Topic: Workplace Learning Professional’s Role in Shaping Culture


  • Part 1: Tuesday, April 23, 2019 at 10:00 - 11:00 a.m. EDT

Let’s face it, the Workplace Learning Professional’s role is no longer filling training requests to fill up seats. Continuing to perform in that manner will lead to self-sabotage and eventually render it unnecessary and obsolete. The role needs to evolve to more of a trusted advisor that is seen as a value-add as opposed to a cost-center and overhead. In this 3-part series we will tackle questions the workplace learning professionals are asking:

1. What steps do I need to take to be viewed as a trusted advisor?
2. What skills are needed to make the shift to advisor?
3. How do I know if training is the right solution and what do I do when some says, “I need training"?
4. Who are the key players that I need to involve as a become a trusted advisor?

For this 3-Part Series, we’ll discuss:
