What should learning and development look like given our current state as a global society? The best answer to this is, it depends. Regardless of your sector or industry, we're all pivoting to ensure that our learners receive what they need during this time as most of us have gone 100% virtual. With just weeks, I, like many of you had to transform a fully in-person leadership development program to a hybrid leadership development program with asynchronous and synchronous learning. This session seeks to share my lessons learned with you using the art of storytelling. I'll divulge my Aha moments and insights from my experience going fully virtual!
