Rochelle and Glass explored several key aspects of GenAI’s impact on learning, including:

·      The importance of striking a balance between the capabilities of AI and the essential role of human expertise in the course creation process.

·      The ability of CYPHER Learning’s platform, Cypher Copilot, to generate courses using both public domain information and private data, while ensuring privacy and avoiding copyright infringement.

·      The value of GenAI for L&D departments seeking to accelerate course delivery, update content regularly and develop specialized compliance courses.

·      The future possibilities of using GenAI to construct entire learning programs and pathways, extending its application beyond individual course creation.

Watch this interview as Jen Jackson, SVP of Customer Service at Litmos, and Michael Rochelle, Chief Strategy Officer and Principal Analyst at Brandon Hall Group™, discuss the pivotal role that reskilling and upskilling plays in building the best customer experience teams.

Mar 28, 2024

The world of work has undergone massive shifts in recent decades, yet many organizations still rely on outdated leadership development approaches from the 1950s.

According to research by McKinsey, only 11% of executives strongly believe their leadership programs are successful. Similarly, estimates suggest a mere 10% of the $60 billion spent annually on leadership training generates concrete results. 

These dismal numbers stem from an overreliance on skill-based training that fails to address the increasing complexity and context-driven nature of modern leadership.

As Lori Mazan, co-founder and president of Sounding Board, explains in the latest Brandon Hall Group™ Excellence at Work podcast interview with Rachel Cooke, COO and Principal HCM Analyst at Brandon Hall Group™, leadership is just as complex and can be life and death. The whole of employee development, including leader development, is built on this training model. We still constantly talk about upskilling and reskilling, and there is a need for this. But this is only the most basic.
