An exceptional learning culture can fuel innovation, underpin employee engagement and retention, ensure future-ready capabilities, and enable achievement of the organization's most ambitious goals. Organizations with learning-oriented cultures get better results because they make possible the kind of rapid and deep learning that leads to exceptional performance. These cultures attract agile learners who constantly expand their knowledge and skills to keep pace with a rapidly changing landscape. Despite agreement on the value of a learning culture, it can be difficult to figure out how to build and strengthen a learning culture among a remote workforce in times of change.

In this session, we'll generate actionable insights you can apply to improve your learning culture, whether within your own team, with another group, or with your organization as a whole. Leading organizations and researchers in this arena demonstrate that learning culture is built on three broad foundations: shared purpose, interpersonal connections, and deep learning mindsets. While setting those foundations may sound easy enough, the truth is that learning culture is a delicate thing. We'll look at exemplar organizations and see how they nurture their learning cultures. And we'll deep dive into the nuances of tactics that can strengthen a given learning culture and minimize what would impair it. The workshop is designed to create a community where you can share ideas and discuss issues as you develop the confidence and skills you need to build a better learning culture. Come prepared for lively conversations and activities that will help you assess a specific culture and define your action plan for improving it.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Key foundations of learning culture drawn from leading organizations and research
  • Ways to shape and foster a learning culture locally and organization-wide
  • Strategies for overcoming inhibitors of a strong learning culture
  • A learning culture analysis and planning framework (which you will complete so you have actionable take-aways)
