LEARNING PEOPLE LOVE
Learn Interactive delivers industry-leading manager development programs focused on two key transitions in any individual's career:
Early-career promotion from individual contributor to first-time people manager ("Rising Managers")
Mid-career transition to a "manager-of-managers" role ("Emerging Leaders")
We focus in these areas for a simple reason: these two groups are the future. To invest in their development is critical to the long-term success of your organization.
OUR MISSION: HELPING FIRST-TIME MANAGERS AND NEW LEADERS SUCCEED
We’ve been working for decades with managers and leaders at some of the world's most admired companies . We have a deep understanding of the challenges they face and how to provide them with the relationships, experiences and skills they need for long-term success.
Our solutions deploy a stunningly effective mix of synchronous (live) and asynchronous (on-demand) learning technologies and collaboration tools. This means we can provide exceptional quality development at scale, reaching every manager with high-impact development opportunities.
Our "digital native" programs are designed from the ground up for virtual delivery. We believe passionately that a virtual program, done right, is in no way second best to face-to-face—and in many ways can be better.
WHO WE SERVE
Who? Individuals moving into their first people management role
Typical transition: Individual contributor to manager
Who? Individuals making the transition from management to leadership
Typical transition: Senior Manager to Director
Our ability to rapidly understand and respond to specific context means that learners know and trust that training is not generic—it's made with their specific needs in mind. Managers know and trust that their deep engagement will be rewarded with relevant knowledge that helps them succeed.
THIS IS MANAGER TRAINING REIMAGINED!
SIX WAYS TO SAY "LEARNER-CENTERED"
Learners are human beings first: to achieve results learning needs to appeal to emotions. Too often company employees look at online learning as a drudge—not something to look forward to.
They feel they're being "sheep-dipped" in one-size-fits-all experience.
We fix this. Even at scale we strive to create an experience that puts each individual learner and their needs front-and-center.
How? Our approach involves six overlapping dimensions:
CONTEXT COMES FIRST
Our content team can unlock the (often hidden) knowledge unique to your organization that can be—and needs to be—shared for transformational learning to occur.
Short, highly watchable media ("microlearning") keeps content constantly fresh, relevant and enjoyable—and tailored to your learners' specific challenges.
We believe that learning technology should, where possible, be "invisible" to the learner, embedded in the platforms and collaboration tools they use every day.
Our SMEs and facilitators are world-class experts and thought-leaders in the art and science of workplace leadership and teamwork.
ROCKING THE VIRTUAL CLASSROOM!
There's nothing "second best" about our live (synchronous) online sessions—after decades of experience we've truly mastered the art of the digital classroom.
THE HUMAN TOUCH
Our learners are human beings with unique needs and emotions; in designing high-tech solutions we never forget the infinite value of the human touch.
THE HUMAN TOUCH AT SCALE
Virtual content—both synchronous (live) and asynchronous (video / microlearning)—is central to our offering. Our programs are built to be virtual, while at the same time offering a human touch.
OUR CLIENTS AGREE: OUR PROGRAMS ARE IN NO WAY "SECOND BEST" TO TRADITIONAL FACE-TO-FACE DEVELOPMENT.
Take the video below, which is a typical example of rapid response "microlearning" asset. You'll note how the short clip is addressed to a specific group of learners. It's made specially for them! This is how we achieve both intimacy and scale.
In this particular example the program participants were Emerging Leaders at a Bay Area biotech. Craig Laviano (Chief Learning Officer, Learn Interactive) partnered with the client team to launch an enterprise-wide process to ensure that every employee experienced the value of an IDP (Individual Development Plan). This initiative was part of a broader effort to increase employee engagement.
This is just one example. Many videos of this type were circulated immediately following scheduled live sessions. In this way were were able to drive understanding and application.
The founding partners of Learn Interactive, Craig Laviano and Bruno Kavanagh, have between them decades of experience providing highly effective digital and in-person development solutions. Delighted clients include some of the world's most admired organizations.
