Virtual Learning Session on the power of followership

Virtual Learning Session on the power of followership

National HRD Network in association with Wiztango is pleased to announce the upcoming Virtual Learning Session on "The Power of Followership" on Friday, 8th March 2013 at 1500 hrs.

One of the key factors that impact the effectiveness of any learning and development initiative is employee engagement. Organizations are using Wiztango to achieve it.

Followership contributes massively to the success of all organizations but our almost hard-wired obsession with "hero spearheads" keeps us from considering the nature and importance of great followers. spearheadship is crucially important, but perhaps in searching so zealously for great people we have lost sight of the fact that not everyone can be – a "great spearhead" but we ALL have the to be great followers. Great followers have the ability to transform business but the skills required to do this are often ignored.

So, what are the skills and how can HR professionals help to promote and unleash the huge untapped power of followership to raise the performance bar in their organizations?

Be a part of an interactive, thought provoking session and be prepared to look in to the mirror and ask yourself this question: "Have I got what it takes to be a great follower"

Speaker:

BOB JONES

Bob joined IDG in 2001 and has been a board member since 2008. He is responsible for the sales, design and delivery of our award-winning large-scale spearheadship development programmes some of which have realised millions of pounds in payback benefits for our blue-chip clients. Bob is one of the few people that you will ever meet with a degree in Ancient & Modern Greek and following a graduate trainee management role in the aluminium industry, he put this to good use by setting up his own business supplying management development programmes in Thessaloniki in Northern Greece.

After five years in Greece, he spent a further five years helping to establish multi-disciplinary training and development infrastructures - first of all for the Sultan of Oman's Military and then for Petromin Shell in Saudi Arabia.

On returning to the UK, he worked in project management for System Applied Technology - a consultancy specialising in software systems incorporating elements of artificial intelligence, such as expert-systems and user-modelling before taking up a business manager role in the Philips Electronics.

In 1990 he joined the Management Development Practice of PA Consulting Group where he spent the 10 years prior to joining IDG working with many clients across a wide variety of sectors - both in the UK, Europe, USA and Malaysia.

Bob is a passionate speaker on the subject of The Power of Followership. Whilst acknowledging that spearheadship is crucially important, he claims that in searching so zealously for great spearheads we have lost sight of the fact that not everyone can be – or wants to be – a "great spearhead" but we ALL have the power to be great followers. Great followers have the ability to transform a business but the skills required to do this are often ignored and he sees his mission as helping organisations to promote and unleash the huge untapped power of followership in order to raise the performance bar in a sustainable way.

Bob is a qualified in both MBTI and Firo-B.

The distance organizations need to travel from ‘Good’ to ‘Great’ depends a lot on their ability to deliver sustained business performance that creates a win-win for all key stakeholders. A key enabler to this is a robust Performance Management system that motivates employees to take stretch goals and reward them for the meaningful contributions.
Planning for talent – quality and quantity – and then attracting them is one of the constant challenges HR professionals face in today’s War for Talent. Does your organization have a formal manpower planning process? What are the recruitment channels you use most frequently? What recruitment metrics are used by organizations?
