When you think about it, what isn't changing? Industries, organizations, jobs, work, and even people's expectations are shifting. So it's only to be expected that learning will also adapt to meet the needs of all the change around us. This webinar will explore a broad range of topics such as:

• What the Kahn Academy could mean for corporate learning
• The role of accreditation in providing "trophies" to the next generation of learning
• Eight strategies for accelerating development of new employees as experienced employees leave the workplace
• Augmented reality and the implication for just-in-time learning
And in the spirit of social learning, YOU are the content. Bring your ideas to the table to collaborate on understanding the future of learning.

The most important benefit Millennials say they want from a new company is an opportunity for advancement and career development.

What can we do to enable careers in organizations and meet the expectations of our newest employees? We'll interactively discuss the key capabilities every employee should develop and share ideas on how Millennials can approach a DIY career.
Leaders and the success of their plans are determined in the first 100 days of their new role in an organization. The continuing high profile exits by key leaders major organizations – at all levels- make it clear that effective planning both prior to assuming a position and effective, value-based action after onboarding make all the difference in longer term success.
This highly interactive presentation focuses on improved techniques for leaders (and those who support and coach executives) to maximize success in the first 100 days and beyond. The session includes assessment methods for examining the cultural, political, team, financial and structural issues that the individual must understand and balance- quickly.

Flipped learning—courseware and recorded content serving as the initial element of a learning experience, with live virtual sessions and social and collaborative tools supplementing and enhancing the learning experience—has the potential to increase learning effectiveness, lower operational costs, and get better retention and more effective application of the learning. The model has created tremendous buzz in the education community, but is it viable for business learning? We believe that effective use of the flipped learning model can transform business learning, improve learning outcomes, and reduce operational costs. Participants in this session will examine the flipped classroom model, learn how to build one, and hear case studies of businesses that are now delivering in this new model.
In order for organizations to increase the effectiveness of their learning programs, they first have to benchmark the learning transfer and performance impact of each one. Many organizations have a number of implemented learning programs that have been in place for years, but sometimes have little-to-no evidence that they truly impact performance. The days of that scenario are numbered, as learning analytics and business impact metrics become more prevalent.
This session will include a case study showing how leveraging new learning models, including online simulations and game-based elearning, increased proficiency in critical soft skills/business skills over previously-implemented traditional learning programs.
Same skills, taught differently, resulted in improved performance.
The Competing Values Framework (CVF) provides a fully validated process to reveal the core cultural values that are motivating the employee behaviors in your organization. The CVF provides a practical approach to profiling organizational culture by measuring the relative emphasis placed on four universal values.
Join Dan Danner and Gordon Carter who will outline in this session that by employing this process, it will allow your organization to develop insights about how their underlying value system influences overall cultural behavior. The ability to “see” how underlying values influence employee behaviors allows leadership to determine how they might leverage, or shift their cultural profile to support strategic organizational initiatives.
“Awaken the Sleeping Giants” poignantly speaks to the pivotal role HR plays at this crucial time. Through a deeper understanding of the upcoming talent shortage and its future implications, HR will be compelled to claim their place at the boardroom table. It will mean partaking in company direction, strategy and equipping the corporate culture with the “Attraction Factor”. HR will have to “stand in the gap” to create a sea-change in thinking, new levels of conscious intention and developing company culture by design rather than by default.
This powerful talk is a must-attend for HR Professionals interested in their organization’s survival.
This session will provide a background on how lean thinking and tools can help safety and any HR function. Following the teachings of W. Edwards Deming, Toyota created a production system, now commonly referred to as lean production. What is not well understood is that “lean” works in any office and business, regardless of size. Whether healthcare, small enterprise, food service, or non – profit, “lean” can help improve teamwork, culture and drive continuous improvement, but only if we go back to basics and strip away the mystery that this thinking is only for the manufacturing floor. Participants in the session will gain new insight into both “how” and “why” standards should be developed.
