IPL Award Winners Showcase: Leadership Development

IPL Award Winners Showcase: Leadership Development
Hear what innovative and effective companies have done with their leadership development training programs.

Leadership development is a process not an event. Leaders develop through their experiences on the job, the exposure to others such as their peers, senior leaders, thought and industry leaders, and education aligned to business outcomes. The WSIB’s Manager Program is a 12 month journey for experienced managers providing them with the experiences, exposure and educational opportunities they need to develop their capabilities and grow as leaders. The program received an Award of Excellence from the Institute for Performance and Learning in 2016.

Christine Hammill and Megan Keast, Talent Management Consultants at the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board, will facilitate this interactive discussion about leadership development. During the session they will highlight the key features of WSIB’s Manager Program and share their experiences designing and implementing the program. They will also take you through one of the most impactful and popular components of the Manager Program; Challenges to Opportunities.

Turning challenges to opportunities

Think about the challenges that you and your teams are facing designing and implementing leadership programs.

Submit your “challenges” via email to Toronto@performanceandlearning.ca by October 19th. The list of challenges will be compiled and those who submitted the challenges will not be identified. Be prepared to collaborate with other participants to find solutions to turn your challenges to opportunities.
