In this episode, I sit down with Heidi Kirby to analyze her former role as a senior associate experience developer (instructional designer) at Dealer Tire.
During our conversation, we dive into:
- The behaviors that she identified from her doctoral research as critical leadership skills for instructional designers;
- The importance of considering alternative interventions beyond e-learning and being open to using different tools and resources;
- How she developed a leadership program, aligning leadership competencies with organizational values and business goals;
- AND SO MUCH MORE
