Table Of Contents Of The eBook

I have designed the eBook into 4 sections as shown here:

  • Section 1
    COVID-19: The impact of disruption—How should L&D teams handle the changing workplace dynamics
  • Section 2
    Leading in disruption—How can L&D teams help employees and leaders effectively react and respond to the crisis

1. COVID-19: The Impact Of Disruption—How Should L&D Teams Handle The Changing Workplace Dynamics

The section begins with the changing dynamics, the need for remote operations, and the challenges of managing teams that are working fully from home.

It addresses 2 important questions:

  1. Remote operations
    What are the issues it addresses and what challenges does it pose for L&D teams?
  2. Impact on the workplace
    Will it be dramatically different in the short term and long term?

2. Leading In Disruption—How Can L&D Teams Help Employees And Leaders Effectively React And Respond To The Crisis

This section outlines how L&D teams can effectively contribute to the business by helping employees and leaders handle the changed dynamics. It looks into 2 important perspectives:

  1. How can L&D teams support the employees to manage the changed work dynamics?
  2. How can L&D teams enable and empower leaders in disruption?

3. Dealing With Disruption—Tips And Strategies That L&D Teams Can Use

This section begins with the possible impact of COVID-19, notably:

  1. The impact of COVID-19 on the workplace. Will it lead to a changed workplace?
  2. The impact of COVID-19 on the L&D teams. What challenges are they facing and will they need to field in the near future?

It then outlines how exactly, in the midst of the crisis, they can help both the employees and businesses manage the disruption and extend the support that would enable them to handle these dynamics. The section outlines several tips and strategies that would help L&D teams in this endeavor.

4. Mitigating The Challenges Through An Effective 3-Step Action Plan

To successfully implement the strategies recommended by me, I share a simple 3-step action plan.

  • Step 1
    Invest in foundational aspects and key enablers.
  • Step 2
    Integrate tips to train remotely and enhance the training impact.
  • Step 3
    Move away from discrete training delivery and switch to an agile and dynamic learning and performance support ecosystem.

To summarize, with a global crisis of this scale, there are no easy answers to what would work. I hope my eBook, COVID-19: Survival Guide For L&D Teams Featuring Tips, Strategies, And An Action Plan To Handle The Challenge, gives you the cues that will help the L&D teams not only survive the crisis but emerge stronger. I am sure these cues will also be useful as you re-strategize to face the changed workplace dynamics—which are expected to be a key outcome of the pandemic.
