Staying Relevant in Talent Development:
Don't Get Left Behind
Presented by: Bernadette Costello
As talent development professionals, we give great advice. We promote continual learning and tell people to be lifelong learners. We often do not listen to our own best advice to our learners. We get caught up in the learning of others and neglect our own. The talent development field is continually growing and changing. Are you ready for the next evolution?
Use this session to get clear about where you want your learning journey to take you and create a learning map that acts as your learning GPS. You will leave the session having set a clear career journey vision and action steps identified that you can work on immediately.
