10:55 AM Avoiding the “One-Hit Wonder” - Learning Initiatives That Really Stick

We’ve all been there … leaving another “transformation” development session with a workbook full of insights, epiphanies, and action items, only to return to work with those all too familiar behaviours anxiously awaiting our return. After a few days, our motivation fades, and we find ourselves back in our old patterns with no transformational actions taken. In this session, Wesley will share with you the timing, tools, and the strategies he used to shift an entire organizational culture. The long-term results have been significantly higher engagement scores and dramatically reduced turnover, while generating higher productivity and profitable growth. 

What you will take away from this session:

•A clear understanding of the groundwork that needs to be laid before launching a learning strategy
•How to get ‘buy-in’ from your key stakeholders and executive leadership team 
•Detailed sustainment plan to reinforce learning
•Examples of strategies and key success factors to drive lasting change in your organization
•Examples of how to measure the ROI of your learning initiatives 


11:05 AM Closing Q&A Panel — Join our Keynote Speakers from Day 1, 2 and 3 as they take questions from the audience on their presentation topic.
