Key learnings


Leadership must walk as it talks and lead by example.


A clear vision and values should be formulated and communicated throughout the organisation that include a learning culture.


Create targeted awareness and communications campaigns within the organisation to encourage adherence to lifelong learning.

Guiding questions

  • How does leadership keep the talent pipeline firmly in the centre of the organisation's strategic planning?
  • How do you develop adaptive leadership in a VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous) world?
  • How do you turn your leaders and managers into mentors and learning coaches?
  • How does leadership play a role in modelling the right behaviours, clear communications etc?
  • How does leadership ensure that time needed for learning is built into the weekly workload of every employee?
  • How does leadership enable "job swaps", for example CEO for a day, or shop floor engineer for a week?
  • How does leadership accept bottom up innovation and proposals in lifelong learning?
