Personalized leadership development holds great potential to drastically change the learning experience. It taps participant engagement, promotes ownership, and builds independence and confidence, while maximizing the leader's learning potential based on their individual needs, abilities, and preferences. Today, learners have access to diverse content and are making their personal preferences known regarding what is included in their training and the format in which they receive that content. They want to focus on learning that is unique to their current situation taking into account where they are in their careers and in their lives. At the same time, we need to ensure that they are achieving their behavior development goals. In this interactive session, you will learn the five practices for harnessing the power of personalized leadership development: personalized content, personalized insight, personalized practice, personalized performance support, and personalized learning environment.
