ISPI Potomac Workforce 21 - are you ready?

Join us as we continue our journey to empower you to develop a more agile Workforce 21.

Are you prepared to respond to the swift and often disruptive changes in your organization or the larger environment?  When you look around do you see evidence of an agile learning mindset? Do you sometimes wonder how to empower yourself and those around you to embrace change?

Join us for an experiential workshop where we will explore high-impact strategies to enable an agile learning mindset through self-directed learning. In these turbulent times, self-directed learning is an essential leadership competency for the 21st Century. Each of us needs to be equipped to engage in self-directed, just-in-time learning to grow professionally; remain relevant as the digital workplace continues to shape the future of work; and to foster our professional networks, all while making a strong impact on organizational performance. 

By the end of the evening, you will learn high-impact, research-to-practice methods and techniques to employ self-directed learning competencies to grow your leadership capacity and to:

  • Identify the characteristic behaviors of self-directed learning
  • Use self-directed learning competencies in practice
  • Plan self-directed learning activities for formal, informal and social learning.
