In the era of the Expertise Economy, an agile workforce is the most important resource any business has. We need employees who are constantly motivated and curious about learning new skills, seeking out opportunities, and putting learning resources to their best possible use. To accomplish all this, businesses need their entire staff — from the C-suite to middle management to trainers and employees at all levels— to adopt advanced, proven methods for how to learn.
In this webinar, Kelly Palmer will take a jargon-free approach to adult learning theory and discuss the latest findings from the science of learning and the related science of motivation, growth mindset, and purpose. She will break neuroscience myths and introduce the learning loop, then show you how to use practical approaches to apply these theories in the workplace.
We know so much more about the science of learning than we ever did before. Find out how you can apply these learning strategies at your company and help your employees build skills for the future.
