360Learning - Let’s get off on the right foot

Your first day of school. The starting paces of a marathon. The date that became the beginning of a lasting love story. 

Beginnings are important. After all, you’re doing your best to set the stage for success, while avoiding anything that could spell trouble later down the line. Whether it’s breaking the ice during an important meeting, setting up the right learning maturity model, or meeting your professional coach for the first time, you want to make sure you get off on the right foot.

When it comes to L&D programs, nobody knows how to lay the groundwork like David James, the host of our new masterclass series. Be sure to check out our first episode about the dangers of focusing on solutions too early, and why starting by defining real business problems will help you drive even greater impact.

Another hot tip for getting your L&D initiatives off the ground? Taking a leaf out of your peers’ book. By checking out how learning leaders like Udacity create memorable learning experiences with subject-matter experts, or how Bank and Vogue tripled their employee engagement rate, you can glean valuable insights to ensure your next initiative hits the right note from the very beginning. 

Stay tuned for more great masterclass episodes. And while you're here, don't forget to join the L&D Collective and connect with us on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter!
