As many companies move towards a skills-based approach to work, individuals and organisations alike have turned to digital badging to quantify skill sets and competencies. Digital credentials allow learners to demonstrate their leadership acumen and publicly demonstrate their ongoing professional growth. Your leaders can share their digital credentials on LinkedIn and other social media platforms to showcase their learning journeys, which can help them build a network of similarly motivated professionals. By adding digital credentialing to your learning initiative, facilitators, coaches, and organisations can demonstrate their commitment to employee professional development—and have the validation of this tangible measure of the programme’s success.
Your high-potential employees constantly strive to improve their skills—with an eye on developing transferable skills that will future-proof their careers. That’s why we’ve partnered with Credly, the largest digital credentialing platform. Credly has set the industry standard for digital credentialing, creating a user-friendly platform integrated with numerous leading learning management systems, making it easy to incorporate into your existing learning programmes. Including digital credentialing or badging as part of your Blanchard leadership development programme helps you motivate learners, demonstrate the value of leadership training to employees, and increase public visibility and recognition of your company’s leadership strength.
Public recognition is a powerful motivator. When leaders complete our globally recognised courses, like SLII, they earn a digital badge that shows their leadership skills and moves with them into their next role. This visual recognition of their learning journey and documented skill sets encourages learners to commit to participating and engaging in your leadership development programme. Digital badging also has the potential to inspire learners to pursue additional training opportunities. Through the Credly platform, learners can see the adjacent skills other people with their credentials have attained, and the recommended tracks within your leadership development programme they may want to complete next.
