Feeding the Passion for Transformation: Be it Talent, Culture, Work or HR

Nothing - it is very quiet, and not very fun.
For many years, we have heard the saying that an organization is only as good as its people and a company is only as strong as its most engaged employees.  
I believe this to be true – at the same time, we all know the figures around disengagement and the fight around not having enough of the “right” skills and capabilities in this new world of work.
Therefore, in all industries across the spectrum, we are finding a new-found willingness to experiment with what might work better to fit the real needs of our organizations.
To this end, I am honoured to be the official Chairwoman for the Global Learning and Development summit taking place this week in Amsterdam.
On the docket are the key themes innovation, engagement, culture, diversity and the future of work.  Themes, which challenge us as leaders to ask: 
How are we empowering people to rapidly gain skills and capabilities in a fast-changing world?
How do we ensure that our people thrive during change? 
How do we ensure the most positive impact of our efforts?
How are we attending to our own personal and professional growth?
Digging into my archives to prepare my summit workshop Facing Our Paradigms: Talent, Learning and the Future of Work, I found myself thinking of the motto from Green Tortoise “arrive inspired, not dog-tired”. The thought drew me back to the topics of purpose, innovation and talent expectations of the modern workforce.
So here is a bit of inspiration for your journey.
