roles without a formal leader designation.

    •It’s clear that organizations are still in the process of changing competencies to include digital/agile competencies but there is a gap for many organizations with respect to the attitudinal, digital/agile and skill competencies between their stated importance and their inclusion in leadership development programs currently used by organizations.

    This eye-opening research into leadership development trends will encourage you to ask yourself some probing questions about how your leadership development program stacks up against the new demands leaders face in the digital economy. We will also share how our new Leadership Development Program (SLDP) can help organizations modernize their approach to continuous leadership development. We will review in detail SLDP’s feature set against the back-drop of the previously-presented research. The feature discussion will include commentary on the scenario-based instructional model, the emphasis on reflection and practice, and the optimization of learner experience in an on-demand, continuous-learning development solution.

  • DXC is developing an integrated learning ecosystem, designed to adapt to the changing needs of their organization. It begins with a demand pipeline of the skills needed to fulfill client projects, which is then compared to the current skillsets of delivery teams to identify skills gaps.

This is an iterative process involving Skillsoft Program Management Services and close collaboration with the Product Development teams to ensure the needs and content development pipeline are in sync. Learning is delivered through structured Academies powered by integrated tools including an LMS and Skillport.

  • In 2016, the HEC Montréal Library found itself in the same difficult situation as many other business school libraries. The main challenge for the Library was to confirm its relevance by ensuring that it had a fundamental role to play in the School’s learning and research community. It was in this context that the School’s administrators asked for a complete revision of the Library's business model. They insisted that the Library make the changes necessary for it to meet the twenty-first century needs of professors, researchers, and students, particularly in the area of digital resources and services. Two years later, the Library has defined its new business model, one that is focused on providing research data and knowledge management services. This presentation will describe the management strategies used to carry out this important restructuring project, the challenges that the Library has had to meet, the benefits for the HEC Montréal community as a whole, and the optimistic future that lies ahead for Library employees.

  • Society romanticizes the notion that upper management understands the full potential of its safety and health professionals when in fact, that is rarely the case. In fact, a trained safety and health function professional is probably more likely to be an ambassador of culture change than even a high profile CEO. Why? Because the safety professional acts in a highly visible corporate domain with decisions that are necessarily public. By acting values-congruent, the S&H pro is a model for strengthening both local and corporate culture all across the enterprise. Business leaders of tomorrow could benefit from recognizing that their own safety leaders are influential role models for culture change moving from mere compliance to a values-based and profitable corporate culture.

  • Provide an overview of our journey in creating a development program for individual contributors who aspire to become future leaders. Limited resources required a more innovative approach in creating an impactful development program that could potentially touch hundreds of individual contributors.
