ATDps Informal Learning in the Purpose Economy Interest Group
Note the change in date
Walking the Talk
Most organizations have crafted core values. Many do a good job of popularizing them internally and externally. But very few actually live up to their values in all that they do. Join us to brainstorm how as learning professionals we can embed ways to live values across the employee life-cycle, from how we hire, onboard to how we provide feedback and manage performance. Plus, you'll have an opportunity to see a demo of a training platform that addresses this need.
This new ATDps Interest Group intends to form a “center of gravity” for ideas, research, best practices, and prototyping as we strategize a way forward for talent development in what entrepreneur and thought leader Aaron Hurst calls the Purpose Economy. Like the information economy, which has been driven by innovation and economic growth up to now, the emerging Purpose Economy is driven by the power of connecting people to their life purpose. The dynamic, self-organizing nature of the purpose-driven workplace makes informal learning the natural approach/methodology for developing individuals, teams, groups, and organizations as we move into this exciting new future!
Anyone who wants to join us as we explore this uncharted learning & development territory is welcome!
