If you're looking to change up your approach to learning and development, or just seeking quick tips to focus on performance, this week's episode of The Good Practice Podcast is for you.

Author Michelle Parry-Slater joins Ross G and Owen to share insights from The Learning and Development Handbook, her new book out this February.

We discuss:

  • problems with treating face-to-face training as the 'default'
  • advice for being a 'critical friend' to your organisation
  • string theory (as a metaphor for considering organisational relationships).
