How to champion best practice Learning and Development when the culture is content with chalk and talk

Quite a while ago, I received a mail from a listener asking the following questions:

I guess many of your audience are freelance so it would be an interesting topic to discuss how they learn from or get community feeling when working alone.

How do you trust your own internal feedback when all your clients think you’re great (but you only have a happy sheet).

In an organisation how do you champion best practice when the culture is content with chalk and talk?

We recorded something that touches on the first part of this with Claire Simmons (called “Training can be a tough and lonely business, so look after yourself“) but I thought we could dig deeper and so I asked Paul Tizzard, someone who has worked as both an internal and external consultant, to have a crack at providing some sage advice.
