The Buzz About Social Learning

The Buzz About Social Learning | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

"Social learning—everyone’s talking about it. And if everyone’s talking about it, that means it must be fun, right? Like a party or an ice cream social? Add some sprinkles, and all your employees will be running to this mandatory training session. While social learning can be a fun, less intense approach to corporate training, it’s a serious learning strategy that can have huge results."

"In one world, effort is a bad thing. It, like failure, means you're not smart or talented. If you were, you wouldn't need effort. In the other world, effort is what makes you smart or talented.” –Carol Dweck

Give Yourself Permission to Succeed

Give Yourself Permission to Succeed | Learning At Work | Scoop.it
We all have blind spots. These are behaviors, attitudes, and perspectives that we don’t know are holding us back. We can’t see them. We can’t see how they influence interactions and relationships. Unfortunately some hold us back from achieving the level of success we want for ourselves. The influence, however, isn’t limited to just you. Your blind spots can limit a team’s success, too, especially if you continue to be sideswiped by them.


Could exploring what holds you back be as simple as giving yourself permission to succeed even with those nefarious trouble spots? On what do you need to give yourself permission? Well, read on to see what Elizabeth Saunders has to say.

3 forgotten ways to boost creativity

3 forgotten ways to boost creativity | Learning At Work | Scoop.it
Highly structured lives, busy schedules and constant communication mean that employees today have less of a propensity to be creative. We think we have to buy tools, refurnish offices, and hire consultants to help us be creative, when what we really need is a little old fashioned down time.


Ironically, the innovation that has led us to this point is what’s stopping us from continuing. We need to get back to the basics to be creative.

Facebook at Work, will this be the tool of choice to boost social learning?

Facebook at Work, will this be the tool of choice to boost social learning? | Learning At Work | Scoop.it
We’ve been learning from others since time began, however social learning over the last few years has captured the learning and development headlines. Since the rise of collaborative online tools the opportunities for very effective social learning have developed so much that companies are now embracing it, incorporating it into learning and development strategies and reaping the benefits. An excellent case study by Towards Maturity on QA, who won an eLearning award for their social and virtual learning, tells how 150 dispersed sales staff across the UK benefitted from the use of social media and the integration of virtual learning. What we know, and also we gather from this case study, is that getting staff to engage with online collaboration is not an overnight win; it takes careful planning and implementation, and time to build the online communities that become a value to staff.

Having your first “difficult” conversation

Having your first “difficult” conversation | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

Many managers have a fear of facing up to confrontation, but if you avoid conflict you’re doing both yourself and your team a disservice, says Tracey Powley

 

A survey conducted by the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR) discovered that 35% of managers would rather parachute jump for the first time than address a problem with their team at work. The same research put the cost of business conflict in Britain at over £33 billion a year.
