Blended learning implementations are nothing new—most organizations today continue to add web-based and virtual deliveries and support systems to their leadership development initiatives. Doing so carries a multitude of benefits, including expanding reach to geographically dispersed associates, significant savings on travel costs, and minimizing the amount of time people are off-the-job and out of the office. With all these benefits it is easy to rely too heavily on online learning capabilities, thus minimizing the ability for people to come together to learn as a group. With their Leadership Essentials Certificate Program, Wells Fargo Advisors strikes a balance between the high tech and the high touch learning experiences for their leaders.
During this session Dianna Paterline and Lynn Abernathy, executives in the Leadership Development Group at Wells Fargo Advisors, will share:
How they created and implemented a balanced blended leadership development initiative—and how they were able to get their leaders on board.
The results they saw, and how they were able to measure them.
Important lessons learned, and where they are taking their leadership development in the future (hint: virtual!).
