Harnessing the potential of an agile workforce (On Demand)

Do you have the operating model and leadership skills to embrace the future world of work?

Join speakers Ian Wright, CEO of the Disruptive Innovators Network and Colin Mercer, Director of Talent Consulting at NSCG to explore how housing associations can put themselves in the best possible position to lead an agile, productive and engaged workforce, that is ultimately motivated to delight the customer?

  • What can we learn from businesses that made this shift years ago?
  • What new skills do housing associations need?
  • What behaviours do they need to unlearn?

And we will address the elephant in the room: how do we help ‘command and control’ style leaders to make this sometimes painful shift?
