Session Focus: The Data-Driven Leader–KISS and Tell at Cigna
Case study: Cigna

Sometimes the best thing you can have in business is a big, fat KISS, as in, keep it simple, stupid. A popular phrase coined from a 1960 U.S. Navy project, the acronym has multiple iterations, but it’s meaning — don’t overcomplicate that which does not need complexity — could be a motto by which learning leaders operate.

That said, keeping things simple doesn’t mean there isn’t a lot going on behind the proverbial wizard’s curtain. Cigna’s overall learning mission has two prongs: a focus on capability building and that employees should learn with and from each other.

Karen Koocher first shared these strategies in a 2013 CLO Magazine article when she was recognized on the magazine cover as the featured story. Bala Swaminathan will give us a 2020 update and dig deeper into how Cigna is developing Data-Drive Leaders.
