[HYBRID] Leveraging 'Failure' for L&D Success

Description

Against the backdrop of today's volatile, complex working environment, learning is no longer for the here and now. It must prepare us to face the future. So, how can we transform training to meet ever-changing workforce and business needs?

"Learning by doing" and "Learning from your mistakes" are not new, and used more commonly than we may realize. Productive Failure takes these ideas further and gives them a repeatable structure with quality outcomes — the benefits while navigating pitfalls.

Join us for a panel discussion to not just explore the role of failure in learning, but also gain tips on how corporate L&D can learn to leverage on past unsuccessful experiences to quickly transform practices to achieve better results. How could it foster a resilient workforce? Discuss with experts from Zurich, Sydney and Singapore, also from the adult teaching and learning sphere on their take on ‘learning from failure’ as a pedagogical and practical approach.
