Synopsis:

Our ability to learn is the ultimate measure of sustainable customer value. Imagine the value potential of an organization that understands that learning is an ongoing and creative process and can create its own future as it develops, adapts and transforms in response to the needs and aspiritations of its people. It allows people at all levels to individually and collectively increase their capacity to produce results they really care about. And ultimately, when one person in a learning organization gets smarter, everyone gets smarter.

This workshop will provide an overview of characteristics, and experiencial learning activities that are conducive to creating a Learning Organization and walk participants through the following topics, leveraging learning stories and real life experiences.

By attending this event, you will:

1. Understand why adaptive organizational learning can be a powerful method for dealing with complexity, chaos and change to create value

2. Learn six management practices that contribute to organizational learning (i.e.. understanding that learning is our most critical tool in creating customer value and assess how it fits with our organizations core value; exploring how to create a learning culture and how to align and integrate to the organizations core value along with ways to create a line of sight across the organizaition; understanding mental models and leverage multiple perspectives re: advocacy, alignment and building strong partnerships; understanding the importance of situational learning leadership, empowerment, shared decision making and accountability; exploring ways to create fluid, permeable communication channels and creating a framework for continuous learning and knowledge sharing

3. Explore ways to accelerate learning through the 70:20:10 model for optimizing organizational learning (10% classroom, 20% social, 70% experiential)

4. Review the importance of situational learning leadership, shared decision making, empowerment and accountability as key leadership skill
