Show Notes

In this episode of the L&D Go Beyond podcast, Amit Garg – Founder and CEO of Upside Learning Solutions speaks with Laura Overton – Co-creator of Emerging Stronger and Founder of Learning Changemakers on ‘How can L&D Pivot from Learning to Performance?’

  • Shifting from learning to performance in the L&D space
  • Moving from left (optimizing training) to right (sharing responsibility) of the learning transformation curve
  • Addressing the barriers to performance
  • Working with the teams and business to drive performance
  • Thinking habits to add value to L&D
  • Embracing skill development and adopting better learning practices to be better equipped for L&D
  • Leveraging digital to enable the right tools and technology
  • Shifting toward an evidence-informed practice
