Re-imagining Learning

Our love for learning is strengthened when we’re in environments that acknowledge and nurture this passion. However, most of our learning institutions focus on traditional approaches that may no longer be relevant, and we need to work towards re-imagining learning at work.

In this episode of the Business Chat Podcast, I have a lovely conversation with Steph Clarke. She helps organisations deal with hard conversations regarding learning and development. 

Before the pandemic, people’s way of learning was too traditional, classroom-based, and too instructor-led. Now, organisations are employing a more holistic approach to help their employees learn.

There are various factors that enhance the whole learning process and Steph highlights the importance of each one. If companies want to elevate employee performance, they need to establish a safe space that impacts their overall learning experience.
