T4S1 - 21st Century Learning
On the one hand organisations are desperate for more resilience, greater innovation and more agile change. On the other, L&D responds with courses aimed at individuals, focused on small, slow steps to shifting perspective and behaviours. This mismatch helps nobody and Nigel Paine is here to suggest a dramatic reframing to help us step up to what’s needed.
4 essential ways to reframe L&D now: Bigger and closer (not smaller and further away)
Nigel Paine regularly talks to companies and individuals world-wide. The gist of those conversations is not good: CEO’s and Heads of Talent are not looking to L&D for ideas about redeveloping and transforming the workforce. In an uncertain world, full of change, being proud that everyone has completed 4 online modules doesn’t cut it anymore.
The ideas Nigel presents have emerged from research. He will share examples of what organizations are doing to become more resilient in the face of uncertainty. Surely, he will argue, this is the time to refocus. Doing what we have always done simply won’t work. This will be part discussion and part presentation. Everyone will get an opportunity to think through what their priorities are at the moment, and draw on the expertise of colleagues around them in the room.
There are four crucial actions that you need to take:
- Shift the frame and thereby redefine your role
- Engage in discussions about the nature of the organization, not the programme of learning.
- Help engage the organization in sharing insights, working together on common challenges and offering help
- Create a physical and virtual climate that will facilitate these processes.
