Learning Pool’s Hang Ten with Alma Boutin-Martinez

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 series 30, Sharon was joined by Alma Boutin-Martinez from Fielding Graduate University, live at the 2021 Association for Talent Development (ATD) conference in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Fielding collaborated with Learning Pool to develop an accelerated, one-year MA in Organization Development and Leadership (ODL). The ODL Masters program helps learners develop knowledge and skills in the fields of leadership, communications, data science, and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) to tackle the most challenging problems facing organizations today.

Alma shares how they took their learning to the next level using Learning Pool’s Stream Suite and her advice on how you can too!


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.
