Towards Maturity’s 7 secrets of top performing L&D teams

by | Oct 7, 2013 | Articles

Today’s L&D function is under intense pressure. Globalisation, technology, continual change and focus on talent means that more is demanded of learning teams who have diminishing resources to draw on.

This presentation by Towards Maturity Managing Director, Laura Overton, draws on research with over 2,900 organisations to outline 7 secrets of top performing teams. The presentation was first delivered as part of a webinar in conjunction with SuccessFactors, a SAP company.

Since our first report – Linking Learning to Business 10 years ago, we have been investigating the behaviour of successful learning organisations. For us, successful teams are those who are delivering bottom line business impact, motivating and supporting staff in meaningful ways and delivering results efficiently and effectively. In the Towards Maturity Model, we have identified 6 workstreams of behaviour that consistently influence results.

In this presentation, first delivered as part of a webinar in conjunction with our founding Ambassador, Successfactors, on the 3rd of October, we’ve distilled 7 secrets of top performing L&D teams. Just working on one of these secrets will help you take a single step forward, working on them all will really accelerate your progress.

Learning can be defined in many ways, but most psychologists would agree that it is a relatively permanent change in behaviour that results from experience. The three major types of learning described by behavioural psychology are; classical conditioning, operant conditioning and observational learning. In order for learning to stick and becomes the new normal, all three types require self-driven will. Therefore, how people view the world through their lens matters.
