How connected are your leaders to your business? How connected is your business to their development?
Frontline and mid-level leaders are facing new and more complex challenges – and the skills for their success have been redefined. Is your development solution designed top produce ready-now leaders across your pipeline?
Today’s development solutions require a strategic, practical approach, which can’t be accomplished in a one-time event. Research from HR.com and DDI revealed that 9% of HR professionals rate their development programs as very high when they had a menu of open enrollment, classroom-based courses.
In contrast 91% of HR professionals rated their development initiatives very high when they had a planned journey approach, with continuous learning and a mix of methods.
So how do you ensure that your development initiatives build better skills that lead to improved performance and higher engagement in the new business landscape? Learning journeys employ a development approach anchored in business strategy with practical application.
During this workshop, we’ll explore how to leverage the learning journey as a framework to develop leaders, as well as best practices and real case studies from innovative organizations that have successfully used learning journeys for their development initiatives. You will also get hands-on experience designing two learning journeys.
You’ll return to your job ready to:
- Incorporate the 70/20/10 principle for frontline and mid-level leaders
- Integrate best practices for new components and methodologies, such as Learning 2.0 into your development programs
- Ensure alignment between development solutions and your organization’s strategic priorities
