Workshop – leadership & management

Elizabeth McManus, Head of Transformational Leadership at The Oxford Group, will facilitate a practical session on the things that leaders find easy to say but hard to do, but which must happen if HR is to remain relevant in a digitising economy.

You will:

• Explore fostering a culture of innovation

• Consider humanity at work in high change environments – exploring how to positively impact your organisational culture and your customer experience

• Understand finding the right mindset – what to do when you don’t know what to do

• Debate experimentation – the benefits of creating safety around potential failure

• Identify how your leadership development needs to change to reflect the opportunities of the digital age

• Look at understanding the business you are in and breaking down functional barriers

• Create the foundations of an action plan specific to your organisation for structuring, communicating with and managing teams.


Workshop – organisational learning and development

Paul Westlake and Jez Anderson, Kineo, will define the role of HR in building digital capabilities, through practical exercises that bring to life the impact these experiences can have on informing an organisation’s learning journey.

You will:

• Explore the role of HR in meeting your organisational KPI’s

• Debate the value gained from engagement with your people

• Look at the difference between ‘push messaging’ versus genuinely bringing people with you authentically through learning

• Consider the holistic risks to your organisation which go beyond the bottom line

• Develop the foundations of the core principles needed for a strategic transformational learning vision which will make your organisation a digital destination
