It sounds counterintuitive, doesn’t it? Yet, building failure into the learning experience can help workers achieve positive solutions faster rather than finding the perfect answer.
In our increasingly complex VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity) workplace we are finding it almost impossible to control the multitude of variables and being able to respond more to customer matters in a timely manner. In the training world, we also need to respond by creating experiences where failure is a component of the process, where we facilitate conversations around the culture of experimentation and acceptance and developing support systems to continue the learning as employees perform their work.
In this one-hour webinar you will:
1.    Describe how the process of rapid iterative experimentation can create new learning pathways
2.    Explore 3 ways to moderate and facilitate conversations that support failing forward
3.    Examine how technology can support training & learning in the workplace
