Two daunting trends—the increasing skills gap and the lack of employee engagement—are affecting the perception of learning and development (L&D) in organizations. Employees, managers, and executives are becoming increasingly disengaged from the L&D department and its offerings. It’s time to turn it around!

In this webinar you’ll learn:

  • the three primary contributors to learning disengagement
  • why the existing approaches aren’t working and may make the problem worse
  • a new approach that leverages adult learning theory to drive learning engagement
  • steps to implement personalized learning in your organization.

Cheryl Lasse is SkillDirector’s managing partner, a role she’s held since 2002. Cheryl’s goal is helping people and companies achieve their potential. She believes people are intrinsically motivated to excel, if they are given access to personalized learning and the opportunity to identify skill gaps for the job they have or the job they want. This philosophy has been embodied in the Self-Directed Learning Engine, the engine behind the ATD Career Navigator.

Cheryl has a strong background in consulting, marketing, and sales—mostly in technology companies, where training has played a chief role throughout her career. She holds bachelor degrees from Syracuse University in computer science and HR, and an MBA from the University of South Florida.
