Leadership Development – Good….Different!

What if everything we think about leadership development is different to how we know it to be?

What are the latest trends in leadership development and what does this mean to you, your business and our Toastmasters’ experience?

What’s missing in most leadership development programmes?

How can our clubs take advantage of these latest trends?

Based on a review of 42 current leadership development research papers and over 20 years of delivering ‘leadership development’ programmes nationally and internationally, this session provides an overview of how, in the past 5 years, leadership development has changed and will continue changing in the future.

With Pathways well and truly here, understanding how the leadership paradigm has changed outside of Toastmasters will enable you, and your club, to become an enabler of outstanding leadership development within your community; bringing to life the Toastmasters statement: ‘Where Leaders Are Made”.
