How learning and development can help to future-proof your organisation

Dr Nanette Miner believes that many companies risk going out of business within the next fifteen years because they have failed to train people to be leaders.

She works with organisations to help them plan for the long-term, investing in their people to build business acumen and thinking skills, so once they reach leadership positions, they are in a position to guide the organisation successfully.

In this podcast, I chat with Nanette about her thinking, the learning pathways she recommends and what sits behind her big scary claims.

The AFT model: how to make online learning into an engaging experience

How many stories do you have of crappy e-learning that is designed to tick boxes rather than improve knowledge or, perish the thought, improve performance? Most e-learning packages I have done work best as anesthetics, putting me to sleep in an instant, and putting me off e-learning for life.

People not only need to know what to do and how to do it, they need to have the confidence to do it, the judgement to know when to do it, and the dedication to break old habits, overcome self-limiting beliefs, and construct new – more helpful – mental models.

Only then will we consistently see people taking the great leaps forward that we – and they – aspire to.

In this podcast, I chat to Emma Shaw, an enthusiast for L&D that’s all about mindset shifts – which also happens to be my own favourite part of the business.
