The Leader as a Developer of Talent. With Guest Speaker Professor David Clutterbuck, author of ‘The Talent Wave’.

Thursday March 25th, 2021 | 11:00 am to 1:30 pm

Join us on the 25th March in this thought provoking and evidence-based session where David Clutterbuck will explore both theory and practice in developing sustainable leadership qualities in talented employees as they progress through levels in the organisation.

The session will explore:

  • How leaders can become more accurate in their identification of talent,
  • The need to replace linear, simplistic thinking about leadership and leader development with complex adaptive systems thinking,
  • 4 critical conversations that leaders can promote to enable talented people to manage their own career planning and personal development,
  • Strategies for increasing “requisite diversity”,
  • How to promote open, courageous dialogue and psychological safety,
  • How to make sure that the next generation of leadership is even smarter, better connected and more effective than you are.

David will draw on research and case study from around the world to illustrate these themes. Participants will leave with:

  • A more grounded approach to talent development in their teams and beyond,
  • Some practical ideas for immediate personal change,
  • An extensive talent management toolkit.

This session is specifically aimed at NHS HR, OD and Talent Management professionals and senior leaders who have a responsibility for leader and talent development within an organisation or across a system.
