Barry Deutsch's curator insight, January 13, 2013 6:47 PM

This blog post does a great job laying out the justification for why you as a CEO should begin to put your proverbial toe in the water around getting social.


Are you still standing in the shadows watching what your peers are doing, waiting for some amazing story that "forces" you to go social, or are you going to be proactive in leading your fellow CEOs and competitors in getting social?

5 Ways Social Learning Communities Transform Culture and Leadership - Forbes

5 Ways Social Learning Communities Transform Culture and Leadership - Forbes | The Social Network Times | Scoop.it

Community, more than any other factor, will transform the role of leaders and influence the development of workplace culture. The power of online learning communities is more visible in lean-running start-ups where skills must shift quickly, but I think their effect will be more profound in established companies on a global scale.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, January 5, 2013 11:54 AM

"Online learning social communities exist which cater to all learning styles, all skill sets and personalities, native abilities and educational needs.

 

Available to employees on-demand as well as via mobile devices and tablets, online learning communities remove barriers dear to the hearts of brick-and-mortar universities and companies."
