To succeed do you need college? Or an L&D organization either?

With the recent news of LinkedIn’s purchase of Lynda.com I thought back to a recent discussion I had focused on the future leaning organization and the transformational model of learning. Stretch you say? Here is where I see an interesting future for workers of all ages and challenge college’s (with their associated costs/debt) and learning … Continue reading

Learn to ski (and perform) fearlessly in the workplace!

So (you ask) where is the connection between learning, performance improvement and snow skiing? Terrain-based learning may offer L&D some new ways to handle challenging training situations.

Education costs are rising, student debt is overwhelming, and more people are questioning the value of education.

Participants will be asked to incorporate these “big ideas” into their collaboration”.  I really think there is one big idea that has at … Continue reading

Learning is a muscle – so what is your 2012 exercise resolution?

Learning is a process; it enhances a person’s capacity to do something.  “Learning is about building the capability to create that which you previously couldn’t create.  It’s ultimately related to action, which information is not” (Senge, 2006, p.191).  As I look to the New Year, I ponder what I can do to build capacity in … Continue reading
