I used WalkMe™…wrong??? 😳
Look, rejection is tough, but when rejection is 🤔 confusing, that makes it even harder!
When I got my rejection email about presenting at a #LearningandDevelopment conference Demo event, I was a scooch confused when they told me that my demo was using WalkMe…the wrong way...😳
I’m not someone who can’t take criticism…I used to be a theatre geek 🎭, I can take criticism, pinky swear.
But if someone tells you that you are using a tool “Wrong” when it contributed to measurable business growth 📈, maybe something is “wrong” with them...
Just a thought…🤷🏼♀️
By this definition, I hope we are all using #WalkMe “wrong”

What does a heavily animated powerpoint, 3 weeks of preparation, and a set of false eyelashes have to do with pitching to passion? 🤔
Absolutely nothing apparently! 🤭
Which is what I learned 7 words into my conversation with a Senior Leader when I had to completely pivot my prepared pitch to align with her passion and goals for our teams! 😳
I learned a valuable lesson that day:
Don't pitch YOUR passion!
👉 Pitch to your STAKEHOLDER’S passion!
📣 Align your Digital Adoption Strategy with the passion of someone who can get $*&$ done and everyone engaged!

Ryan Shiba is someone with extensive experience with both WalkMe and creating engaging learning experiences for employees and customers.
In this clip, Ryan and I discuss the pain point a lot of DAP Professionals have getting buy-in for their Digital Adoption programs when their organization’s learning department tends to opt for more traditional methods for platform training such as eLearning courses that are housed in the LMS.
Ryan’s response is incredibly noteworthy, calling attention to the fact that Adults are problem oriented learners, who learn best when completing tasks and solving problems with immediate relevance!
Digital Adoption tools are such incredible solutions that open up the world of better aligning our training and learning with how we understand that adults learn and succeed!
Ryan’s final words of advice: build relationships with those you work with, build trust with decision makers and determine where you can do better, build better efficiencies and make more of an impact!
