Executive Learning Exchange

Our strong learning leader & talent development community, The Executive Learning ExchangeSM (ELE), started in 2002 as an internal Chicagoland Learning Leaders Conference at Baxter. Over the years we have evolved into two strong invite-only cohorts (no vendors)—one based in Chicagoland and the other in Wisconsin—of highly diverse and collaborative leaders.

We hope you can join one of the following upcoming peer-networking events: We continue to add collaboration strength with our community.


As we socialized at Reimagine Workplace Learning during 2017, many of us have already started sharing impactful stories including talent risk strategies and implications on L&D. In the next couple of days, Dirk Tussing will be sending post-sharing handouts and slides from our February sessions and April agendas with RSVP information to CLO/CTO/CHRO Groups. The journeys were both insightful and inspirational. You can take advantage of something, tried and implemented before introducing them within your organization.

If you would like to join me on Monday after work for Next Practices Collaborative Meet-up with Victor Lodato (13-MAR-2017, 5:30 -7 pm at the University Club of Chicago), please let me know. We can exchange ideas F2F over a glass of wine or sparkling water.

An example of an amazing story was with Sal Venegas sharing The Business Case for Purpose–HRB as a practice for initiating enhancing talents including activating purpose driven leadership, extending purpose into employee engagement, and building purpose into EVERYTHING LEARNING & TALENT.

Last month in Milwaukee, Suzanne Sherry shared how she reframed five questions from Steve King’s Six Conversations: A Simple Guide for Managerial Success. The resulting simple questions were extremely impactful and tailored to her organization’s culture. Without many resources, Suzanne created a new talent management program from scratch without costly infrastructure. These cultivated organically grown solutions with leadership and HR support improve business results with little impact on money or HR time.

We are looking forward to these sessions and many other future practices to share on April 11th at SC Johnson, April 12th at Aon, and May 18th at GE Healthcare. To help provide paradigm and tools around these opportunities, Kevin Martin will share Talent Risk Management and the Implications for L&D insights from i4cp research with us.

We are looking forward to reimagine and collaborate with our amazing community.

If you are a CLO/CTO Group member and interested in having your team present, please contact Dirk Tussing for more details.

Please note in 2016 we formally closed our vendor membership so we can focus on more robust experiences for heads of learning and talent development. A key part of this shift is to invite five to possibly eight solution industry thought leaders, whom provide forward-thinking talent services, as ELE Strategic Partners to replace our current vendor membership.

Since 2004, the Chicagoland Learning LeadersSM have informally gathered at McDonald’s Hamburger University for an annual one-day exchange of local thought leaders to share best practices.
