That’s why we thought we’d share with you this excellent article by Loren Sanders for the Training Industry website called “Creating a Culture of Mattering: 5 Ways L&D Can Help Employees Feel Valued”. Loren is a Senior Manager of Enterprise Learning and Development, and also teaches organizational communications at Lake Forest Graduate School of Management.
Loren’s interesting piece takes a deep-dive into these topics on how you can make a strong impact on your employees and their learning culture:
- Creating rubrics that support performance
- Knowing when to have conversations
- Creating frameworks for coaching conversations
- Affirming employee strengths
- Creating Meaning
“The thoughts someone has impacts 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 getting work accomplished. 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.”
