Learning Pool’s Hang Ten with Paul Anderson-Walsh

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 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 18, Sharon was joined by Head of Learning Pool’s Learning Libraries, Ryan Cooper and Paul Anderson-Walsh, CEO and co-founder of the Centre for Inclusive Leadership.

Inspired by Black History Month, but relevant all year long; Sharon wanted to catch up with Paul to discuss the work of The Centre of Inclusive Leadership and the learning modules that were created in partnership with Learning Pool.

The Uncomfortable Truth and Conversation modules were inspired by the activities over the last 12 months around the world of racial inequality. In this Hang Ten, they discuss why this training is needed and how businesses can do more to foster inclusiveness.

Coming up to the anniversary of George Floyd’s death, this brought up the question, was this seismic event a ‘milestone’ or in fact a ‘millstone’?  Was this a change that didn’t actually bring any change? If so, then have we lost a significant moment to make a change? Find out more in the video below and let us know your thoughts.


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.
