First principle

I’ve mentioned learning principles a few times in my posts before. They are – to me – the underlying bedrock of what you do and necessary before you start to build any kind of strategy or operational response.

I saw a post by Sukh Pabial the other day where he asked, what is learning?

This has to be your first principle – what is learning in your organisation, your sector, your team, etc?

You have to be able to define what that is so everyone knows the place you’re starting from. If you can’t describe what it means to you and its effects, people will make their own minds up based on their previous encounters with learning. In my limited experience that is likely to mean training, instruction, face to face, qualification, and mandation,

So, what’s your first principle of learning?

One thought on “First principle

  1. “I had, also, during many years, followed a golden rule, namely, that whenever a published fact, a new observation or thought came across me, which was opposed to my general results, to make a memorandum of it without fail and at once; for I had found by experience that such facts and thoughts were far more apt to escape from memory than favorable ones.” —Charles Darwin
