Kaplan Performance Academy to Present Free Virtual Discussion: "Leading through Learning – is L&D a tactical fixer or strategic enabler?"

·2 min read

Kaplan Performance Academy will host a free virtual discussion entitled "Leading through Learning – is L&D a tactical fixer or strategic enabler?" on October 20, 2020 at 3.30pm GMT/9.30am CST.

Hosted by "Competitive People Strategy" author Kevin Green and Kaplan Performance Academy Global Director Andrew Perkins, they will be joined by panelists Daniel Haden, Global Director, Sales training and Enablement, American Express; Dr. Andrew Temte, President and Global Head of Corporate Learning at Kaplan North America; and Fiona Leteney, Senior Analyst at Fosway Group.

"We’re beginning to emerge into a very different commercial world," said Andrew Perkins. "While learning continues to be about developing new skills and improved performance in the workplace, learning design and delivery now needs to be more agile, more personalized, and more relevant to help our people adapt and move into the new commercial landscape.

Corporate learning should support and deliver on the revised strategic direction of the enterprise, the tactical needs of the business unit, and the resulting developmental needs of the individual employee, where damaged confidence and trust need to be restored as a priority."

Corporate learning functions to be covered during the webinar include:

  • Learning as a vehicle to bring about cultural assimilation: how we do things around here;

  • Learning as a channel to communicate the organization’s priorities and ethos: who we are and what we stand for;

  • Learning as an employee brand experience: influencing the feelings an employee has about the organization;

  • Learning as a tool to encourage higher self-esteem, recognition, value, staff engagement and retention;

  • Learning as a means of realigning behind a common goal: unifying and reigniting the business in times of deep uncertainty.
