Given today’s volatile, uncertain, competitive, and often ambiguous business environment, employers need to develop leader performance on a global and accelerated scale.
Leadership, in particular, requires contextualized skills, combined with practice, reflection, perspective, and honed expertise. It’s no surprise that two-thirds of organizations said more peer group collaboration and more application of leadership skills to real-world situations would improve the impact of training. The challenge is cohesion and scale.
3M extended the reach of its leader training and increased retention and application by creating a social learning program for people leaders, hosted on the NovoEd platform. 3M and NovoEd created an asynchronous program that enabled leaders to apply their learning to real-world situations, practice new skills, and reflect and report back to their learning groups. 3M got better results from social learning than from VILT, at 20% of the cost of ILT.
Join 3M’s Career & Onboarding Learning Leader, Maryann Thomas; Christina Yu, CMO of NovoEd; and Claude Werder, Senior VP and Principal HCM Analyst for Brandon Hall Group, as they discuss how organizations can reimagine leadership development on a global scale through facilitated social learning.
Discussion topics include:
- How employers are defining and monitoring the business impact of leader training
- How 3M designed and implemented its social learning solution
- How to sustain continuous learning at scale
