As employers adjust to the ever-evolving future of work, learning is more critical to business success than ever before. But the return on an organization’s investment in learning can’t be optimized unless learning professionals become more strategic and more closely aligned with business leaders.

We will explore this important topic during a Sept. 20 webinar featuring top leaders from CommLab India, ranked among the world’s leading eLearning development companies.

Learning professionals must shed their reliance on formal learning and become strategists who leverage a wide range of options to arm the emerging workforce with the competencies needed to help the business and grow their careers.

The learning strategist of tomorrow must be proficient in strategy, leadership, interpersonal relationships and technical skills while excelling in organizational competencies ranging from performance consulting to talent structure modeling, neuroscience application and technology leadership, just to name a few. Here is the full set of professional and competencies from Brandon Hall Group’s Certified Learning Strategist program.

In the webinar, RK Prasad, CEO and co-founder of CommLab India, and the company’s chief learning architect, Howard B. Lewis, will provide solutions to the age-old quandary: how does L&D truly become a strategic business partner? You will leave with:

  • Competencies that learning professionals must embrace to provide strategic solutions to critical business problems
  • Examples of the results that are possible through strategic learning-business partnerships
  • Strategic scenarios that attendees can respond to

Learning professionals at all career stages — from entry-level instructional designers to senior leaders — must have a deep understanding of the organizations they serve and develop skills to be true partners with the business. 

Please join us Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 11 am ET. If you aren’t sure you can make it, register anyway and we will provide a recording and the webinar slides to use when it suits you.
