“Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.” ― John F. Kennedy
How many training classes have you sat in and wondered....."what the hell am I doing here?" Or how about that time when the training was really great but you couldn't remember what it was about a few weeks later. Even worse, you get no personal development at all! Sadly, we've all been there (I know I have).
This week I had the great opportunity to talk with Jakob Heuser. He's an evangelist for human centered instruction and, quite frankly, a really cool guy that knows his stuff. We talk about a lot on the show about all facets of how development matters. From recruitment to retention, what you do in investing in your team makes a difference.
I know you're going to dig this episode. I got a lot from it and it's not something we've talked on the show about before so ENJOY!
More on Jakob...
Jakob Heuser (HEW-zer) has taken up the mantle of Evangelist for human-centered instruction to help businesses, start-ups and brands retain talent. His unique blend of engineering and instructional experience results in a different kind of training; it’s optimized for the LEARNER, not the instructor.
This approach is a breath of fresh air in a world overcrowded
with ebooks andgeneric leadership seminars. When surveyed by
Gallup, 87% of millennials rate “professional or career growth and
development opportunities” as the most important factor to them
in a rewarding job. Yet in that same poll, less than 15 percent of all employees surveyed had received useful training or development opportunities in the last 30 days.
Jakob is turning that knowledge into action, helping businesses invest in their team. No matter if it’s your employees or their leaders, his goal is to help you turn your talent into an advantage.
