This week I delve into more thought provoking topics from the world of learning and human development.
First up, I share my own thoughts on why old does not mean obsolete and new does not mean best.
Why did I write this: Because we tend to jump on the hot and new latest trend with disregard to the wealth of options available. Whether this is in our personal lives with a new piece of technology or in the workplace where we jump on the latest methodologies and ideologies that appear.
I explore this from the perspective of my work in L&D but also in day to day life because that shiny new LXP or that on trend ideology doesn’t always equal being the best or right option.
Next, an article from the team at the Telegraph on how to futureproof your career and why a degree isn’t the answer. Now, I don’t normally engage with mainstream media for a host of reasons but when this article was passed to me, I am glad I read it. It’s a hard look at our education and workplace learning systems today, a focus on skills and the reality of how we learn in 2020.
Last but most certainly not least, a short post from my ongoing leadership lessons series. For this one, I unpack the 3 components that Sir Alex Ferguson believes are essential for any successful leader.
