Learning Alignment Starts with Productive Conversations

Talking to business leaders is one of the most important steps to aligning Learning with the Business. 

Prompted by genuine interest and thoughtful questions, business leaders will often quickly share their wisdom, insights, understanding of relevant data, strategic direction, and key operational goals. 

Rather than asking for a "wish list" of training needs, focus first on exploring their business goals.

Next, target a particular goal and determine the performance that has the greatest impact on achieving it.

Then, after some contemplation and design thinking, confirm learning outcomes that will improve target performance.
