“The grass won’t grow any more quickly if you pull at it” says the African proverb. Nevertheless we witness everyday training programs (online or not) that nurture the illusion that you can become a “manager” in three days, or a “good” sales representative in a few online hours or even a well-organized employees in just one seminar. Professionals don’t have time anymore so let’s lock them behind a screen or in a classroom and they shall learn! This caricatured view (really?) is unfortunately not so far away from a certain reality… a reality where people’s development is seen as a kind of magical box in which individuals step in to get transformed. Based on his experience in different learning & development departments Stephan Atsou will share with you his view on what corporate learning should be in order to help organizations creating value. He will specifically address the informal learning culture and the so-called 70-20-10 model as main drivers to enhance the quality of learning.
