Workshop: Performance Consulting

Andrew Jacobs, Learning Principle at Llarn

What is performance consulting? In simple terms, it means working with different parts of an organisation to make them better at what they do, analysing challenges and supporting the right solutions. After creating The little book of Performance Consulting for us, Andrew joined us to talk in more detail about the methodology discussed and guided us through one of the exercises to get you started.

Workshop: Self-directed learning – L&D’s holy grail?
Megan Corker, Learning and OD Manager at NHS

Organisations sometimes try to implement self-directed learning offerings for their people, but they make the mistake of expecting their colleagues to understand their own learning needs and what they need to do in order to develop with more autonomy over their learning. In this session we talked about how to transition from being a ‘telling’ organisation to being a ‘thinking’ organisation, and how to take your people with you.
