    Four Best Practices to Improve Digital Learning Traffic and First-Time Manager Engagement

    As an L&D professional, you know that one of the biggest challenges in upskilling First-Time Managers using digital learning is about having users consistently access the contents and keep pace.

    Still most companies struggle to get First-Time Managers online for training purposes and many initiatives that look brilliant at the beginning never take off for lack of active users’ traffic.

    Why First-Time Managers systematically lose their grip on soft skills’ online training courses? How can you improve on traffic and engagement?

    The answers to these and other relevant questions come from extensive research done among more than 100 large corporations and from years of practical fine-tuning of winning strategies on online trainees’ engagement.

    In this webinar, you’ll learn about:

    • What First-Time Managers and trainers think about current online training engagement strategies and why they tend to fail
    • How a new disruptive methodology as digital role-play and an Authentic Scheduling can attract and maintain the user’s attention
    • Which strategies can help you to leverage First-Time Manager’ habits to help you change their (soft skills) habits

    Are you prepared for the next emergency?

    Lectures, seminars and even written examinations fail to provide an accurate assessment of how effective our written plans are or how well our teams will perform when responding to an emergency, not to mention the emerging of pandemics as a newly identified threat that must be addressed. Furthermore, the speed at which criminal tactics are deployed, in cases of active-violence scenarios, tend to leave organizations unprepared, frightened and wondering how well they would fare if faced with an event in the workplace.

    In this session, we will discuss these concerns at multiple levels and provide critical feedback. Emergency Action Plans should be implemented as early and often as possible to reduce precious time, reserve critical resources and protect the most precious assets. 

    During this session, you will learn best practices to assess and adjust procedural shortcomings (when necessary) within a documented emergency action plan, Legal Requirements for Emergency Planning & Content, Emergency Response Team Composition and Responsibilities, and a brief introduction to Emergency Action Procedures – tailored to concerns.  A dialogue around the management of pandemics will be discussed as well.  Join us!

    At the beginning of 2020, you likely had several offerings you were planning on executing in the first and second quarter, and beyond. How has the pandemic changed client requests or your planned offerings? Whether you are an internal consultant or an external consultant running your own business, the pandemic has forced organizations into digital transformation. As a result, clients are likely asking you for a different level of support. In this session, we will:

    • Review the top skills needed by businesses in 2020, noted at the beginning of the year by LinkedIn, as well as, the skills noted in several articles been posted since late April about important skills for employees in a post-pandemic world Discuss current requests you are getting from clients
    • Share ideas for pivoting effectively when new requests differ from what you were/are working on (so you can deliver what is needed now without losing current work/effort)
    • Discuss how you can or should approach clients with suggestions of topics to offer, if requests are not being made

    Join us as we discuss changes to the learning landscape because of the pandemic and how we can be adaptable, resourceful, and resilient.

    Six Best Practices for Faster First-Time Manager Upskilling 

    When designing successful leadership training programs, contents weigh less than 30% in determining whether it will be a success. The rest is about the strategy of implementation.

    We have seen too many leadership training programs fail despite the fact that they had stunning content. The reality: the content matters only when the overall implementation strategy is successful. And implementation strategies aren’t about the content.

    People are increasingly in demand for ways to learn faster and to correlate their learning with their daily activities. The days of “knowledge-transfer is the answer” are gone and if you want to make sure that your contents get digested and turned into a real and measurable performance, you need to work harder on the way you deliver it and the way you involve your trainees.

    Unfortunately, still too many programs are designed the old way and very often too little effort is devoted to working around the content by designing actionable strategies and comprehensive ways to keep trainees engaged.

    In this webinar, we cover six key best practices that you really can’t ignore if you want your training program to score among those unforgettable experiences you would like your trainees to tell home about.

