Don't Just Tell - SHOW Your Impact on the Business

Session Description

Everyone in leadership is responsible for making an impact on their business. In order to make an impact, you need to be a strategic leader who makes smart data-driven decisions even if you are mired in the day-to-day tactics of the business. We will discuss WHY strategic leadership is so important in the L&D function and compare tactical with strategic leadership characteristics. We will review WHAT leaders do to show up and stay strategic. We will see HOW to be more strategic by creating a custom Impact Blueprint™ that you can use to demonstrate alignment between a learning investment/initiative and the corporate goals. We will select your smart metrics to demonstrate business impact.
