Maybe this will help...

Hey folks 👋 this week, we're going to explore how we can build our leadership mindset as passionate learning folks and how to measure success with L&D projects in your work.

This week's main content is from a feature that the lovely folks at 360 learning did with me.

It has to be not only one of the most enjoyable interviews I've had in recent times but also one that could be most helpful to others. Hence me sharing this with you all this week in the hope it will do the same for you.

Also, not forgetting the usual dose of weird, wonderful and what I hope is helpful content from the rest of planet earth in my curated roundup.
The big thought

As promised above, this week I'm showcasing an interview with Sarah Tillet (Learning Manager, 360 Learning) and the crew at 360 Learning.

The conversations focused on two core pieces of advice I'd give to people on the skills to invest in to become a leader in the L&D field, and four things you could try out to measure L&D success.

There's a blog for fans of the written word and a full 20-minute video if you want to see some real-life humans having a conversation. Pro tip: switch the playback speed to 2x and you can digest in less than 10 minutes.

A couple of the key points covered include:

🤔 How have I got to where I am today and what skills have been vital to that journey?

➡️ The mindset that helps me keep the edge in the L&D leadership game.

💡 How I use a performance consulting approach with stakeholders to co-creating impactful products and services.

I won't hype it up any more than this otherwise my ego will get even bigger than it already is! However, I truly hope that even some of my words could help in your own work.

🤔 I enjoyed the concept of a 'learning explorer' as outlined by the wise Laura Overton (Former founder of Towards Maturity, an excellent L&D research and insights firm) in this podcast with the folks at Unleash.

It's a short and sweet episode, but full of lots of knowledge nuggets.

💡A thought-provoking round-up post from fellow L&D consultant Myles Runham on “Beyond learning tech: A conversation about tools for behaviour change”. This post covers themes of behavioural science, habit formation and the tools to support it.

One more thing...

The YouTube Shorts Experiment

I'm feeling too old for TikTok but I'm curious about the rise of even shorter-form videos.

Instead, I've decided to experiment with some shorts over on YouTube to get a better understanding of this new form of content creation. This is one of a few shorts I'm releasing on my Steal These Thoughts! YT channel.

Can less than 60 secs still inspire, inform and educate? Let's find out...

Also, do recommend any questions I can cover for you in 60 seconds too. Perhaps, we could make this a regular part of this newsletter where I share a quick answer or what's on my mind.

"Creation is a better means of self-expression than possession; it is through creating, not possessing that life is revealed."
