Embedding learning in your team is the key to improved employee engagement, increased team performance and better organization resiliency.

How does a team culture of learning help you get sustainable results?

I help leaders build team capability by moving employee development out of the training function and into learning within the team.

Learning needs to live in the DNA of teams

We naturally look to human resources or the training and development function to provide formal training programs in our organizations. They are the champions of talent management and development. In my 25 years working in learning and development, I’ve realized that these formal programs only get us part way there.

Leaders need to take ownership of employee development and create a culture of learning. in doing so, they create higher-performing teams that are more resilient to change, more innovative and become a magnet for motivated, productive employees.

Bridging formal learning and learning culture

When considering the roles of formal training and leader-led learning, it’s helpful to think of a partially constructed bridge. The bridge represents organizational resiliency, high-performing teams, and employee engagement.

One side represents Learning and Development and formal training programs. So often, I’ve seen learning and development professionals create fantastic programs only to have them fall short. The programs fail to change behaviour and impact business results.

The other side of the bridge represents leaders and their teams. For teams to be high-performing, organizations resilient, and employees engaged at work, leaders need to take ownership of employee development and foster a learning culture. They need to Lead with Learning.

I bring my 25 years of experience helping learning professionals create and implement formal training programs and my work withe leaders and their teams to build a learning culture. I bridge the gap between formal training and learning embedded in the DNA of teams.

What I Do

I help leaders and their teams develop a learning mindset and team culture of learning.

70% of team engagement is attributable to the manager

When leaders lead with learning, they turn the ‘quiet quitters’ of today into leaders of tomorrow.

When our firm rolled out our 3 year Business Strategy my L&D team and I saw the need to create a new L&D Strategy to support our Staff and Leaders in achieving the business objectives set forth in the Business Strategy. We quickly realized we could benefit from some expert support in assessing our current state, identifying our top learning needs and defining a future state for learning at the firm. In essence we were looking for an experienced L&D professional to "join" our team and help us buildout our strategy. That's where Hannah came in. Hannah brought her expertise in needs assessment, project management and learning methodology to help us create a framework for our new L&D strategy. Hannah played a critical role as an Advisor to our team, proposed a project plan to achieve our goal, played an active part in our data collection and analysis, and most importantly helped us refine our recommendations. With Hannah's assistance we were able to create an L&D strategy that was approved and endorsed by our Senior Leadership and which we are actively engaged in implementing. If you are considering working with an experienced L&D professional consultant to help you and your organization meet your L&D needs I would strongly suggest you consider working with Hannah Brown.
