leadership training programs and development professionals have spent the year injecting new energy and a fresh perspective into training programs. Cultivating a culture of learning that embraces new, innovative ideas and practices has been a strategic objective for many organizations this past year in consulting companies.
Story telling techniques and real-world experiences have captured the attention of learners by bringing life and relevance to the classroom; while mentoring and social learning have helped further connect employees with the information they need to succeed.
