HCMx Radio 137: Salesforce 2020

Guest: Gayle Beebe, Director of Learning in Leadership Development at Salesforce

Gayle Beebe has been in the learning and development community for more than 20 years and currently serves as Director of Learning in Leadership Development at Salesforce. The journey to corporate learning was not a traditional one, having received her undergraduate degree in Music Education, and then spending 12 years as a middle/high school band director. While completing her master’s degree in Instructional Design, Gayle relocated with her family to the Indianapolis area which provided the opportunity to move into corporate learning. In her current role, Gayle focuses on leadership development at all levels in the Technology, Marketing & Products organization of Salesforce, including executive leadership workshops, women’s leadership and new-manager development.

Topics and questions include:

  • What’s changed about learning in 2020
  • How Salesforce cope will manage through these changes
  • Self-awareness, emotional intelligence and leadership readiness
  • The importance of cross-functionality
  • Virtual training and supporting remote employee
  • Aha moments and how relationships aid career development
  • Inclusion and equality in tech industries
  • Challenges of inclusion for remote workers
  • Insights from Gayle’s life and career
  • And more!
