Impossible No More: Effective Soft Skills Training…Totally Online
Sam Herring,
CEO, Intrepid Learning
Emily Hoffman, VP Product and Development, VitalSmarts

Thursday, 1/25 11:30a

There’s a critical need for global corporations to bridge the “skills gap” — 73% of surveyed business leaders in PricewaterhouseCoopers’ 2015 Global CEO Survey say that skill gap is a top threat to their organizations. Among the most critical are “soft skills” — interpersonal communication, fostering open dialogue, resolving disagreements, fostering teamwork, etc. — a realm of learning traditionally thought to be the exclusive domain of in-person workshops.

But it’s 2017, and both the technology and mindset shifts necessary to create effective online soft skills learning experiences have arrived.  By leveraging modern digital learning features such as video, user-generated content, discussion forums, tapping the ‘wisdom of the crowds,’ gamification, and more, progressive organizations are moving their toughest “soft skills” challenges to online learning. Today, global corporations are improving their learners’ skills to achieve targeted business outcomes, and impressive bottom-line results.  In this session, Emily Hoffman and Sam Herring will share powerful insights and best practices from the award-winning collaboration between VitalSmarts and Intrepid Learning.

In this session, you’ll learn:
– Actionable insights to help you navigate both technology and mindset shifts in online learning
– Why shifting from the classroom to online can not only be effective, but more effective for soft-skill transference
– How to leverage online learning technology to build effective communication skills, and other soft skills
– Essential next steps for making online soft-skill learning possible at your organization

Making Sure Your Onboarding Isn’t Off-Putting
with Nicole Bunselmeyer, Senior Business Development Executive, Intrepid by VitalSource
Thursday 2/1, 10:30-11:00am in Muirfield A+B

Most onboarding is just content without context, and the modern worker makes an emotional decision about whether or not this new company is a place they’ll stay within just the first few weeks of employment—that’s a pretty bad combo! But there’s an easy way to uplevel your average onboarding process to good, and then fill in the gaps to make it great. Join Nicole Bunselmeyer from the Brandon Hall Excellence Award-winning Intrepid by VitalSource to learn about the importance of curation and context in structuring onboarding journeys that start your new hires off right: by making sure they want to stay for that journey. She’ll cover how to discover what your current onboarding is missing, and share some successful models for onboarding structures with context that help employees be successful in their new organization.

Panel: Disruption in Healthcare Learning: Online Learning Experiences
Tuesday May 8 from 10-11:15am

Healthcare is constantly in flux, and the criticality is that the skill of the workforce is directly related to the quality of care. But budgets are being tightened, and the workforce is aging, so there’s a critical need to both grow the new generation and to capture the wisdom of near-retirees. Small community hospitals are becoming parts of larger networks in increasing numbers, and there are opportunities there to harness ‘the wisdom of the crowds’ and learn best practices. So how can learning make big changes in the healthcare vertical? Onboarding, leadership, and technology rollouts are all ripe for the smart application of learning technologies.

Takeaways/Key Objectives

  •  How online learning technologies and approaches can be a critical lever in solving some of the healthcare industry’s key challenges
  • Opportunities for new kinds of leadership training in the healthcare space
  • Best practices for being a disruptor from leaders at leading healthcare institutions
