How we can make workplace learning more inclusive

The future of work is always such a hot topic across the world, and even more so as all of us look to the hopeful end of the current pandemic.

What I learned in 2020

Well, what a year that was! Probably a slight understatement but it’ll be a year we won’t soon forget and one forever burnt into our history.

I’ve heard many people say that 2020 has been a lost year.

However, I can’t agree with this. I don’t think it’s been lost, rather I think it’s one that’s presented a variety of opportunities, and time (whether good or bad) to slow down to assess how we’ve been living up till now.

So, with the turbulence of 2020 comes a somewhat diverse set of learnings from my own world in the last 12 months. Here’s a few that I believe are worth sharing.

Crafting curiosity: The essential ingredient to behaviour change and growth

The most important factor, which I find is hardly ever discussed when looking to create personal, cultural and organisational change, is measuring the current level of curiosity and if needed,  crafting curiosity around the outcome you wish to achieve.

You’re probably aware of this already (or I hope you’re at least!) but people are mostly motivated by self interest. Recognising that we are missing out on something that others in our community are a part of is a massive motivation in taking action.
