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.



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


  THOUGHT LEADERS CONTRIBUTING TO OUR COMMUNITY

Thank you for your 2017 contributions to our strong learning & talent centric community. Our recent journey has been focused on CONNECTED LEARNING for creating awesome people builders. Last month at our Chicagoland CLO/CTO/CHRO Group, Alison Cowan (Brunswick), summarized that all corporate learning solutions are either Built, Bought or Borrowed. It is noteworthy to point out that much of the 3rd-party vendor training is getting less expensive and an enormous amount of trusted lower-cost content such as TEDtalks, Coursera, HRDQ/CTM can be easily curated extending the “borrowed” framework pointed out by Alison.

Since we have transitioned Executive Learning Exchange to an invite-only community and are in the midst of planning strong 2018 programs, we welcome you introducing ELE to corporate learning leaders in your network that are making a difference.

We are working with our hosts on the following agenda topics:

Applying the Neuroscience of Learning shows us solid insight on how we can do our job better. Many of us have found that David Rock’s AGES Model, first introduced to us by Karen Kocher when leading Cigna University, works well. A 3-minute video vignette, The Neuroscience of Learning, quickly highlights what we have found in practice:

Executive Learning Exchange--CONNECT WITH GREAT MINDS

As I reflect back on 2017, two of our newest thought leaders, Jesse Pilachowski (Brady Corp) and Jesse James (Frontier) have deep experience creating next practices we are taking note of. Their relatively simple, yet impactful approaches have caught the Attention of myself and other ELE member-companies. As we are sharing ELE next practices in our virtual Learning Circle, we are learning together and Generating new innovative and disruptive HR solutions. Purposeful collaboration is a next practice we are embracing and it Emotionally solidifies Connected Learning with our strong community.

At our October Exchange hosted by McDonald’s, Jesse Pilachowski shared their approach for creating a blended, curated learning solution, The High-Performance Manager: Brady Corporation's Year-long Manager Acclimation Program, which included

  • Assembled a global cross-functional team of leaders to complete the project
  • Developed (and Curated) content completely internally to maximize ownership and return on investment
  • Leveraged internal trainers by certifying top talent leaders to deliver the ILTs
Jesse also reminded us that as L&D practitioners we all know and talk about the 70:20:10 Model—we also should walk the talk and include 70:20 components with every learning solution we create. ELE members can listen to Jesse’s insight on our website here.

Executive Learning Exchange--CONNECT WITH GREAT MINDS

At our first Curation of L&D Content (Virtual Learning Circle), Jesse James shared how his team is replacing expensive 3rd-party e-learning library with Degreed’s Pathways, low-cost curated learning and in-house developed e-learning based by customizing HRDQ Reproducible Training Library, CTM (Corporate Training Materials)—we added both of these libraries to ELE’s Talent Development Ideation Lab.

One of the next practices Frontier found is to keep online learning courses less than 15 minutes; If an online course is longer than 15 minutes, they split it into Part 1, Part 2, etc and found the completion rates have skyrocketed. Essentially their employees and managers were not able to find time to take “a long class” but now with a free 15-minute window, they can complete part of training. This further demonstrates how it makes sense to apply AGES, the Neuroscience of Learning.

Executive Learning Exchange--CONNECT WITH GREAT MINDS

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.
