Organizational learning has, for too long, been owned by consultants and chief training and learning officers. Any effort to learn how to improve leadership, management, team building, communication, planning, or other organizational skills, has started with these external and internal gatekeepers. This has made learning generally inaccessible to the people with the greatest need.
This is why Jim Stilwell and I have created Learning to be Greattm. This Web site is an online
marketplace where internal leaders and managers, as well as external consultants and authors, can self-publish their organizational improvement products and where they can find practical, inexpensive learning tools when and where they need them.
This rapidly-growing store has materials that can be used to:
- Enhance leadership
- Facilitate coaching
- Increase employee engagement
- Assess culture
- Improve decision-making
- Conduct strategic planning
- Evaluate programs and services
- Maximize organizational learning
Our intent is to de-mystify organizational learning and give all managers the tools they need to be successful. Learning is everybody's business. Everyone should be able to quickly find tools that will help them understand a situation, improve performance, and develop a new capability along the way. And people who have designed useful tools should have a way to get them to the people who need them. This is our hope for Learning to be Greattm. Please let me know what you think of the site.
