Helping Learning Leaders Grow

Please review our FAQs and if you still have questions, send us a quick message.

The Executive Learning Exchange (ELE) embraces learning together about practical strategies and next practices.

We find the best ways to develop talent by connecting, collaborating and contributing to stay relevant and in pace with the speed of today’s business climate.

Using purposeful collaboration frameworks, our members engage with community-sourced solutions that help increase the impact of their work culture goals.

By connecting with forward-thinking, cross-functional learning and talent development leaders, we co-create and curate best and next practices.

ELE is more than an annual conference. Our Contributing Members produce over 100 Insights and over 50 Face-to-Face in-person and live Events annually. Have a question and need help now, the Idea Exchange Q&A forum is a powerful resource.

Given time is precious for senior leaders and their teams, our invite-only community is not opened to vendors. Rather we selectively invite a few exclusive strategic partners to provide research-driven experience and insights.

As many lean organizations seek better ways to optimize limited budget dollars & experienced from knowledgeable experts, our membership model is based on current senior ELE members (Heads of Learning, Talent and HR functions) inviting colleagues in their networks. Typically invitations are extended to peers outside their organizations and direct reports/ members on their team.

“Your business and career will benefit if you strategically pursue the smartest of today’s ideas”5 Trends to Ride by Fortune March 2017.
ELE embraces two of these five trends for our invite-only cohorts:

• Join a Learning Circle—most of us absorb far more when seated in a circle of peers that are studying the same thing.
• Mix with the Best—surrounding yourself with great minds is critical if you want to raise your game.

ELE membership is not available to independent practitioners, consultants, students, or solution providers.

In 2016 we formally closed our vendor membership to focus on more robust experiences for heads of learning and talent development. A vital part of this shift is to invite a few solution industry thought leaders, who provide forward-thinking talent services, as ELE Strategic Partners to replace the closed vendor membership.

If you don’t have an ELE account and your manager does not have an Team Leader subscription, you need a referral code from an authorized Contributing  Member to join. Look for Active Influencers you are a trusted colleague and request an invite from them.

“ELE is unlike any other professional organization I’ve been involved with. It’s not focused on selling you vendor products or recycling outdated learning concepts. It’s dedicated to fostering collaboration between and sharing next practices amongst great learning leaders, which enables us to take learning and talent in our organizations from good to great.”

“We are all more effective with a network of resources behind us. ELE has given me, my team and our organization the benefit of experience and insights from great learning and development thought leaders in our city and from across the country. The Chief Learning Officer meetings and the annual conferences provide excellent opportunities to build relationships with peers across organizations, brainstorm together to tackle common problems and share resources and experiences. The ongoing events make it easy to stay connected and up to speed on the changes in our field.”

Many in our discipline recognize L&D need  new set of skills and capabilities.

“Our job is to understand what employees jobs are, learn about the latest tools and techniques to drive learning and performance, and then apply them to work in a modern, relevant, and cost-effective way.”  – Josh Bersin

Josh and others think corporate learning leaders require new set of skills, capabilities, and thought processes in HR and L&D. Your team now needs to focus on “experience design,” “design thinking,” the development of “employee journey maps,” and much more experimental, data-driven, solutions in the flow of work.

The following testimony sums up what many are saying:

“The depth and breadth of Executive Learning Exchange makes this relationship a no brainer. Whether you need help brain storming or solving a specific problem, the answer is in the network and has always come with a quick relevant response.” – Anna Manikas
