Learning Uncut is about real conversations around real learning solutions and real experiences with real advice from real people.

We’re all about keeping it “real.”

Here’s an overview of our approach:

Strategy and tactics. We want to unpack the strategy and how-to’s of creating great learning solutions, frameworks and teams.

CONVERSATIONS, NOT SCRIPTED DISCUSSION
Our podcasts are professional but not so edited and polished that they lose their authenticity. We want our audience to hear real people having real conversations and sharing real examples and advice.

PROGRESSIVE
We want to showcase the “unsung L&D heroes” out there doing great work, being brave and trying new things.

PRACTICAL
We invite our guests to share tips and strategies to help listeners take their solutions to the next level. We aim to provide actionable takeaways for our listeners through show notes, links and downloads wherever possible.

    Supporting Work Teams – Katrina Moss

    Katrina Moss from Shopify updates on the embedding of growth mindset in practices across the organisation, including as a key foundation for learning. One exciting new development in the work of L&D at Shopify is to support the effectiveness of work teams. The organisation is now digital by design, with teams spending very little time physically together. They are being very deliberate in ensuring that teams have a small number of well designed gatherings each year that build trust, connection and overall team effectiveness. Katrina walks us through how this body of work has built and the three-tier service offering from L&D to support work teams.

    105: Coaching at Kathmandu – Kelly Hopkins

    Kelly Hopkins joins us from Kathmandu to discuss how his small L&D team has taken big strides to support learning for their workforce of 1,800 people, many of whom are frontline staff in retail outlets. The most important element of their learning strategy is coaching, which they’ve enabled not only with technology but also with smart analog resources that are easy and effective to use in their retail workplace. Kelly describes what learning looked like when he joined the organisation almost seven years ago and how they’ve patiently and consistently built and embedded coaching into work.
