Every crisis is an opportunity

As Winston Churchill once said, “Never let a good crisis go to waste.” 

Now, you can interpret this in plenty of different ways. On the one hand, this could be a cynical statement about using confusion as a cover to get things done. On the other hand, maybe the occasional emergency is the only way we can ever break free from the status quo.

No matter how you choose to interpret these words, one thing is clear: a lot of change, both good and bad, can come out of a crisis. As L&D leaders, it’s up to you to turn every crisis to your advantage.

You might use the COVID-19 pandemic and the shift to hybrid work as a chance to overhaul your onboarding programs and say goodbye to outdated learning practices. Or, you might use Collaborative Learning techniques to fight the current employee disengagement crisis.  

This way, you can help every single member of your team define their career aspirations and pursue them to their heart’s content. You’ll also be able to apply new developments in mobile learning to your advantage and offer learners more flexibility, convenience, and choice.

This week, we’ve got plenty of tips and suggestions for how you can make the best out of challenging circumstances. So, get reading, and be prepared!
