Creating a Learning Culture within the State of Tennessee

Join us this Thursday at 5pm ET for the Future-Proof Workplace show!

When looking to become an employer of choice, or create a learning culture, many look to the corporate sector for innovation, assuming, wrongly, that the public sector is “behind the times.” This couldn’t be further from the truth within the State of Tennessee, which is seen as a role model for employee development.

Listen as Morag Barrett talks with Dr. Trish Holliday, Assistant Commissioner & Chief Learning Officer for the State of Tennessee, about how the state has transformed their work culture and invested in the development of more than 40,000 employees, ultimately positioning the state as a learning organization.

Tennessee was the first state in the country to establish the executive position of Chief Learning Officer (CLO), appointing Dr. Trish Holliday to this role. Trish fosters a culture that promotes engagement, encourages retention, and provides continuous learning and leadership development for all employees, ultimately positioning the state as a learning organization.

Dr. Holliday’s commitment and passion for helping professionals reach their greatest potential is rooted in her experience as an adult educator and executive coach, and her early years in full-time ministry as a missionary in Tennessee Appalachia. As a successful change agent, facilitator and storyteller, she is often asked by state leaders to undertake complex problem solving opportunities by bringing people together and helping them discover innovative solutions and develop the leaders needed to execute.

 

 

High-Stakes Leadership

Join us this Thursday at 5pm ET for the Future-Proof Workplace show!

Why are some leaders in high-stakes situations and crisis highly effective, while others disappoint, and some utterly fail? What is the difference? Why are some able to not only survive but thrive, even in tumult?

The answer is, that high-stakes leaders demonstrate three critical aspects that ensure they perform well in a crisis. The good news is that these three qualities can be strengthened, taught and honed in those who have a thirst to learn.

Listen as Dr. Linda Sharkey and Morag Barrett talk with Constance Dierickx about the insights from her new book High-Stakes Leadership, Leading Through Crisis with Courage, Judgment, and Fortitude. You’ll learn why leading is high-stakes – and why leaders who don’t know they are in high-stakes situations are at the most risk. Why courage, judgment and fortitude are the essential elements needed by leaders.

Constance specializes in working with organizations in high-stakes transitions, including mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, CEO succession, strategic change, and crisis. Her clients include AAA, AT&T, Belk, Boys and Girls Clubs of America, Cox Enterprises, DIRECTV, IBM, NextGear Capital, Olive Garden, and others. She has advised over 500 executives, on five continents in 28 industries.
