One-Day Workshop

Leading a Learning Organization the Learning Paths Way


Development of people is a complex matter. Simply putting employees on training programs expecting them to come back to the workplace performing up to your standards does not work. A structured approach including all elements and measurability of development customized for the specific role the employee needs to fulfill.  The Learning Paths methodology has a strong track record in bringing the results you want. “Leading a Learning Organization the Learning Paths Way” is one of the workshops supported by the Learning Paths Methodology.

The purpose of this 1-day workshop is to show how to lead a learning organization that can consistently produce world class employee development, faster and at a lower cost.
