Learning and development is no longer seen as a luxury. Forward-thinking organisations know that leadership development and capability building generally, is mission-critical in driving organisational success. We also know that learning will continue to be a critical element in driving change in organisations (see diagram : Sources: 1) McKinsey Quarterly, Why agility pays, 2015).
Yet for many organisations, ‘cracking the code’ of learning can be challenging, balancing every-day operational demands, resourcing, training costs, ensuring a return-on-investment, and ensuring learning is integrated in to learners’ roles. The answer does not lie in one particular domain, rather, it lies in a planned, structured approach to capability building. Actionable Conversations provides a key piece of the puzzle by empowering managers and leaders in the organisation to engage in meaningful conversations to create behaviour change that will ultimately drive the strategy.
