Three Cheers for Our Latest Learner of the Month

They say good things come in threes, and CORE Spaces and Design seems to have proven that theory by having yet another Learner of the Month from their team – the third one in a row! We continue to be blown away by CORE’s commitment to continuous learning. 

A big congrats to Alissa McFarland, who joins her colleagues Leona Guidace and Christine Kunkel in our Learner of the Month Hall of Fame!  

We asked Alissa how she sees herself applying her newfound knowledge: 

“With the changing times in how we’re having to adapt to social selling I’ve already begun implementing the networking tips I learned for building connections on LinkedIn.” 

We also asked what her favorite part of the INDEAL U experience was: 

“I love that I’m able to navigate through the sales training topics that are relevant to me at a particular point in the sales process.” 

Now for our favorite part of this program – getting to know our Learner of the Month a little better. Enjoy!
