CEB Learning and Development Leadership Council Executive Meeting Series
A New Manager Mandate

This event is reserved for those with an existing CEB Corporate Leadership Council™ membership.

Join us to learn how to support line managers in driving employee development and performance throughout organizational change.

Eighty percent of Heads of L&D identify the increasing pace of organizational change as the number one obstacle to developing employees today. During times of change, L&D relies heavily on managers to help drive employee outcomes. But most managers today are overwhelmed and ineffective at coaching and developing their employees. The best L&D functions help managers prioritize the most important development activities throughout change, while also facilitating alternative development connections and driving accountability for development across the organization.


AER Attendance Requirements:

Head of Learning & Development only; delegates not permitted.
