Executive Learning Exchange (ELE)

The Executive Learning Exchange (ELE) is a consortium of senior Chicagoland, Milwaukee and Midwest learning/talent development leaders who are committed to promoting advanced practices that improve evidenced-based business results and professional opportunities among its members.

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


Last month we had a powerful collaboration at the 5th Annual SE-WI Learning & Talent Development Leaders Exchange @ Harley-Davidson Museum® and we have posted Video, audio recordings, handouts and PDF copies of the slides on our website in the members-only area--please click “Members” in the top menu on our home page to access.

If you attended our in-person May 2015 Exchange, the robust day was kicked off by Kevin Martin (i4cp) and Aaron Olson (Aon). Dr. Natalie King (Liautaud Institute) and Bob Cancalosi (GE Crotonville) complemented each others' insights with what talent development should learn from neuroscience.

Later when Bob Cancalosi @ GE Crotonville presented Attributes of World Class Leaders, he shared how Aon Hewitt summarized Fortune magazine definition for World Class Leader in their Global Top Companies for Leaders study (research from 2,000 organizations)--—3 hottest trends: Engaging Leadership, Resilience & Self-awareness.

As an extra gift, thanks to EBSCO, you can click here for several Business Book Summaries that Bob Cancalosi’s referenced in his keynote presentation, Attributes of World Class Leadership Capability--all great insights creating high impact for Executive Learning Exchange’s powerful network of learning and talent development leaders.

MARK OCT 26, 2015 IN YOUR CALENDAR for the 14th Annual Chicagoland Learning Leaders Exchange at McDonald's Hamburger University (Oak Brook, IL).

As we finish planning our 2015 programs, please submit your input on content, venues, presenters and peer-group to A few of our current thoughts include formally closing our Vendor ELE Membership in 2016 and experimenting with more experimental learning opportunities for our CLO/CTO audience.

Senior CLO/CTO can help us on August 3rd by getting out of the office and into the Wisconsin outdoors for a special Chief Learning & Talent Officer Experiential Learning Leadership Retreat at the exclusive Kohler Learning Center. We will explore key emerging trends such as Gender Intelligence & Mindfulness/Self-Awareness, as well as the most recent Next Practices in learning and talent.
