The Peakon Monthly February Broadcast

Employee engagement and leadership development are two sides of the same coin. The findings from your employee engagement surveys and the initiatives you devise to address them are only valuable if your managers and people leaders have the skills to interpret and implement them effectively. In this episode, Deepa, our Director of Product, and Michael, our Director of Employee Experience, highlight the importance of putting knowledge into practice, and “learning by doing”. This forms the backbone of our new feature offering, Peakon Improve, which supports managers in developing their leadership skills, ultimately helping everyone in your organisation to reach their full potential.

Part one: The limitations of existing learning & development solutions

Managers play a vital role in the engagement and retention of employees – at least 75% of the reasons for voluntary turnover are things effective leaders can influence. However, without the right guidance, it is impossible for managers to become the leader they aspire to be. In part one, Michael examines the limitations of existing learning and development solutions, such as expense, a lack of context, and time relevancy.

Part two: What is “contextual” learning?

In part two, Deepa and Michael explain how employee feedback can provide an opportunity to guide managers through contextual, personalised training, and support them in resolving real issues that they are facing. Deepa introduces Peakon Improve: our leadership development solution that provides contextual training and overcomes the time and relevancy issues faced by traditional L&D tools. We show you how the feature sits alongside your managers’ engagement data, and walk you through the various resources it provides  

Part three: Kolb’s experiential learning model

Finally, we conclude with a short lesson on L&D theory. Michael introduces Kolb’s Experiential Learning Model which argues that learning is most effective when it encourages a phase of self-reflection.
