Enhancing the Learner Experience

With the rise of informal and social learning, the most successful organizations are focusing on the learner experience, making it essential for learning leaders to identify agile and creative learning programs. The most effective learning leaders prioritize learners’ needs and preferences to ensure training solutions are available when employees need them most.

The Role of On-demand Learning

The demands on learners are ever-increasing and their ability to invest time in formal learning is shrinking. It’s time for L&D to meet learners where they are. On-demand learning offers employees anywhere, anytime, any way access to self-tailored learning experiences. Giving employees access to training at their own pace and in the flow of work allows their learning needs to be met in the moment, and improves retention and application.

Sales Enablement

Sales Enablement

Are your sales enablement programs measuring up? The enablement programs you implement are uniquely positioned to enhance revenue generation as your salespeople have conversations with customers and serve as the face of your organization. Learning leaders must be proactive to ensure they are uncovering and working to fix skills gaps that might be present due to selling in new environments.

Creating Engaging Learning Experiences

Creating Engaging Learning Experiences

The demands on learners are ever-increasing and their ability to invest time in formal learning is shrinking. More organizations are recognizing the importance of driving continuous and personalized learning. With the rise of informal and social learning, the most successful organizations are focusing on the learner experience at large rather than one-off events, making it essential for learning leaders to identify agile and creative learning experiences. Are your programs up to speed?

Getting the Most Out of Your Learning Technology

Getting the Most Out of Your Learning Technology

The most effective training organizations have one thing in common: seamless technology integration. Yet, despite its critical role, technology continues to challenge and threaten to upend many organizations globally. To keep up with the exceptional rate of advancements in technology, learning leaders must figure out how to leverage these tools to get the most out of their investments and their people.

Sales Training and Enablement

Sales Training and Enablement

The current, globally connected selling environment presents a breadth of unanticipated and daunting challenges to modern salespeople and their leaders. To keep pace in the hybrid and virtual sales space, organizations and their learning departments must update their approaches to sales training and enablement to equip sales professionals with the skills they need to succeed. Sales training leaders would be wise to seize the present opportunity to update and enhance their sales education and enablement strategies.

Modern Leadership Development

Modern Leadership Development

It’s no secret that the most impactful leaders do much more than simply delegate tasks and manage people and processes. For centuries, the most prolific leaders have also taken on roles as mentors, teachers, advocates, coaches, cheerleaders, change agents, strategists and experts — and the list goes on. However, in the modern business environment, employees are looking to and relying on their leaders more than ever before. Your leaders have the opportunity to be powerful champions and influencers of change and workforce resilience, but they need the learning and development opportunities to do so.

Experiential Learning Technologies

Experiential Learning Technologies

Immersive and experiential learning technologies – such as virtual reality, mixed reality and simulation-based training – are revolutionizing learning and skills development by providing employees with hands-on learning experiences in risk-free environments. These technologies are no longer strictly reserved for high-risk, technical job functions. In addition to simulating environments where learners can fail without suffering real-world consequences, use cases for experiential learning technologies extend across industries and skills sets, including the development of leadership and soft skills.

The Learner Experience

The Learner Experience

The most effective learning leaders prioritize learners’ needs and preferences to place easily accessible, highly engaging and thoughtfully designed learning solutions in the hands of their learners. Today, technologies such as learning experience platforms (LXPs) offer learning professionals a transformative tool to provide comprehensive and seamlessly integrated learning programs that result in measurable learning impact for the business.

Measuring Learning Impact

Measuring Learning Impact

As learning leaders forge a way forward for their organizations in 2021, the ability to measure and demonstrate the impact of the learning solutions you provide will be more critical than ever. Uncover the secrets and best practices of effective learning measurement to better predict, achieve and sustain learning outcomes and organizational performance.

Employee Wellness

Employee Wellness

Amid shifts in work environments and workloads, it’s more important than ever to prioritize employee well-being, encouraging an appropriate and sustainable balance of work and rest, so employees remain healthy, happy and capable of doing their best work. Learning leaders can combat employee burnout by incorporating and emphasizing employee wellness in their learning solutions.
