"Even when learning is valued, how can leaders find time to do it? I've worked in organizations where professionals and managers go 10 years or more without participating in development programs. Obviously, this isn't acceptable. But what can we do?"


My response:

1) See the learning culture as a corporate asset

2) Focus content on what makes sense strategically - supports the business needs of the company

3) Move L&D programs into cloud-based mobile delivery platforms

Amy Millican's curator insight, March 9, 2015 9:48 AM

We all know of our modern browsers such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome, but do we know how difficult it was in the very beginning? For example, you had to create your own rendering engine! Technology has come a long way, and since 2005 web browser creators have "had it easy" having to only build a browser, get some traction, do a search deal, etc. In this article you'll extend your knowledge of the internet browser and how it's come to be.

Complex Societies Evolved without Belief in All-Powerful Deity

Complex Societies Evolved without Belief in All-Powerful Deity | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

All human societies have been shaped by religion, leading psychologists to wonder how it arose, and whether particular forms of belief have affected other aspects of evolved social structure.
