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.

Dr. Trish Holliday, Chief Learning Officer for the State of Tennessee

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.

 

 

Changing how we Approach Change

Join us this Thursday at 5pm ET for the Future-Proof Workplace show, as we replay one of our favorite shows from 2017!

Change is afoot with 96% of organizations reported to be in some phase of transformation. Yet the inconvenient truth is that many of these transformation efforts fail to deliver (all) the anticipated benefits. It’s time to change how we approach change! Leaders and organizations alike need to adapt or risk becoming obsolete.
Our guest was Jesse Jacoby, founder of Emergent Consultants, and we discussed the common pitfalls of change efforts, the critical role of leaders in the change process, and how change practices can become more agile and responsive.
