Episode 5:

Post-pandemic, what are the most important opportunities for learning teams?

This is probably the most important question because nothing happens if you don’t have executive support. The reality is if your executive team is driven by revenue, profit, login, subscriptions, whatever the magic metric is, you better find a way to tie your program to those metrics or you run the risk of going extinct.

Episode 3:

How do education teams keep top talent during the Great Recession and Quiet Quitting?
Every single employee wants to feel that they’re making a difference. Tie their work to the difference they’re making in their customers’ lives. Then make sure that everyone else knows what their team is accomplishing that makes a difference for customers. Become their storyteller, become their champion.
