Imbedding Learning in the Executive Mind

Workplace Learning
"Trainers and training functions sometimes struggle with gaining executive mind space, being actively engaged in projects from conception, and effectively communicating the tangible benefits that ‘best fit for purpose’ learning initiatives can deliver to organisations and individuals. Gaining a voice with executives involves networking and influencing, understanding your business, and selling the story of training and education benefits. Despite our best efforts, we sometimes fail and that can come down to one thing – failing to deliver on commitments. In this presentation, strategies to imbed learning in executive mind space are considered using practical examples from Australia’s Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and personal reflections of your facilitator – Scott Jacovou-Johnson. With an emphasis on delivering on commitments, the presentation explores strategies to engage with senior managers, and enjoying the positive outcomes this produces.Take-AwaysParticipant take-aways include:*Understanding business needs and performance gaps that learning can bridge.*Engaging with learning – top down and bottom up.*Networking, making contact and engaging key decision makers – selling the solution.*Delivering on commitments – getting the basics right.-Understanding when to say ‘no’.-Setting realistic deliverables and identifying milestones.-Monitoring and providing progress updates.-Sharing learnings for future improvements.*Evaluating outcomes and communicating educational results."

Necessity is the mother of invention: scaling L&D for impact with little resource

Workplace Learning
How do L&D leaders scale a solutions across a thousand people-leaders with a small team and limited budget? How does L&D reimagine our relationships to focus on priority performance areas rather than, well, L&D?In 2017, GFG Australia acquired out of Voluntary Administration Australia’s only steel long-products manufacturer - Arrium; a company that employs over 6,000 people in Australia across 160 sites. While the organisation once had an active L&D function, what was left post VA, and what GFG inherited, was a ‘barren’ L&Dlandscape.
