In our hectic, evolving whitewater world of work, challenges abound; but so do the opportunities. Today’s employees are expected to meet the ever-changing and fluid needs of the modern workplace with a set of collaborative and cross-functional skills. Yet many traditional Learning & Development (L&D) solutions fail to prepare this generation through “deep learning” and this mistake becomes even more costly when it comes to those in leadership roles. Employees fail to benefit from experiential learning and the unlimited growth potential that exists because organizations do not nurture this capability or create the space for employees to properly apply it.
In this Training Magazine webinar, we’ll look at shortcomings of current L&D strategies and what you can do to address them. Specifically, we’ll explore the idea of reflection as a powerful learning modality. Reflection, the process of pausing and stepping back from the regular flow of experience to digest what can be learned and carried forward, has largely been understated, misunderstood, stereotyped, and rarely emphasized within traditional L&D solutions. When you learn how to implement reflection correctly, the results can be astounding.
During the webinar, you will discover: 
  • Why traditional L&D solutions fail to produce lasting behavior change
  • How to win the talent war by optimizing your employee experience
  • How reflection can be used as a tool to dramatically improve learning and drive lasting behavior change
