We in ‘civilised’ society talk of girls and women and their emotional ways
Yet I experience
Again and again
Young boys with strong, clear and overwhelming emotion
What happens as they grow?
Be a man
Tears won’t solve it
The control of their uncontrollable helps us feel safe. We teach them control is the way.
Welcome to the CIPD Learning & Development Show Blog Carnival Curation!!! Or CIPDLDSHOWBCC for short 😉
Back in March I invited people to share their thoughts about what helps us make every day a learning day – the theme of the L&D Show this year. As I sit here now and look at the bountiful array of pieces that have been written I feel huge appreciation for everyone who’s contributed and delighted by the serendipity of how they have all come together with – I guarantee! – no coordination of content from me.
This is Transport for London with Alexandra Bode-Tunji who’s Programme Lead Skills & Capabilities. It’s going to look at some of the obstacles, engaging sponsors, stakeholders and employees, and the transition process.
Didn’t know TFL was the 7th most recognised brand!
Context for change – rising customer expectations, pressure on costs, new technology and changes in regulatory. This will be a familiar story in many organisations – private and public. And the change to an improved experience at lower cost had to be done while taking employees on the journey.
A great piece from Sukh Pabial to acknowledge that looking for the good and being positive is helpful – and so is expressing our sadness, frustration or anger.
Where do you feel safe and supported to do this?
I pressed publish instead of saving to draft!
You can hopefully see that blurb evolve into something sensible over the next week or so when I publish something for a local solicitor’s firm.
I care about people being at their best.
My business is about helping SME leaders be at their best so their teams and their business can be too.
So I spend a lot of time reading posts and articles about what makes a great or terrible leader. What 5 things a manager must do. What the secret ingredient is we’ve been missing all these years.
The blog squad have gone our separate ways and I’ve joined this session with Bernadette Cass of Heworth Associates and Peter Lumley of Realising Change. Both are coaches.
Coaching can be amazing to give people space to think but we need this to also make a difference to a business – that’s what we’re going to hear about.
Next it’s Martin Ferguson, MD, and Sara McTrusty, HR Manager of MJF Cleaning Services.
Doing it right when no one else is looking – great tag line! And a great link to leadership – sign of a great leader to be able to leave their team and they still deliver because they know where they’re heading.
First day of the CIPD L&D today, 30th April, which I feel privileged to have been able to attend as a tweeter and blogger.
I’ve listened to sessions on –
Cultivating trustworthy leaders
Creating a manager-led coaching culture
Developing resilient yet agile leaders
And I’m reflecting on what I’ve heard.
