Last week I presented a session titled Leadership Development in a Learning 2.0 World at the CSTD 2010 National Symposium. Here is the description of the session from the conference program:
Leadership Development in a Learning 2.0 WorldDeveloping effective leaders and managers is an increasingly important task for the learning function. Leadership development has been slow to adopt eLearning strategies but recent developments in web 2.0 technologies, along with changing perspectives on workplace learning are changing that. The social learning drivers behind learning 2.0 are a natural fit for the learning needs of managers and leaders and provide the learning function with an opportunity for real innovation in leadership development practices. This session will provide an overview of the key concepts, strategies and tools to help transform leadership development practices for the emerging learning 2.0 world.Learning Outcomes:
- Contrast current leadership development practices with learning 2.0 driven practices
- Describe benefits of learning 2.0 for transforming leadership and management development
- Describe a model of leadership development driven by learning 2.0 principles
- Envision a future Leadership Development program for your organization on a by a learning 2.0 foundation
- Define strategies for integrating learning 2.0 concepts into current leadership development programs

Dan Pontefract was originally scheduled to present with me but he was not able to make it. For those of you interested in in Dan’s very active and always interesting blog Training Wreck you can find it here.
Conference attendees braved the snow (yes, snow!) in Calgary to participate in some very interesting sessions. As always, it was a pleasure to connect with old colleagues and meet many new people with interesting perspectives on the profession. Thanks to the CSTD organizing team!
