Avoiding cliches like the VUCA world and generational stereotypes gets increasingly difficult yet it’s undeniable that as acclaimed author and speaker Frederic Laloux says “there’s something in the air.”
We’re in a period of change that defies even the most learned of scholarly models: are we really able to unfreeze > change > refreeze as Kurt Lewin decreed?
I’d argue not and the one cliche that does rule them all is the only constant is change. With exponentially growing upstart enterprises, challenger organisations, decaying old guard companies and the increasing digitisation of the workplace, our superpower is learning. We learn our way into new thinking; we unlearn and relearn as Toffler predicted. Yet learning is still considered a cost in most organisation’s model of operating. And learning in most corporate entities is a fenced-in, tame version of what I believe we need.
So I feel it’s time to go wild and allow our learners to become feral in their pursuits of what’s needed to make sense of (what the World Economic Forum has dubbed) “The Fourth IndustrialRevolution”.
Join me on a journey to let go of tired orthodoxies and challenge the very nature of what we call professional development.
People coming to this session will understand how they can create a learning strategy, culture, community and energy to power themselves and their people to a future of better understanding and ability.
