Open Your “I”s with Learning Analytics - Insights, Ideas & Impact

The field of L&D is slowly learning how to collect and use data and analytics to:

  • gain insights into how your learners are engaging with your programs

  • gather ideas on improving the efficiency and effectiveness of your learning programs

  • measure the impact that your learning programs have on the performance of your learners

One of the challenges with bringing learning analytics to the forefront of an L&D practice is that L&D organizations are often trying to do this on their own without sharing best practices. In this session, we’ll bring a group of the best in L&D together to help accelerate the adoption and scale best practices and lessons learned. We will send a survey in advance of the session to gather insights and to help L&D build these muscles and capabilities. We will share the survey results in the session and facilitate a conversation to help answer some of key questions around the role of analytics in L&D.

Skills for the Future: How to See Around Corners and Offer Experiences That Translates into a Competitive Advantage 

As learning professionals, we talk about the need to continually upskill our people to address today’s business challenges that include managing a hybrid workforce, developing remote leaders, and creating agile work practices. The demands continue to grow and the expectation from the business is a quick, effective response.  During this session we will review agile ways to address to quickly identify and close gaps to include measuring effectiveness, real time feedback, and action learning.

Learning & Development as a Business Problem Solver

Now more than ever, Learning & Development teams are called upon to not only upskill employees, but prepare them for the business challenges of the immediate future. Whether it’s developing new leaders, creating new competencies, or preparing for an unanticipated growth spurt, the demand has been, well, demanding for Learning teams.

How Learning leaders respond to the call will be critical. Do we go in with tried and true learning methods, or do we take risks and apply something new and potentially uncomfortable.

In this panel discussion:

· Hear from live case studies from learning leaders who designed and delivered business solutions through employee development

· Listen to different approaches to needs analysis. How do learning leaders arrive at their solution options?

· What are some of the more innovative learning approaches to solving problems?

· What are the outcomes of these approaches?

Executive Presence in 2022? The Game has Changed.

How leaders present themselves has been a debate for ages. It’s well researched, dozens of books debate the topic, and countless businesses make their living training how it’s done. Then covid happened. At best only half the same rules apply. We give people a window into our home, our lives, and…we can be wearing pajama pants (shhh). The game has changed – have you?

How Actors Help Leaders Build Impact and Influence in a Hybrid World

Actors use a range of techniques to bring words to their life and move their audience. As Learning & Development professionals, we can learn a huge amount from them in order to help individuals unleash their full potential.

Acting is universal - it’s all around us, all of the time - and we all do it, at work and in wider life, irrespective of whether or not we appear on-stage or a film set. Did you shower or brush your teeth this morning? Did you make - or purchase - and then enjoy a delicious hot beverage? Then you acted, it’s as simple as that.

We all have modes of behaviour - ways of acting - in different contexts. Let’s call them ‘different hats’. And we mostly wear those different hats unconsciously - that is, we don’t really think about what we need to do differently in whatever context we find ourselves, we just do it naturally and authentically.

We share the secrets to an approach that's helped over 20,000 leaders build impact and influence

Succession Planning – Simple Steps for a Simple Process

Succession planning can overwhelm even the most dedicated leaders and teams that want to go through the process. By identifying and laying out the step by step process (and activities involved in the process) in a simple and powerful way, you can lead your teams through the process with much more clarity and purpose. Succession planning is the foundation for pouring into the leaders and employees of today to ensure future success for the organization tomorrow.
