Episode 95: Redesigning Learning & Development with Beth Salyers

Beth Salyers, Ph.D., is the founder & CEO of Custom Learning Atelier, an alternative learning and development company for impact-driven leaders, knowledge workers, artists and their organizations. Like Prosper for Purpose, her company is a Certified B Corporation, using business as a force for good.

In this episode, I ask Beth about her role as a learning (re)designer of her field. Beth operates from a deep understanding that every experience, encounter, piece of content and structure either disrupts or reinforces the habitual. While this reality is inherently overwhelming, it also provides the abundance of variables needed to (re)design an equitable, meaningful and interconnected change in our world.

For over 20 years, Beth and her company have used neuroscience, experience design, implementation science and the social contexts of teaching and learning to educate, design and facilitate meaningful learning journeys for humans at work. Beth is Ohio born, North Carolina raised, and currently living and thriving in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Key Points

  • We are all programmed or conditioned to relate to, use, and engage with learning in a certain way.

  • Unfortunately, this way does not align with values of equity, inclusivity, stakeholder economy, human potential, and using business as a force for good.

  • CLA exists to help folks unlearn these conditionalities and redesign learning within their organization and with their external stakeholders in order to uncover the latent potential we have as humans to make the world a better place for humans and the planet.
