LDC toolkits focus on a single theme that aim to give members a theoretical and practical understanding of a particular topic.

They have been designed to share and discuss with others and can be tailored to suit a team, agency or to cover a particular topic.

For example, HROD teams might use one toolkit a month to stimulate discussion of particular topics among your colleagues. As a manager, you may want to use a toolkit in your leadership development discussions with staff.

Most toolkits come in four parts:

  • an introductory flyer to the toolkit
  • theoretical information (on the topic of the toolkit, e.g., how to have the conversations you have been avoiding)
  • worksheets
  • case studies.

Each toolkit also features a list of sources for information on each subject.
