About The Event

Every T&D Professional has been put into a situation where they are charged with implementing a change or fixing a process in the organization. Situations where information is always last minute or there is conflicting advice are a constant source of stress, chaos, & confusion for you & your department. Each time, you are put in a tough situation when leaders &/or departments are reluctant to share skills, knowledge, & information with you. It is even worse when they refuse to see how this behavior is a big concern for the organization as a whole. If these scenarios are familiar to you, perhaps it is time to dive deeper into why a leader or department like this can survive in your organization.

Often, it is not the leader’s fault but rather the presence & acceptance of silos & silo thinking that negatively impact your efforts to make positive organizational changes. Silos create barriers to effective communication & collaboration throughout your organization, causing a ripple of negativity. If left unchecked, these silos will taint your culture & result in behaviors that cause inconsistency, inefficiency, & isolation & stop any attempts at innovation in their path. Let’s finally take the steps to name, claim, & smash these silos before they cause more stress, damage your organizational culture, & negatively impact all your business results.

1) Learn what silos are, why they still exist & how they impact every area of your work.

2) Use the Silos Solution model to dive into the four buckets of organizational health that drive success for any L&D initiative.

3) Use each other’s real life experiences to see how silos may be negatively impacting training & change initiatives

4) Leave with immediately actionable ideas to begin naming, claiming, & clearing the silos in your organization so you can support organizational leaders with best practices.
