Learning Pool’s Hang Ten with Jay Spach

Introducing Learning Pool’s ‘Hang Ten’

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

This brand-new video series will consist 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 a number of learning professionals to discuss how they are in general and how they’re coping with the current climate.

For series Nine, Sharon was joined by Jay Spach, Principal at Jay Spach Consulting. Their aim is to help leaders make their organization the best it can be, and part of their business model is to spend most of their time in a room full of these leaders. 

Jay explains how COVID has changed the way he works and how more and more companies are realizing that they can actually do most of this work digitally. 

Watch the video below as Jay shares that with the uncertainty around the current pandemic you always have to be open to learning! Highly digital organizations are doing really well at the moment but no one is sure what the long term consequences will be.

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.
