The secret to leading a learning culture

Building a healthy pipeline of leaders who are able to pioneer and head learning development is easier said than done.

And while senior executives might value and know the importance of consistently developing and training employees, they might not be aware of everything they can do to help build a strong learning culture.

Belinda Liu, head of leadership, talent and learning APJ at Philips, says besides being involved in the planning and execution of training programmes with respective HR heads, sincere communication between bosses and employees will help to facilitate a learning culture.

"We need leaders to be open and honest about their own learning journeys," she says.

"Be willing to share something personal about their own development experiences, the lessons they have learned along the way, and even some of the more painful experiences when they had consciously made a choice to learn and grow."

At Employee Effectiveness 2014, Liu will expand on her thoughts about the different ways top leaders can be involved with training processes.

Join her and other senior HR practitioners as they dive into innovative methods of building the most powerful and impactful learning strategies in the region.

Employee Effectiveness 2014 takes place on 18-19 June 2014 at PARKROYAL on Beach Road in Singapore.
