Need versus Time: an On-Demand Leadership Development Solution that Saves Time & Money

Time is something we discuss often in the business world. Whether it’s about the lack of time or the best use of time, it is clear that in this ever-changing world, time is something exceptionally valuable to every company, especially those with learning and development teams. 

In the past three years, we have seen the workplace landscape change in ways that have left it nearly unrecognizable from what it once was. Not only are organizations operating more virtually, but the pandemic brought on what is now being called “The Great Resignation” as employees prioritize their own time differently, searching for a work culture that supports their evolving needs.

A Gallup poll found that 48% of employees are actively looking for new opportunities. Post-pandemic employees are looking for workplaces where they feel cared for and trusted to get their work done and have flexibility and better communication while being offered more training and career development. As the year is coming to an end, here are three key concerns your L&D team should be addressing in 2023. 

1.  COMMUNICATION in a Hybrid Workplace

Communication in a more virtual workplace has brought new challenges that many were not prepared for. This means more training is necessary for businesses to adapt to these ever-evolving changes. According to the World Economic Forum's Future of Jobs Report, 50% of all employees will need reskilling by 2025 as the adoption of technology increases, and 40% of workers will require reskilling of six months or less. 

Q: What is your L&D team doing to make reskilling a strategic priority for 2023?

A: Be sure that reskilling is a performance goal for all employees, along with conducting internal data collection to determine where reskilling opportunities exist and align that with your corporate strategic goals for the next 18 months. 

2.  TEAM BUILDING in a Hybrid Workplace

As more and more teams are dispersed in the virtual workplace, this has caused a breakdown in communication, collaboration, and trust. Many businesses are onboarding hundreds of employees that never meet the team in-person for maybe a year or longer. 

    Q: What programs does your L&D team have in place to build trust and collaboration when your teams can’t meet face-to-face? 

    A: PRC recommends that team building takes place at the start of each meeting as an opportunity to personally connect as well as bring teams together IRL (in real life) at least twice a year. 

    3. MASTERING DIFFICULT CONVERSATIONS: Moving Past Conflict & Toward Cooperation

      As more Millennials are joining the workforce, they like to receive and give feedback differently. Communication breakdowns are one leading cause of The Great Resignation. 

      Q: How is your L&D team bridging this communication gap and helping to maintain a productive workplace? 

      A: We recommend that every team builds six key agreements, one of those being how the team agrees to manage conflict when it comes up, even virtually.

      If your L&D team needs support in building these solutions, Powers Resource Center’s (PRC’s) “Build Up” Done-for-You Workshops offer a turn-key solution that can meet all your training needs without losing that valuable time.
