How the Six Disciplines of Breakthrough Learning Turned Our CFO Into a Learning Champion

It is a rare occasion when the Chief Financial Officer of a large multinational company becomes the key advocate for investment in Leadership Development.  This session will outline what Emerson Electric (FORTUNE 128, a large multi-national company with 67 business units in 159 locations) did to conceive, develop, launch and sustain a standard, global leadership development training using the framework of The Six Disciplines of Breakthrough Learning.

Join Terrence to learn how Emerson created a common, global standard to achieve credible, relevant, and compelling business outcomes.  By focusing just as much on the implementation phase of the learning as the instructional phase, Emerson has seen 95% of leaders being intentional and successful in applying their newly-gained skills back to their workplace. Emerson’s Chief Financial officer conveys the importance of learning transfer to our learners in a strong “call to action” video message, saying “the value of this investment we are making in you will be determined by what you put to work, when you are back at work.  Your most important work is ahead of you.” Terrence will discuss what it takes to get that level of sponsorship.

In this session you will learn how to:

  • Get support from key stakeholders for your L&D initiatives
  • Use the 6 Ds approach to move learning programs from an event mentality to an operating sytem
  • Build equity and influence in your company by focusing on business outcomes for L&D initiatives
