Impactful leadership in a virtual world

We’re on a mission to support businesses worldwide to harness leadership and management skills, and behaviours in their people and businesses.

Businesses worldwide have had to adapt the way they lead their teams and change their strategies for workforce skills development. So, with constant change and a shift to virtual working, how are businesses supporting the wellbeing of their workforce, ensuring performance is maintained, and their customer experience is not impacted?

ILM’s thought leadership series aims to stimulate discussion and enable business leaders to share experiences and best practice on coping through change, building future leaders and driving business growth.

leadership speakers

Listen to business leaders from around the world share learnings from the past ten months, discuss what makes leadership most impactful and answer the burning questions on every employer’s mind. How can we create an impact in business through remote working?
