Work can be a whirlwind. You’re constantly moving from one thing to the next. And that’s particularly true in L&D, where there never seems to be a chance to stop, breathe and reflect on what’s happening , and plan your next steps. This session gives you that chance – and a particular approach (connect, reflect, build) that you can use today, and carry with into your work to allow you, and others, to build intention into your work and career.

Connect, reflect, build: preparing for your new future in L&D

The way we learn at work has changed fundamentally, and so has the role of L&D. Once it was enough to produce courses. No longer. The old model has changed. We have moved from producers of content to enablers of productivity – or at least that’s what we can and should be doing. But plenty of forces hold L&D back – from how others misunderstand us to the view we have of our own role.

Join Fiona McBride as she explores a new way of reflecting on L&D. Together, you’ll use her Connect-Reflect-Build approach to explore the context of your work and take a moment to consider where you are – and where you need to be.

  • Connect – with the people, knowledge and technology you need
  • Reflect – individually and collectively on where we are, and need to be
  • Build – your understanding of what’s possible, your capability for the future, and a network to support you on the way
