Learning Pool’s Hang Ten with Martin Mehl

Introducing Learning Pool’s ‘Hang Ten’

We know that the impact of the recent global pandemic and the uncertainty surrounding it are putting strain across all areas of business, including Learning & Development. Thus inspiring Learning Pool’s ‘Hang Ten’ series.

This video series consists of informal five-minute chats and will give you a great opportunity to feel connected to others in the industry and gain a rare glimpse into their day-to-day lives. Sharon Claffey Kaliouby will be hosting the series and will be joined by several learning professionals to discuss how they are in general and how they’re coping with the current climate.

Series 29 was our first in-person Hang Ten!  It was recorded from this year’s ATD conference in Salt Lake City. Sharon was joined by Martin Mehl, Founder of Mentorship Academy as they both shared their excitement of being back at a face-to-face conference and seeing people’s real-life smiles. An ironic note – our first ‘face to face’ Hang Ten experienced more technical issues than our previous interviews.

Watch now as they discuss the trends that were highlighted during the conference including: ‘grit’, resilience, the value of ‘active listening’  and how to get the job done!


What is a Hang Ten?

According to the Wiki dictionary, a Hang Ten is ‘a surfing maneuver in which a surfer stands and hangs all his or her toes over the nose of the board.’ It’s a maneuver all surfers want to achieve on a longboard and requires great skill and expertise. At Learning Pool, a number of our innovative products are very water-driven, we have our LXP Stream, Waves, Rapids, and Flo. We also work with some of the most impressive client companies,  so we thought this idea fit perfectly.
