Learning and Talent Development professionals have often complained that they don’t have a “seat at the table”—that they are not included in critical decision-making and strategy-setting discussions. In many companies, it is a fair complaint. Too often we are treated as simply a “set of hands” who are given directives to execute, rather than being viewed as strategic business partners and contributors.
But how do we change that? Whining has not proven to be an effective strategy.
In this fast-paced and interactive webinar, Roy Pollock and Andy Jefferson of the 6Ds Company discussed how to earn your seat at the table by focusing on what business leaders want and value from talent development. Meaningful measurement, analysis, and reporting are essential. This webinar includes practical advice on what you can do to start or accelerate the process.
Watch now to learn:
- What business leaders want and value from talent development
