I came across the article titled What's Your Learning Leader Type? at eLearning Industries and got me wondering what Learning Leader I am.

I try see myself as a bit of trailblazer as I love new technology and can see the benefits within eLearning, but then again, I fit into the game changer.

Here are the types that mentioned in the article - what type of Learning Leader are you?


As a Trailblazer, you like to leverage all that's latest and greatest. You have a vision, and you’re passionate about implementing it! The only question is…how? To satisfy that all-consuming question, you might benefit from consulting services or an analysis to capture your vision and light the way forward.

You’re probably also bored with your current workplace training. You need something sparkly and new, something that uses the latest and best technology and tools. Mobility? If you don’t have it, you should get it. Personalized training? This is 2018, after all! A visually pleasing and easy-to-use design? If it’s not appealing, you might as well not have it!

A Go-Getter

As a Go-getter, you can spin multiple plates on short timelines. You like you may also yearn for an analysis, but you’ve got deadlines, so it will have to happen fast. The solution? A rapid needs analysis may be just the ticket for you. That way, you can get your results fast and jumpstart working on your development strategy.

Do you have the number of talented people needed to develop materials in record time? You’ll need both quantity and quality to stay on top of things! You’ll also want the latest technology and tools, but not because of the flash factor. It’s all about being effective—you have no interest in progress without value.

A Game Changer

You’re a Game Changer, so when you look for consulting and analysis, you’re trying to get performance metrics, benchmarks, and success indicators. It’s all about numbers and hard data. Without it, how will you know that you’re succeeding? You like to push past great ideas to get great results.

Forget about making your training look nice or getting it done quickly. Those are nice-to-haves: you’re more concerned about ensuring it works. It needs to be focused on shaping and reinforcing real-time behaviors. You might spend a fair amount of technology and tools, but if you do, it’s because you’re looking to enhance performance and track outcomes.

A Mix Master

The beauty of being a Mix Master is that you’re open to just about anything. You combine the best strategies from multiple sources. You don’t care about the methods as long as your people get what they need from the training. Consulting and analysis? Sure, if it helps you find the best recipe for success.

Your learning assets and training programs may come in any shape or size. You just want to address all concerns, needs, and desires and make sure learners really understand the content. Any technology and tools you incorporate are aimed at integrating your approach into one cohesive experience.
