Business leaders are under tremendous pressure to account for the performance of their division. This is a foreign concept for “supporting” business functions like workplace learning. These departments are not held to the same scrutiny as operational business functions. Leaders typically view supporting functions as budgetary “black holes” unable to prove direct contributions to business results. This is no longer the case. Leaders expect supporting functions to contribute to organizational objectives.

Training and development professionals fail to grasp their leader’s expectations because they don’t view workplace learning as a business function and are unable to tangibly connect learning to organizational objectives. In either case, this is a unique opportunity to make your learning initiatives relevant to the organization and avoid being perceived as an unnecessary expense.

This webinar identifies how to get your leaders to value workplace learning and how to make it a valued business partner. You will learn how to:

• Address the secrets business leaders believe about learning investments.
• Answer your leader’s questions that validate “learning” effectiveness.
• Discover how business leaders actually position learning in the workplace.
• Learn what leader’s mean when they say, "return on learning investment.” (It’s not what you think.)
