The Myth of The Learning Organisation

The Myth of The Learning Organisation | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it
If you really want a Learning Organisation you must build the capacity to change the internal dialogue. It is dialogue that has created who we are and only a change in our dialogue will change that. To change the dialogue means much more than changing the topic of conversation, you’ll rarely manage that over any period of time. (Networks will decide on their topic of conversation based on their sense of identity.) Instead the route is to change the relationships within and between networks, across silos and across the organisational boundary. This is not the crude and crass ‘cut and paste’ of organisational restructures. This is a qualitative change in how people are in relationship with each other, how they decide what matters, how they respond to new information and new people.

When you are prepared to embark on this you rapidly uncover deep learning. Kurt Lewin said that you never really understand a system until you try to change it. As you begin to try and change things, you provoke a reaction from people’s sense of organisational identity that tells you where the real work lies. Your first attempts at change are never successful in anything more than pointing you at where you really need to do your work. Too often at that point we step away feeling our job is done. This is never short work and nor is it for the faint of heart. (That is why large advisory companies and strategy consultancies never follow such processes, the real work takes place over time, within the organisation, not amongst an army of paid hired-hands.) But it is the route to lasting and sustainable change that can create an identity capable of adapting in symbiosis with a changing environment. If you want a sustainable organisation then qualitative change in the internal dialogue is the way to grow it.

Really good piece on why learning organisation work rarely grew sustainable roots, and what to do to make it really lasting and meaningful. H/T Celine Schillinger.

Ian Berry's curator insight, February 2, 4:25 PM
Love the premise of changing the internal dialogue and this "To change the dialogue means much more than changing the topic of conversation, you’ll rarely manage that over any period of time. (Networks will decide on their topic of conversation based on their sense of identity.) Instead the route is to change the relationships within and between networks, across silos and across the organisational boundary.

Three strategies for managing anxiety in the workplace

Three strategies for managing anxiety in the workplace | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it

Figures announced in November 2017 by the Health and Safety Executive for Great Britain show over half a million of us suffer from work-related stress, depression or anxiety. In 2016 and 2017 alone, 12.5 million working days were lost due to one of the three. The figures are clear – it is more important now than ever to look after our health – mental as much as physical.

Here’s some lessons I’ve learned about managing my anxiety in the workplace that might resonate with you in your own job.

Two keys to unlocking employee effectiveness: coaching and informal learning

Two keys to unlocking employee effectiveness: coaching and informal learning | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it

For decades, traditional learning and development went a little something like this: Learning paths were created for employees, courses assigned, and boxes checked off when they were completed.

In today’s workplace, those traditional learning plans, by themselves, are inadequate. In fact, learning and development as a standalone function doesn’t cut it.

Why learning culture is so important

Why learning culture is so important | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it

I was reading an article recently which outlined some alarming news about the state of onboarding in the workplace. A survey found that more than a third of office workers have had a 'poor experience' when starting a new role – which had led to one-fifth of those changing their minds about the job and leaving.

There’s no doubt that this should be a wake-up call for L&D when it comes to onboarding, but it also got me thinking about the role we play throughout our people’s career journeys and how learning culture affects this. When L&D isn’t engaging learners from day one, we’re missing our first opportunity to encourage a pull learning culture.
 
But why does this really matter? We already know that a great learning culture creates a hunger for development, but is that really enough? Let’s take a look at why an effective learning culture really is important in the modern workplace.

The 6 Questions We Should Be Asking about the Future of Learning

The 6 Questions We Should Be Asking about the Future of Learning | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it
In the near future, we should support students and young people in experiencing what it’s like to learn in online and in person spaces, managing projects and their own work, much like how they are living their lives.

Given this reality and given our goal of preparing young people for the world we think they may inherit, what learning experiences can and should we as educators design for? What does learning look like in the modern era?

How Conflict Escalates & Strategies to Prevent Disaster - ACHIEVE - Blog

How Conflict Escalates & Strategies to Prevent Disaster - ACHIEVE - Blog | Learning and HR Matters | Scoop.it

Conflict is so predictable, and I believe that is what scares us most about it. We have seen conflict quickly develop into an ugly mess. We see this in the media, and we have probably experienced it in our personal lives as well.

The good news is that conflict doesn’t always have to escalate negatively. When we understand how it typically progresses, we can take positive steps to reverse the escalation so that the conflict can be resolved in a healthy way. I am indebted to the writing of John Paul Lederach, who has significantly shaped the way I understand conflict escalation and conflict transformation. I draw on some of his ideas throughout the post.
