The world of corporate learning has gotten very complicated lately.
Learning management systems,MOOCs, simulation tools, content management systems, new content providers, social profiles, collaborative learning, video sharing, mobile learning, on-demand learning, new forms of assessment, and the use of Big Data are all changing rapidly. And companies are spending more money on training (up 15% this last year), they find skills gaps more daunting than ever, and they spend more than $130 billion on training.

Is your organization ready to bridge the knowledge gaps retiring baby boomers will leave behind? Tom Gilbert, a 20th century performance expert, created a formula to measure the performance improvement potential for every worker in a specific work setting. By looking at the exemplar, Gilbert demonstrated what the variance was in terms of possible — or potential — performance. Some companies today use Gilbert’s formula. Instead of assuming the most accomplished performer is uniquely different from the lowest performer, his work reminds that differences often relate to opportunity and contingency. With proper coaching — opportunity — and consequences for increasing skills — contingency — a performer at any level of accomplishment can advance.

All of us are prone to believing our own legend—and each of us must be aware of the shadow we cast. Carl Jung described the concept of The Persona and The Shadow—our public face (show) versus the portion of ourselves we wish to hide. Just as we see when we stand close to the fire, the further we move away from the light—the longer our shadow becomes. Self-Awareness is the fire of knowledge which burns brightly in all of us. As we let our ego drive us further away from the fire, our shadow lengthens accordingly.
