At the last Chief Learning & Talent Officer Board meeting, we talked about mindset – that one of the greatest challenges we face as learning leaders is to shift our mindset (and that of our workforce) to the notion of development as ongoing, as never-ending. We said we must apply learning sciences in new ways, explore cognition, and help people not just to learn and apply new skills; but to apply old skills in new realities. Heady stuff. But a real need.
So what is the new mindset and how do we enable and support it?
In her new book, Hardwired to Learn: Leveraging the Self-Sustaining Power of Lifelong Learning, one of our Board members – Teri Hart, VP, Head of Talent Development at Zurich North America – offers an answer.
Teri's session was followed by an introduction by i4cp senior research analyst Thomas Stone to an initiative he is leading in conjunction with the i4cp Workforce Planning Exchange. In short, i4cp will be creating several member-only, how-to guides providing a mix of data, lessons learned, best and next practices, and more, centered around these areas:
- Developing and maintaining skills databases/inventories
- Upskilling / Reskilling at scale
- Talent mobility and internal talent marketplaces
