Succeeding as an L&D leader is all about juggling competing priorities. You have to establish strong relationships with people, curate the right resources and experiences for your teams, and above all else, articulate a learning strategy matching your company’s needs.

We started off by discussing one of LaRissa’s most important goals as an incoming L&D leader.
