ASTD’s Workforce Development Community Launches Two New Virtual Workshops-8ef465ceb0fedb5aace8258e3300fe5f81be776e2dae306c84ac4d4a080bea2b

The virtual workshop essentials series provides the timely, relevant, and convenient access to content needed to maintain a competitive advantage in today’s ever-evolving workplace. These programs are interactive learning events, not just informational webcasts.

ASTD’s Workforce Development community just launched two new workshops in this series:


Managing Remote Workforces 

Many of us are leading remote workforces but few of us have a roadmap to success. Challenges to managing remote employees are as big as the cloud itself, but there are tools and strategies that can help. We will explore, in depth, the foundation of supervising remote workforces.

At the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Identify what positions in your organization are best suited to a virtual environment and craft appropriate job descriptions.

  • Facilitate a collaborative, team-based meeting with your remote workforce using online conferencing technology.

  • Evaluate and coach your remote employee’s performance using our custom tool.

  • Develop trust-centered teams.

  • Create successful communication channels within your team by identifying the most appropriate technology.

  • Identify your personal remote management style after taking our brief assessment.

Developing an Organizational Learning Culture 


This program will explore the ways in which you can help to create the kind of culture in your organization that maximizes learning and results in continuous performance improvement. Today, managers and trainers need to think beyond the classroom. Formal training experiences no longer meet the needs of 21st-century organizations. Employees must be learning constantly in order to acquire the knowledge and skills needed to be successful in our fast-changing, digital world. Managers have a critical role to play in making this happen. You need to be able to create an organizational culture in which learning is a core value and made integral to work-life.

By the end of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the importance of a learning culture to stakeholders in their organizations.

  • Determine what barriers need to be overcome in their own organizations in order to create a learning culture.

  • Determine where the greatest leverage is for creating a learning culture in their organizations.

  • Adapt different learning interventions to their own organizations.

  • Develop a plan for creating and sustaining a learning culture.
