Building a Global Learning Culture

by | Feb 1, 2016 | Articles, Event Slides

Building a learning culture that impacts individual and business performance is the holy grail of most L&D leaders. How do we shift the mindset of business leaders and learners- especially when they are scattered around the globe?

How do we transition from delivering online courses to creating an environment that stimulates sharing, communication and learning as a matter of course?  

In this session, first delivered at Learning Technologies February  2016, Laura Overton draws on insights from over 600 L&D leaders in the latest Towards Maturity Benchmark Study and Anne Watson HR director of CCL Industries (previously Worldmark) shared practical lessons learned from the implementation of their award winning Academy programme.

How to build a global learning culture – Top Tips from the session:

  • Start with buy-in at the top: engage with the board continually
  • Develop meaningful relationships with IT: bound by a common cause
  • Keep it really simple: address one business problem at a time in a clear, simple way
  • Changing behaviour: be persistent, use video messaging and interviews to get the message across that you want to communicate
  • Be ready to take risks – move on if it fails

There is still enough time to complete your review and revisiting regularly can also help learning professionals to measure progress year on year, highlight areas where improvement is needed and provide evidence to build a business case for change.

We all have blind spots, why does being aware of yours add value?

We all have blind spots, why does being aware of yours add value?

When it comes to organisational culture, performance and learning, blind spots (or as they are often referred to ‘not seeing the light’) are usually found at the root of most of our problems with work today. These problems shape our day to day conversations, thinking, mood, judgement, decisions-making, or fundamental lack of them. These issues can make or break your workplace experience.

La Vie en Rose, does seeing ‘life in pink’ matter?

La Vie en Rose, does seeing ‘life in pink’ matter?

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.
