Distance is relative – blend your learning!

I’m working with a client as they move from a face-2-face modality to an online delivery model being driven by the need to deliver a consistent leadership program to a new group of leaders separated by time zones and countries.

It’s not the ROI, ROL matters more!

I had a conversation recently with a learning leader at an organization who was being pushed to show their ROI – return on investment.  Granted in the last couple of years they have brought a new LMS online and added designers to the team so management wanted to know if the expenses were paying off.   … Continue reading

Let’s focus on the WIIFM…

So what comes first, employees go learn or employers invest in learning?  Many organizations offer tuition reimbursement but did you know that recent research found that only an “average 51% of financial benefits offered to employees is utilized annually”?  What struck me was the different perspectives on why current workers are not willing to upskill … Continue reading
