What can kiteboarding teach us about high-performance learning strategy? As high performers such as Sir Richard Branson discovered, harnessing the forces of wind and water with the right preparation, equipment and skills can lead to excellent results. Organizations also need to equip their employees with the right knowledge, skills and tools to lead to high performance.

Join Bernie Saboe, director of performance solutions at Raytheon Professional Services, as he shares his personal insights from the extreme sport of kiteboarding as they relate to developing a high-performance learning strategy. In this kiteboarding analogy, learn how to analyze the forces of nature as they compare to market and industry trends. Explore how alignment of kite, board and athlete has a direct line of sight in achieving high performance. Reaction to rapidly changing conditions require adaptability in skills, processes and systems

All organizations are faced with variable business conditions. Just like the weather, strong winds of change affect the ability to navigate a steady course in turbulent times. Learn how to harness these forces in a proven process for developing high-performance learning strategy through Analysis, Alignment and Adaptability.

In this creative session, learning and development leaders will recognize:

  • The importance of performance analytics in analyzing the current conditions that enable high performance for        the individual, team and business success.
  • The value of a shared vision, leadership commitment and alignment to key business performance indicators.
  • How the dynamic winds of change in business and technology require the use of checkpoints and                          performance support for an adaptive learning strategy.
