Establishing the Conditions for a Learning Culture
Overview/Description Target Audience Expected Duration Lesson Objectives Course Number Overview/Description
What does it mean to create a culture of learning? What conditions are required for such a culture to develop? For many organizations, developing a culture of learning requires a fundamental shift in thinking. Several small changes in thinking and behavior can collectively shift the direction of a company toward one that's centered on learning. This course introduces various conditions that together facilitate a culture of learning. It examines the numerous obstacles that must be overcome before moving to a learning culture, including deeply engrained individual beliefs, systems of hierarchy, and lack of transparency. For each obstacle faced, the course introduces practical solutions to overcome it. It also explores in detail one of the most important conditions for learning: employee motivation. Without motivation, employees will be less receptive to learning programs, and thus less likely to use their learning for the greater organizational good. And the course offers strategies for tapping into intrinsic motivations and generating an enthusiasm for personal improvement that will help sustain a strong learning culture.
