Published Jul 25, 2022, 11:00 PM

Where is L&D going? Ask vendors and they will tell you it’s heading in the direction of their product. Ask a seasoned L&D professional with a keen eye on the future of work and you get a balanced and nuanced view of the factors affecting our profession and its practitioners. In this episode, Lloyd Dean shares his experience, his view of the profession and practical steps forward.

 

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Virtual reality is a highly effective tool. Lloyd explains how using it at a nuclear power station generated an ROI of £200,000.
  • Curiosity is a key pillar of learning.
  • Chatting with people from all areas of the business, including casual chats, is a fantastic way to better understand each area of the business.
  • Improving your data analysis is a fast way to become more effective.
  • Apply established approaches that are working elsewhere to your L&D.
  • Agile is becoming increasingly popular. Why is it discussed in the podcast?
  • Gauging the readiness to change makes it easier to adopt a bespoke strategy that will make it easier to overcome resistance.
  • You must believe in the projects you are leading.
  • Be genuinely open-minded when it comes to interpreting the data and holding a mirror up to the business.

 

BEST MOMENTS

'You have to be curious and not too far away from what's going on with the business.'

'Ask what´s the golden thread of what we do for you.'

'Reflecting on your why in L&D is important.'

'Where it goes well, senior stakeholders really articulate the vision and the why.'
