Neuro-Leadership and Learning:  Lessons on Creating a Learning Organization and Engaging Brains

“Set the bar low so that people are ashamed not to step over it”

Over 80% of the average North American workforce is disengaged and underproductive at work, and learning in the workplace is, on average, perceived as a cost which is one of the first budgets cut during financial downturns.  Why, and more importantly, what’s the cost of not training?

The bottom line is that training must add value to the bottom line.  It is a three-legged stool, where the seat is Relevant Content, and each of the legs are Learning, Application, and Results.  It must also take a humanistic approach that takes into account the way our brains work. 

Hear the lessons learned by a curriculum developer and employee development specialist from creating a learning organization for a Fortune 500 Company that dramatically changed market performance.  The presentation will be introduce both the elements that have to be in place for a learning organization to exist, and the leadership aspects that are absolutely necessary to engage the brains of the workforce in taking the journey.
