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.
It helps to keep an eye on the long-term benefits and roles of the future. Leaders need to be transparent and help people in their organization understand where the world is heading in the next 3 to 5 years.
There is a need to transition the company culture as the current leadership roles are no longer sufficient. This is to ensure the company will thrive in the future.
Just like we create the right learning space for our children at home, we need to provide an atmosphere where people can tinker, learn, fail and grow.
Failing as an adult is difficult, but is part of the unlearning process. The right environment can make employees feel motivated and empowered while having some amount of challenge and healthy conflict.
