Staying competitive in a disruptive world (part 2): discussing the findings of the Cumbria LSIP final report

Cumbria’s Local Skills Improvement Plan (LSIP) is an employer-led and locally owned initiative which aims to set out the key priorities needed to make technical education and skills provision more responsive to the changing needs of employers and the local economy.

August 2023 saw the release of this year’s LSIP report for Cumbria. Find out more.

To discuss the findings of the report we’re joined by Local Skills Improvement Plan (LSIP) Engagement Manager, Kevin Warman, and Chamber member and Certified Career & Leadership Executive Coach Alec Pearson.

Our conversation is spilt into two parts:

  • Part 1 looks at employability skills, emotional intelligence, and recruitment and retainment.
  • Part 2 looks at challenges surrounding leadership and management, coaching, skills of the future and AI, and what’s next for the LSIP.

Suggested reflective questions for business leaders provided by Alec Pearson

Planning for 2024:

  • What is your successful outcome for 2024?
  • What issues or possibly own self-limiting beliefs might impact this?
  • What lessons can you learn from the last 12-24 months to help you shape a successful strategy?
    • As a result, what are the feasible steps you should take?
  • Does the level of available skills in your organisation support your successful outcome aim?  If not, what skills are required?
  • What additional support do you need required?
