Channel the Power of Learning to Improve Performance

Eric Hoffer’s famous quote, ‘In times of drastic change, it is the learners who inherit the future.  The learned usually find themselves beautifully equipped to live in a world that no longer exists’, has never before, in these turbulent times, been more apt.  However, learning on its’ own is not enough, individuals and teams need to be able to ensure that learning actually then impacts on performance. Otherwise learning will remain a ‘nice to have’ rather than an imperative.  
Mark’s session will explore the key foundations for effective learning in organisations, as well as practical strategies to ensure that it impacts on performance over time.
