Why Finland is a Fictional Wonderland

Why Finland is a Fictional Wonderland | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
In many ways the Finns are a magical people, and it’s easy to see why they were the inspiration for Tolkien’s elves (my wife even has the pointed ears). For a start, it’s only in the last one hundred and fifty years or so they’ve properly moved out of the forest, and they still seem totally at home chillin’ in the wilderness. This independence has produced the characteristic they’re most proud. Called Sisu, it loosely translates as strength of will or acting rationally in the face of adversity. It’s a bit like having a stiff upper lip in minus twenty-five. Imagine waking up to find your car buried in snow, every single day, and digging it out without so much as a “bloody hell”.

"Mobile Learning Technology has opened up a whole gamut of options to extend the learning blend. No longer do employees have to rely solely on the usual means of training – be it ILT or e-learning. So much so, that even in organizations which have not yet adopted mobile learning, employees are using their smartphones to informally pull whatever information they can at the time of immediate need. Be it preparing for an interview or gathering the relevant statistics on the way to a meeting, mobiles have become tools of providing ubiquitous support, especially for accessing bite-sized information."
