  • Slides from 2022 webinar, “Future-proofing L&D: Developing the right skills”
  • 300 L&D professionals (pros) identified 39 skills they need for the future, categorized into 7 skill groups
  • L&D pros in high-performing organizations focus on slightly different skills than everyone else

L&D functions have endured so much transformation over the last few years. They've been tasked with taking on bigger, more strategic initiatives. A responsibility that begs the question: Do they have the skills to succeed?

We used our learning survey from December 2021 to answer this question where over 300 L&D pros identified 39 skills, categorized into 7 skill groups, they need to take on what's next. In the data we found L&D pros in high-performing organizations focus on slightly different skills compared to everyone else.

In this webinar, Dani Johnson from RedThread Research along with Linda Jingfang Cai from LinkedIn go through data from RedThread's report, "Future-proofing L&D: Developing the right skills" and complimentary infographic. They share their biggest insights, what surprised them, and practical stories to bring the data to life.
