  • Episode 29 | Corporate Training is Dead - Here's Why​

    Learning and development practitioners are tasked to move at the speed of business. But the reality is, it’s not feasible. As a result, L&D practitioners and the learners they serve must have a mind shift that:

    • Recognizes there’s a ton of learning going on AWAY from the company’s LMS

    • L&D leaders must be okay with this and not see it as a threat

    • L&D leaders must build the correct ecosystem to acknowledge the learning their team is gobbling up

    • L&D leaders must encourage self-directed learning even more to augment their efforts​

    In this episode Thomas Harrell walks us through some good tips on keeping up with learning and development presently and in the future.

  • Episode 30 | Inclusive Leadership - Traits & Behaviors that Create an Inclusive & Welcoming Environment ​

    Research shows 80% of individuals who work with an inclusive leader were more productive, motivated, and loyal to the organization as well as willing to go the extra mile. Inclusive leaders understand that in order for collaboration to be successful, individuals must be willing to share their diverse perspectives and experiences. However, only two thirds of the respondents stated that in their experience less than half of their managers and Senior Leaders actually demonstrated inclusive behaviors and traits.

     

    Given this, how do we then identify and create more inclusive leaders to adopt methods that produce sustainable outcomes? Tune in to this episode to learn from an diversity and inclusion expert!
