Corporate Learning and Development
How Forum Helps
We structure our workplace learning solutions around six well researched principles. These principles optimize our clients’ learning investments, in the classroom or on the job.
Your 6 Key Challenges That Forum Addresses
01 Link Learning to Value
How can Learning & Development balance the sometimes conflicting needs of individuals and organizations, and connect value to learning for both constituents?
02 Connect Action and Reflection
How can Learning & Development encourage senior management and the workforce to take time to reflect in an environment of extreme constraints and immense pressure to act quickly?
03 Address Learners Attitudes and Beliefs
Almost 60 years ago, learning theorist Jean Piaget showed that for learning to last, mental models must be identified, evaluated, tested, and in some case challenged.
04 Provide Both Challenge and Support
Learning is most effective in the face of challenge, but too much challenge is discouraging. How can you offset challenge with well crafted support?
05 Create Learning and Teaching Moments
Teaching gives knowledge and learning greater “stickiness:” sharing knowledge reinforces learning powerfully. How can you turn learners into teachers?
06 Design Learning Communities and Media
Based on our research and client experience, we know that learning communities help organizations capture, cultivate, and build on collective experiences.
