Rapid Learning Institute co-founder and Chief Operating Officer Glenn Eckard has been chosen to receive the 2012 Philadelphia Smart CXO Award.

Organized by Philadelphia SmartCEO magazine, the honor is presented to local chief executives who “support their organization’s initiatives by supplying fresh ideas, making tough decisions and building strong talent within their companies.”

Eckard is one of 10 Philadelphia business leaders to win in the COO category. He will be profiled in the March issue of Philadelphia SmartCEO and will be among those honored at a March 14 cocktail reception at Macy’s Crystal Tea Room. The event is expected to draw over 300 local business leaders.

Collectively, the 2012 Smart CXO winners have grown their companies to over 64,000 people with combined revenues of $98.6 billion.

“I’m very proud and humbled to receive this award,” Eckard says. “I like to think it’s a testament to the entire team at RLI. I’m very fortunate to work with what I believe is the finest group of creative, sales and marketing people in the training industry. I share this honor with all of them.”

Rapid Learning Institute (RLI) provides online training and talent development tools for businesses, government agencies, nonprofits and educational institutions in the areas of sales, human resources, management, leadership and safety. RLI’s approach is founded on the idea that talent development can only be effective if managers make it a priority and follow up to ensure that learning sticks. The company’s signature five to 10 minute modules, called Quick Takes, help managers build their core competency as talent developers by giving them the tools they need to replicate in others the knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviors that drive performance.
