What's the #1 Difference Between Star Performers and Average Workers?

According to the Harvard Business Review, "there's little meaningful difference in the innate abilities of star performers and average workers." The primary difference, says HBR, is the use of work strategies that include networking, or social learning. When companies promote the systematic use of on-the-job networking, average workers along with the company's bottom line improve. Defining and putting in place a social learning program isn't easy. It takes technology and a plan. But Meridian Knowledge Solutions-sponsored webinar featuring e-learning and emerging technology experts Karl Kapp and Brent Schlenker will explain not only how to put a program in place but also how to jump start a social learning initiative that is floundering. You'll learn strategies and tactics for anticipating challenges and overcoming problems.

Professor Kapp is the co-author of "Learning in 3D" and author of the widely popular book "Gadgets, Games and Gizmos for Learning." Brent Schlenker is a nationally recognized technologist focused on the use of new technologies for learning and corporate training.

Meridian's one-hour webinar titled "Breaking Down Social Learning's Brick Wall" begins on Dec. 16 at 11 a.m. ET. Register today
