Thursday, February 25 | 2:00 – 2:45 p.m. E.T.

The learning and development (L&D) function is uniquely positioned to meet the needs of the evolving workplace. The speed and scale of change over the last year shows no sign of slowing down, and leaders and employees alike are being challenged. L&D’s strengths in agility, innovation and transformation can help businesses face these challenges with confidence. Now more than ever before, elevating L&D as a trusted, strategic partner is essential for business success. 

Building trust and demonstrating L&D’s strategic effectiveness hinges on your ability to identify and collaborate with key stakeholders across various levels of the business. Know who your decision-makers are, as well as your influencers. Understand when to say “yes, and” and how to say “no.” Show how your solutions are directly impacting business objectives. 

Join us for this L&D Insider session. Your presenter, Erin Cherry, manager of human resource services and organizational learning and development at NAVEX Global, will share how you can take your L&D function from passive provider to influential partner. 

What you will learn: 

  • Tips for identifying and engaging with multi-level decision-makers and influencers. 
  • How to communicate candidly and in collaboration, so you can deliver the right training at the right time. 
  • Methods for telling the story of L&D’s business value and impact.
