Today I had an interesting conversation with a woman who had spent years in corporate America at a huge company. She talked about how committed the company was to her professional development and growth and when I asked what they did that made her say that, she said that each person received a professional growth plan that listed their path to promotion and itemized a list of courses/training that they could take online. Individually.
Sadly this is the norm for a lot of companies. Learning, growth and development doesn't occur in a vacuum. Yes, we have wonderful technology that allows us to have access to a myriad of courses and vast amounts of information at our fingertips with just a click of a button. But we can't overlook one of the most important aspects of learning--connection. Tune in as Keisha A Rivers provides 5 Indicators that you need to look for to determine what a Commitment to Growth REALLY looks like.
