FOUNDRY 45s – S03E11 – Christopher Lind


Learning Sharks

Hi, welcome to Foundry 45s, where we give you 45 seconds of insights from training leaders around the world. Today we’re very excited to have Christopher Lind of Learning Sharks and GE. Hey, Christopher! Is traditional L&D dead, and if not, should it be?

So, I think it’s a good question, and I think it’s one that I would almost reframe and say: Traditional L&D assumes that there was a way we were doing it, and now it’s changed. And what I would say is – I don’t think traditional L&D is dead because if you actually go back to what L&D is really all about, it shouldn’t be dead. I think it should progress. If anything, I think we should take the best of what traditional L&D was and bring it to life. Then, amplify it with what we have moving forward. So I don’t think we should kill it. I think we should actually resurrect what we had and then put to rest the things that shouldn’t have been there anyway.
