Leaders as Learners, Learners as Leaders

Drawing upon firsthand experiences and insights from senior practitioners, Leading the Learning Function: Tools and Techniques for Organizational Impact offers best practices, tools, techniques, and processes that successful business leaders use to develop, build, and implement their personal leadership skill sets.

The ATD Forum—a consortium for senior talent and learning practitioners to connect, collaborate, and share knowledge, best practices, and company experiences—sought to extend those accruing benefits more broadly in the profession to current and aspiring learning leaders and talent practitioners. In this book, Forum managers and book editors MJ Hall and Laleh Patel and Forum members set out to document the work learning leaders do to help themselves and others build organizational capabilities and successful results. In 26 chapters, Forum contributors—leaders in their respective organizations—offer insights and lessons about setting direction, managing processes, leading and developing people, making an impact, collaborating with stakeholders, using technology for learning, and innovating.

Growing leadership skills is a lifelong journey; gaining a portfolio of techniques others have used successfully to solve similar business challenges can provide an edge in your role as a business advisor. Leading the Learning Function is just that portfolio.

Praise for This Book
Author, The New Business of Consulting and ATD’s Foundations of Talent Development
The future of work may be uncertain, but one thing is for sure—there will always be a need for continual upskilling of the workforce and talent leaders who can achieve it with a sound strategy and tried and tested tools and techniques. This book showcases innovations for today and provides fuel for tomorrow.
New York Times #1 Bestselling Author, Triggers, Mojo, and What Got You Here Won’t Get You There
This extensive, but practical, collection of processes, practices, stories, tools, and techniques from successful practitioners in a variety of industries provides the fundamentals for enabling all learning leaders to build organizational capability that produces impactful results. Leading the Learning Function is the new go-to source for all talent professionals.
Chair, The Learning CONSORTIUM @ The MASIE Center
Learning can be natural, yet leading learning requires strategy, agility, readiness, divergence, collaboration, and leadership. Leading the Learning Function provides the tools and strategies essential for strategically driving learning in our evolving organizations.
Vice President, Learning, Walmart U.S.
What impresses me most about Leading the Learning Function is how it combines theory with practical application. As leaders, we’ve all read about what should work in L&D; it’s refreshing to read instead about what does work. This book taps into the expertise of industry leaders, packages that expertise into effective strategies and, most importantly, explores the why behind applying those strategies to your business. I’d recommend it for any leader in the rapidly changing world of L&D.
