3 steps any company can take to kickstart career development Margaret O’Hanlon, 14 February 2018
“For those of you who keep getting stuck, here are a few DIY projects that are easy and can be influential on manager habits and ultimately employee satisfaction. They are great places to start, with HR doing some set-up work and good communications picking it up from there.”
Is the Learning & Development bubble about to burst Lizzie Rhodes James, 14 February 2018
“The L & D industry and profession is in an identity crisis. This is the time to recognise that, and take steps to change, not bury your head in the sand. Like all other parts of the business, where people and their roles are continually evolving, it feels like L & D has stuck in the frying pan of evolution. Don’t get me wrong, there are professionals and organisations who do seem to get the fact that L & D is there to support the development of high performance, productivity and prosperity, but it doesn’t seem to be the common language yet.”

What are the priorities for L&D in the modern workplace? Our survey says … Jane Hart, February 2018
I recently ran a short survey about the role of L&D in the modern workplace. In this article I want to share the results and describe what I think it shows for the priorities for L&D in the modern workplace.
The real learning at work happens not in “learning experiences” that have been designed by L&D, but as people do their daily jobs, supported by their managers.

Lifelong learning doesn’t mean lifelong studying, It means getting the most out of – and learning from – every experience at work and in life. You don’t have to study to learn.

Managers want their people to improve their productivity or performance. L&D want people to learn stuff. That’s where the mismatch is – because the latter is usually not the best way to achieve the former.

Next MWL Workshop
Next public workshop runs: 5 March – 13 April 2018
There will always be a need for the L&D department to organise training events and content- but these just need to be more relevant and appealing for appealing for today’s workforce. This 6-week online workshop will help you consider a number of ways to design a range of modern training experiences.
How to Become a Modern Professional Learner
In the modern workplace there is no longer such a thing as a job for a life – only a life of jobs – so it’s up to everyone to continuously update their knowledge, skills and productivity and become an independent modern professional learner. This resource (written by Jane Hart) contains 100 short Tasks (based around the 10 Principles of Modern Professional Learning) to help you get the most out of your work life and take control of your career.
