L&D professionals, more than ever, are seeking impactful, flexible approaches to strengthen employee engagement, keep people connected, and promote flourishing – for everyone within the organization. We have been collaborating with top management and business thinkers since 2008 to develop expert content in the form of peer learning discussion guides. Read on to discover five ways to connect and develop leaders with peer learning.
1. Connect and Develop in a Hybrid Workplace
Leadership cafés, live or online, bring hundreds together to discuss topics such as “Candid Conversations", “Building Purpose at Work and In Life”, “Influencing Others: Leading through Trust”, and more. The cafés provide participants with a privileged space for connection, relationship building, and an increased sense of belonging, all while fueling a culture of continuous learning.
2. C-Suite Conversations - Senior Leadership
Ensure your organization stays agile by getting your senior leaders around the (virtual) table for mutual exchange and authentic conversations. Use CoachingOurselves to add social learning to leadership programs. CoachingOurselves provides expert content for peer learning written by renowned thinkers such as Edgar Schein, Henry Mintzberg, and Linda Hill. This catalyzes new ideas and discussions which will bring into light previously unseen opportunities and learnings.
3. High-Potentials and New Leaders
Help high potentials and new leaders develop the authentic relationships that will enable them to be successful for your organization. Younger learners naturally take to social learning around tasks and challenges. Provide them space to practice their communication, coaching, and collaboration skills while they expand their peer network. Expert content meets participants’ insights to fuel skill building and expand knowledge of best practices.
4. Culture Change
Educate and inspire change champions with specially selected peer learning topics such as Managing Culture Change: Beyond the Status Quo. Once prepared the change champions use CoachingOurselves with teams of operational leaders to make the desired culture change a reality. For organizations with many (retail) branches, each with its own leadership team, these sessions are instrumental in aligning employees around a common vision, purpose, or culture change.
5. “Lunch and Learns”, Employee Resource Groups and Management Offsites
CoachingOurselves currently has over 90 peer learning discussion guides on a variety of topics such “Harnessing Women’s Vision and Leadership Strengths”, “Leading with Humility”, and “Climate Actions for Every Employee” By providing high quality content you can ensure your groups or events are a success. Sessions are 90 minutes - long enough to inspire in-depth conversations, facilitate knowledge transfer, and spark unexpected ideas.
