Not all employees are equally skilled at learning. Some can’t walk around the block without gaining new professional skills, whereas others seem to resist every attempt to reach them. At organizations that provide outdated, ineffective training, weak learners aren’t getting anything at all and elite learners are fed up with poor development opportunities.
This status quo isn’t working for anyone, but it’s about to get a lot worse for companies. Today’s improving economy means that disengaged top performers will be able to leave easily. Worse, it’ll be extremely hard to fill their open positions with Millennial talent. Instead of training your top learners to leave, develop them to stay.
In this webinar, you will learn:
-Why not all employees are equally skilled at learning—and why that needs to change
-Techniques you can use to make learning work for everyone
-How learning can help you prioritize long-term growth
-The one way to cultivate innovation and engage top performers

I’d like to take one minute to tell you all a little about The eLearning Guild, for those of you who are not familiar with us.
The eLearning Guild is the oldest and most trusted source of information, networking, and community for eLearning professionals. As a member-driven organization, The eLearning Guild produces:
conferences online events online and blended training eBooks research reports Learning Solutions Magazine and hosts a social learning platform where members can share their own work and learn from the work of others
Each of the resources the Guild produces is devoted to the idea that the people who know the most about making eLearning successful are the people who produce eLearning every day. Our goal is to create a place where eLearning professionals can share their knowledge, expertise, and ideas to build a better industry—and better learning experiences—for everyone because we believe that “together we are better.”
