Peer Support and Mentorship For Learning Professionals
In Learning and Development groups, as in most corporate business units, leaders work hard, sometimes for many years, to reach the leadership ranks. Then suddenly, the mentors and support networks responsible for helping leaders to reach the top of their game may no longer provide the types of advice and counsel so necessary to further success.
Recognizing the need, corporate business leaders from eParamus and Timely-Text realized that peer support and mentorship could provide some relief along the lonely road of leadership. So, supported by ATD-RTA, they worked to establish two Learning Leader Roundtable groups in an effort to assist those leaders, and hopefully, serve some of their common needs.
Now open nationally, the learning roundtables meet virtually once a month. There is no agenda for the meetings as the participants discuss topics of their choice, share their experience, and learn from one another.
