You've heard the saying: "The cobbler's children have no shoes." Does this apply to you and your talent development team? In this session, we'll discuss creating a learning culture on your team, and even your organization, through the approaches first introduced by Peter Senge and The Fifth Discipline. The session will provide time for reflection and personal development, approaches to embed personal mastery and organizational learning on your team, and will discuss strategies to help your team live and lead a learning culture.

You will leave this session with:

  • thoughtful insight into your personal mastery, your vision, and your contribution to a shared vision for success
  • strategies used by the American Cancer Society to create a learning culture on the talent development team and throughout the learning programs delivered to the organization
  • practical implementation ideas to create a learning culture on your team and in your organization.
