Performance Strategy Through Learning
Loren's main takeaway:
"The thoughts someone has impacted how they behave. In a learning culture, we know that behavior is what does or doesn't get results. Results drive business performance, and environments where people feel like they matter and belong are imperative to accomplishing work. Equipping front-line leaders with support tools that allow them to continue performance focus in meaningful ways helps drive colleague engagement, increases the success of learning programs, and helps colleagues feel like they matter. This is a win all around."
