Join Chris online at the Bersin Academy for the 'Agile Learning Organisation' Program staring August 21st
These are complex times to be in the business of learning. Organizations are under constant pressure to grow in directions that are, at times, counter intuitive; more agile, but also more globally aligned; more innovative, but still familiar and stable to our long-term customers. The key to survival is the ability to constantly learn and grow—as individuals, teams, and organizations. This five week online program challenges us to think differently, to learn new approaches, and to re-imagine the power and purpose of learning more broadly. You will study at your own pace along with a virtual cohort of 30 - 50 other leaders over 5 weeks, addressing topics such as; -
- The new L&D,
- Learning From Experience,
- Learning from Each Other,
- Learning by Design,
- and Learning Continuously.
The program is staring August 21st is staggeringly inexpensive and you'll rub shoulders with some amazing thought leaders and practitioners.
Hope to see you there.
