Communication and the Relationship to Taking Ideas to Scale An interview with Richard Newman about…
Theoretical learning is great, but leaders must apply new skills in order to really learn and excel. So, how do we stress application in a corporate setting?
Our guest is Matt Confer, the VP of Strategy and Business Development at Abilitie; a company that creates award-winning leadership programs using simulations to develop applied skills. Matt offers tips and tricks for learning, explains how virtual experience is essential in cross-generational training, and offers his three core tenets of leadership training.
We discuss the cutting-edge theories of leadership simulations; why they work, and how they bridge the gap between theory and mastery. Also, he discusses the pitfalls of relying on theory, and why application – even when the student fails a simulation! – teaches us valuable lessons.
After each quarter, Matt and his team debrief to see how the program is going. Do you check up on your diagnostics to ensure success?
