Sara Ley, Crotonville Digital Learning and Technology Leader at General Electric
This webinar took place January 18, 2017

GE is renowned for its leadership institute, Crotonville, which develops the company’s top leaders, and has earned GE the #1 world rank on Aon Hewitt Top Companies for Leaders. However, only 15% of GE employees attend a Crotonville classroom experience each year. To reach the rest its 350,000+ employees, GE has launched a series of new online learning initiatives, with thousands of learners taking part each week. In this session, we’ll share details about GE’s BrilliantYOU, a new internal marketplace for learning resources. We’ll also discuss how GE pushes the envelope of what is taught online by using the NovoEd platform to train employees in high-stakes skills such as leadership, presence, creativity, and innovation.

During this session, you’ll learn:

  • What GE’s BrilliantYou initiative is, including its purpose, goals, and lessons learned
  • Perspective on which aspects of leadership development training are most challenging to translate online
  • How NovoEd’s platform powered courses at GE enable engaging, effective learning of high-stakes skills
