The scope and variety of available learning methods are advancing at a dizzying pace that is only likely to accelerate as pressure mounts to adjust and revitalize workplace learning. Fueled by demand from incoming “digital natives,” it’s daunting to decide among the vast range of learning methods and approaches.
HR professionals face particularly difficult choices about synchronizing complementary modalities, how to appropriately blend technology-centric and high-touch (formal training, coaching) learning, and how to apply learning back in the workplace. Although organizations want to meet the needs of all modern learners, the choices and tradeoffs are complex and becoming even more so.
Yet, the benefits of a planful approach to learner growth are staggering: we found in Global Leadership Forecast 2018 that organizations whose leaders rate the development they receive as high-quality are 8.6 times more likely to financially outperform companies providing lower-caliber growth programs to their leaders.
Join Mary Woolf from EY and Rebecca Ray from The Conference Board as they take stock of the leadership learning landscape, factoring in both actual usage and preferences of over 25,000 leaders to recommend an evidence-based path forward for learning design.
