1:15 PM The Role of L&D In Driving Cultural Transformation While Training 9000 Leaders of People & 70,000 Employees Along the Way
Ask a handful of learning practitioners what their top challenges are, and most will say, “Building a Learning Culture Within a Company!” And each will have a differing opinion about just what a “learning culture” looks like. However, at its root, a learning culture has little to do with training programs offered, or the mix of virtual classroom and live instruction. At MGM Resorts International®, building a learning culture means supporting the learning embedded in each moment, about establishing the intention to learn in every interaction, every relationship and every chance to lead. Throughout their journey, they focused on setting clear expectations with leaders on their role in driving this process and establishing that leadership is a choice. As a result of their change through leadership summit sessions across the company, they have trained 9000 leaders and 70,000 employees along the way. This discussion will suggest a way into building a new organizational culture that drives transformation and starts from inside how we each learn and work.
