This is an interesting read from McKinsey. It starts with ‘To enable continuous learning, leaders will need to think and act differently…

… Continuous learning in the workplace must become the new norm if individuals and organizations want to stay ahead. This places more demand than ever on leaders to take on a new role they might initially find unfamiliar—that of learning facilitator-in-chief.’

There is merit in this thinking especially where there is a knowledge economy in place.

As the article states, it is important to create a safe space to learn and to cultivate a service-leadership approach.

It is also important to use the right blend of training, learning and educational programmes and platforms as opposed to using a one-size fits all approach.

More details throughout the article.

So think about – What does this mean to you?
