Creating a Learning Organisation
Your employees want to grow, grow, grow! Studies by Lighthouse, Deloitte and PWC all found that 2/3 people choose growth through training and development as their top employee benefit. Organisations need to be continuously learning to keep up with the current rate of change. The only way to do this is to foster a culture of learning within your organisation. This means leaders who constantly learn, develop more leaders and empower their teams to challenge the status quo in search of the best possible solutions.
A learning organisation encourages personal mastery and cultivates open feedback to see problems and opportunities on all levels. Some argue that learning organisations attract and retain more talent. Others say that there is a competitive advantage for an organisation whose people learn faster than the people of other organisations.
"The only thing worse than training people and having them leave, is not training them and having them stay." - Zig Ziglar
At a learning organisation, education happens as a side-product of working together, as everybody learns from each other to adapt to whatever the future might bring.
6 characteristics most learning organisations have in common is, they...
- Cherish an open culture
- Design and implement feedback loops
- Promote personal mastery
- Plan for intelligent fast failure
- Steal best practices
- Cultivate a common vision
