The 8 Roles of Learning and Development Leaders during Times of Crisis – (“The Role of L&D Leaders Part 2”)

1. A Change Champion

Unlearn old habits. Embrace new ones.

2. A Multi-faceted Leader

You are not only a L&D Leader. You are also an inspirer, a coach, a counselor, an adaptor, a friend.

3. A Learning Curator

You are no longer just a facilitator, but a curator of learning goals and activities in your organization.

4.An Agile Survivor

Adapt to the challenging demand and thinking of resilience. How can you bounce back if you fail?

5. A Self-driven Learner

This is a time to learn and capacitate yourself. Gain new skills. Learn from or with others.

6. A Tech-Savvy

Be brave to experiment. Fall fast but fail smart.

7. An Emphatic Co-worker

We are in difficult situation. While you may be able to adapt, others may find it hard to cope.

8. A Champion for Inclusion

As we shift to digital learning, bear in mind those who might lack access to internet and technology.
