Webinar: Leading Through Learning in Turbulent Times
(Part 1 of 2): Leveraging a Lights On Strategy
All organizations experience turbulent times whether from high growth, rapid decline, changes in leadership, mergers, acquisitions, a scandal, economic influences and these unprecedented times with Covid-19. How can human resources, talent management and the learning and development functions leverage a leading through learning strategy to help their organizations to get back on track? That’s the question that Pris Nelson, CEO and Ed Cohen, Executive Vice President of Nelson Cohen Global Consulting will answer in this two-part series. Both are no stranger to turbulent times, having been leaders in learning and talent development for more than 40 years working with high growth companies. They have led through mergers, acquisitions, upturns and downturns including the recession of the 80’s, Y2K. the dot COM era, September 11, 2001 and the 2009 economic crisis. None of these compare to their experiences while living in India. While executives at Satyam Computer Services, Nelson and Cohen experienced an Enron-type scandal with its top leadership falsely reporting its profits they played a significant role in steadying the company in the midst of the crisis.
