This broadcast is designed especially for agency leaders and others wanting to:

  • Get the most from their agency in terms of superior employee performance
  • Improve outcomes
  • Promote and support innovation
  • Enhance their ability to manage change
  • Recruit, retain, and motivate an energized, committed workforce

Using a variety of methods—including discussions, participant and team activities, and demonstrations—the broadcast will explore learning organization principles as exemplified by the work of David Garvin, Peter Senge and others.

Is Your Organization Looking for Answers to the Following Questions?

  • How much of your learning content is tied directly to your agency objectives?
  • When do leaders in your agency engage the training department?
  • How would you describe the value of training in your agency?
  • On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being most important, how important is staff performance to agency effectiveness?



During this discussion, participants will:

  • Recognize the importance of linking training to agency outcomes
  • Identify three building blocks for creating a learning organization
  • Explore ways to realign organizations to support the link between training and agency outcomes
