How to Ask for What you Want at Work  

As L&D professionals, sometimes what we want is more funding for learning, sometimes it’s more communication about development between line managers and staff, and sometimes it’s a proactive learning culture.

How to Give & Receive Feedback 

Feedback is a crucial element of a successful learning platform launch. It is important that L&D managers not only know how to effectively give feedback to learners regarding their development but it is equally important we know how to receive feedback from employees about how they are using their organisation’s learning solution and what could make it better.  Solid knowledge in both giving and receiving feedback will also come in useful when it comes to presenting learning usage rates and ROI to stakeholders.
