Learning Pool’s Hang Ten with Becca Rightmyer

Introducing Learning Pool’s ‘Hang Ten’

We know that the impact of the recent global pandemic and the uncertainty surrounding it are putting strain on 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.

Sharon was joined by Becca Rightmyer, Sales Training Program Manager at Valvoline, where she talks about how she is almost feeling back to ‘normal’ following the COVID-19 pandemic. She considers the resurgence of instructor-led training and being able to travel more freely again.

During this Hang Ten, they discuss how there’s been a shift in the industry and how the modalities of learning will now be different. One example was Tik Tok learning, which we spoke about in our last hang ten.

Becca also shares her predictions on where the industry is headed in 2023, including an increase in social learning, the need to connect will be even greater as there will be an increase in soft skills, reskilling & upskilling. Most importantly – learning (online or in person) will be more intentional.

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.
