Mike Simmons joins #IDIODC.

The Organization Enablement movement is coming. But what is it? And how does this impact our role in corporate training, learning and development?

Since corporate culture starts at the top, here's a few questions to ask yourself.

How are you facilitating growth in your organization?

Do you define growth based on revenue? Or maybe it's based on the number of people in your organization.

What if you defined it based on how your people are growing? Growth in fulfillment. Growth in satisfaction. Growth in impact.

And what if you could enable, facilitate, create, and develop this growth?

Mike Simmons joined us to answer these questions and help your organization begin to make the transition. The discussion helped us start the conversation and understand how organization enablement happens at the intersection of people, process, and technology. With a design oriented, customer driven approach, you can align process tools, so that your team thrives, customers thrive, and your business thrives.

If the concept of Organization Enablement is new to you, then this episode is perfect for you.
