Let’s be outrageous for a moment. Let’s assume that organizations are not just collections of individuals developing their talents in isolation, but rather collective endeavors requiring sustained levels of cooperation and communication to navigate today’s uncertain environment.
If that’s even partially true, why does so much of L&D’s energy focus on individuals, and personalized learning? Why do most organizations reward only individual excellence and individual performance? Are we missing something big here?
Our focus on the individual may help explain why some organizations become dysfunctional and even toxic. It might further explain anti-learning cultures where it’s unacceptable to admit you don’t know something, let alone ask for help. Unchecked individualism may also be the reason why so many people are happy to walk away from a company to find more lucrative employment elsewhere.
In this webinar, we will imagine a place where organizational learning flourishes and how that impacts team performance. We will explore how to develop greater resilience in individuals and companies by examining the practical steps we can take to build organizational learning.
