Event Title: Learning 2016 Session: Holistic Development That Enables
Continuous Learning

Top 3 things learned:
A. The importance of a continuous learning mindset and establishing a
development culture in close partnership with the business.

B. Driving development through work experiences, networks and relationships,
knowledge management, and formal learning.

C. A development planning process and tool that facilitates intentional
development

How to implement: The presenters really drove home the importance of
"check-in" conversations, even if they are only 5-10 minutes, to maintain
the right mindset and express the value of learning outside of the
traditional training environment. Supervisors should regularly ask staff
members "What do you have coming up? What are you excited about? What are
you nervous about? What do you need?" I will try to do this myself and
encourage managers to do the same.
