Learning Pool’s Hang Ten with Alan Betts

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.

For this episode, Sharon was joined by our Principal Consultant Alan Betts as he shares what he’s been getting up to. Alan talks about a Mini-MBA that he launched last year to help Learning Pool’s management team develop in their roles and then apply what they’re learning to the workplace.

Listen to how this Mini-MBA came about, the feedback from the first trial year and where to start in creating your own Mini-MBA.

 

 

 

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, we work with some of the most impressive client companies,  so we thought this idea fit perfectly.
