Learning Lessons from NRMC’s Executive Director

Melanie is an advocate for lifelong learning and professional development. Look back at some of Melanie’s articles on the topic of learning:
- Distraction & Decision Fatigue are Brain Drain for Risk Champions offers insight to enhanced decision-making
- Truth or Story? The Human Capacity for Knowledge explores the themes of collective intelligence, true comprehension, and storytelling as a learning tool
- Rebellion: How to Change Your Approach to Learning provides practical tips for learning at least a little something at every opportunity
- Ready, Mindset, Go! explains how cultivating a growth mindset can open new doors for learning and mission advancement

Learning Fail: Harassment Prevention Training Doesn’t Work!
Many organizations have recently committed to re-learning how to prevent and identify harassment in the workplace. A June 2016 EEOC report indicated that harassment training has rarely worked as a prevention tool because it’s often focused on limiting legal liability.
Get Melanie’s perspective on in her workshop, #HereToo: Workplace Harassment is Real, at our upcoming virtual conference Risk Connect. Also read Melanie’s recent article, “Workplace Harassment: An Unacceptable Risk.”
