Leadership Lessons from Top Performing Learning Organizations

By Kevin Young

Discover how global L&D leaders are harnessing technology to modernize learning – and generating impressive improvements in productivity and staff engagement. Join our complimentary webinar to hear from Laura Overton, Managing Director of Towards Maturity, who will be sharing key findings and trends from the 2015-16 Towards Maturity Benchmark Report.

Meeting the Learning Challenge

There’s a clear hunger from today’s L&D leaders to respond quickly and effectively to fast changing business needs and to pursue best practice when it comes to building an effective learning strategy. But while many still struggle with engaging busy staff and gaining business ‘buy in’ for change, others are forging ahead. What’s more, they’re delivering improvements in productivity and staff engagement that others only dream of.

So what are they doing differently?

Drawing on practical insights from over 4,000 L&D leaders – and 20,000 active learners – who take part in the Towards Maturity Benchmark around the globe, this webinar explores the practical lessons we can learn from the top performing organisations and, more importantly, how to apply these.

The Towards Maturity Benchmark Study – What is it?

Now in its 12th year, the Towards Maturity Benchmark Study is an internationally recognised longitudinal study on the effective implementation of learning innovation.

Involving L&D professionals and learners from the private, public and non-profit sectors, the research continuously surveys and studies how people learn at work and uses this data to help L&D professionals improve the effectiveness and efficiency of their learning provision.

The 2015-16 Industry Benchmark Report not only provides insights on the issues that impact the design and delivery of a modernised learning strategy. It also offers a unique window into the effective practices of today’s top performing organisations.

What you’ll gain

During this complimentary 60 minute webinar, we’ll be considering what the report findings reveal when it comes to:

  • Keeping learning aligned to business needs
  • Increasing learner engagement
  • Shifting from course-centric to learner-centric programmes
  • Ensuring technology is in its rightful place
  • Building the essential skills of a forward thinking L&D team

Packed with useful ‘how to’ ideas and observations, find out what it takes to achieve organisational learning goals faster – and turn talk into action.