    • How to implement actionable training experience

    • How to leverage smart metrics

    • How to turn top management into a great endorser

    • How to generate pieces of evidence that speak loud about the value of your program

    • And more…

    Developing First-Time Managers' Self-Awareness
    Through AI-Based Role Play

    Someone said that “self-awareness is all that matters.” That isn’t far from the truth: So many times First-Time Managers fall short in recognizing their actual performance, potential, strengths and skills.

    It’s particularly true when they need to face uncomfortable tasks such as dealing with critical conversations in the early days of their new career’s step.

    We, as human beings, are remarkably poor judges of ourselves and how we come across. It’s rare to get candid, objective feedback from colleagues, employees, and even friends and family.

    How can you, as a professional in L&D, help leaders perceive the gaps in their self-awareness? After all, isn’t that one of the most important skills they should have?

    How can you design programs that truly speed up the process of self-recognition and the path to self-awareness?

    The answers to these and other relevant questions come from extensive research involving more than 100 large corporations and from years of practical fine-tuning of winning strategies for developing long lasting self-awareness.

    In this webinar, you’ll learn about:

    • How a lack of self-awareness influences the daily performance of First-Time Managers in providing motivation and driving their reports
    • How a new disruptive methodology as digital role-play can shock First-Time Managers’ self-awareness and develop it for the long run
    • Which strategies can help you design your next training program focusing on self-awareness first

    As organizations execute their learning and development strategies, they can be so focused on ensuring content development and participation that the actual learning takes a back seat. 

    • Is data management an after-thought when you design your learning and development strategy?

    • After all, how do you know if that which you set out to implement is yielding the results you expect? 

    • Do you know what to expect with some level of precision? 

    We all know the cliche, “begin with the end in mind”. Maybe it’s cliche because it makes a lot of sense. In this presentation, you will learn some practical tips on how to leverage the power of data as you design or revamp your learning and development strategy so you can effectively implement it.  Join us!

    Not all of them will become Managers. Losing your next best people does more than hinder your productivity, disrupts current and potential leadership and reduces company morale. It also helps your competitors.

    So, developing the soft skills of your talents will keep them with you, and in turn they’ll become even more valuable assets.

    An employer who doesn’t focus on learning is going to lose with respect to performance, engagement and retention. At the same time, leadership is more and more needed (and sometimes expected) from every corner of the organization.

    Now individual contributors are just as necessary in shaping the direction of company strategy and informing company decisions as those with formal managerial roles are.

    Make sure your individual contributors are prepared to play the game and get the influence that they deserve and that the company needs. And they’ll stay with you.

    In this webinar, you’ll learn about:

    • How common it is for organizations to lack strategies about talent retention
    • How impactful a training program on leadership development for talents can be in terms of retention
    • How digital and AI-driven learning technology can talent engagement and development easier than ever

    Presenters:   Andrea Laus and Matteo Malatesta

    Andrea has 20 years experience in the industry of digital learning. For over 10 years he has designed and developed interactive simulations featuring video and AI to bring immersive and authentic digital experiences to leadership coaches worldwide.

    The costs of unresolved, unaddressed, or entrenched conflict can be measured in strong monetary and cultural impacts.  Studies show too often our engagements with conflict result in increased stress, diminished trust, and cooperation as well as significant impacts in critical thinking, productivity, and well-being. What if the conflict was not the actual challenge, but our relationship to it and the approaches we engage to resolve it?  The commitment of the Healthy Conflict Engagement Program© is to transform conflict from corrosive opposition, avoidance or aggression to collaboration, productivity, and dignity.  In this session, you will learn about practical conflict engagement skills; which will provide you an opportunity to understand how to successfully:

    • Acquire powerful, practical skills & tools for successfully navigating conflict
    • Develop best practices to engage authentically and productively within conflict situations
    • Have decreased levels of stress and increased grace & confidence during conflict engagements
    • Learn the true dynamics of conflicts and proven intervention skills
    • Leave with proven empowerment strategies that foster great trust, cooperation and meaningful connection
    • Experience confidence, freedom, and dignity while skillfully meeting the challenge of conflict engagements
