This past year was one of significant disruptions in technology and budget for leadership development, according to the Annual Leadership Survey conducted by Training magazine and Wilson Learning Worldwide.

And as the dust continues to settle in the aftermath of COVID and the birth of the hybrid work environment, we could be in line for the next shockwave as artificial intelligence and generative AI (genAI) are poised to reset leadership development, introducing changes in how it is financed, delivered, and evaluated.

Join Dr. Michael Leimbach, VP of Global Research and Development for Wilson Learning, and Lorri Freifeld, Editor/Publisher of Training magazine, for this webinar, which will explore results and takeaways from the survey, including:
  • The current state of leadership development (including levels of investment, priority skills, and the most effective learning methods for leadership development)
  • Usage of genAI in leadership development programs, plus challenges to adoption
  • Best practices and tips from high-performing companies to strengthen leadership development efforts
Learn how you can help ensure today’s leaders have the necessary skills to successfully navigate the seismic changes on the horizon.
