NKBA Launches Comprehensive New Learning Paths Program

April 19, 2013

The National Kitchen & Bath Association is launching its new learning program, offering career paths in eight competency areas at all levels from introductory to experienced. The expanded learning and development programs encompass an entire set of career skills, such as communication, leadership and business management.

“The new Learning Paths approach focuses on a continuous process of performance improvement, rather than just taking a single course,” said Nancy Barnes, NKBA director of learning. “The paths offer a well-defined, step-by-step sequence.”

The program’s eight competencies include Design & Inspiration, Talent Management, Communication, Adapt & Innovate (Change Management), Focus on the Consumer, Business Management, Leadership and Sales & Marketing.

The Learning Path through each competency may comprise as many as 40 courses covering wide-ranging topics. For example, communication subjects could include basic business writing, email communication, presentation skills, workplace conflict, negotiation skills, networking essentials and leading team meetings. The Learning Paths are available to anyone in the industry, 24/7, 365 days a year through a Learning Management System that will be live online in mid-May. Participation is not limited to association members.
