LEARNING LEADERSHIP: THE RISE OF THE LEARNING LEADER
Technology and knowledge are rapidly changing, making it harder for people to keep up. Within corporate organisations, learning functions are grappling with the challenge of ensuring that staff are receiving learning that is meaningful and impactful whilst dealing with change. One critical failing of L&D is that majority of learning is still developed with methodologies of knowledge retention that is becoming redundant and irrelevant. So how does the L&D function help organisations Learn, Unlearn and Relearn?
JOIN THE PROVOCATIVE DISCUSSION IN OUR COMPLIMENTARY EVENT
On October 20th, 2016, we’re hosting an exclusive Executive Forum and Think Tank Workshop with fellow industry leaders. This complimentary event is designed to unearth some answers to core questions, and equip guests with pathways and useful tools to help their organisations address some of these issues.
Learning Leadership: The Rise of the Learning Leader: 9:00am – 10:30aâm
Hear from our experts, Ashley Spowart, Kelly Palmer and Learning Seat’s own Phil Tutty during the morning’s executive briefing. Topics will be highly focussed on what leaders can do to create the right behaviours for people to learn in the changing digital landscape.
Learning Leadership Think Tank: 11:00am – 1:00pm
This hands-on workshop will be led by Ashley, and facilitated by industry leaders who have volunteered their time to participate in this event. This is a fantastic opportunity to work collaboratively L&D peers, and thrash out issues put forward by the Think Tank such as:
- What can L&D do, to first teach people how to learn in this modern era?
- What is required to unlearn critical skills/thinking in order to make room for new information?
- How do you relearn in a sustainable manner to use just in time approaches in accessing content when and where you need it?
- Finally, what is needed to hold all of this together in a manner that is sustainable and not overwhelming for organisations.
The goal of the workshop is to help L&D leaders complete a critical analysis of some of the issues addressed, with aims to uncover some answers to these core questions, and create a pathway for organisations to undertake in addressing these challenges.
Complimentary snacks and drinks will be provided.
