LEARN

Peter Senge has written extensively about the future importance of the learning organization. A learning organization will need to be populated with people who model continuous learning in their day-to-day behavior. Two keys to learning are (1) effective listening and (2) reflection after asking for and receiving information. Asking for input and then shooting the messenger who delivers the bad news is worse than not asking at all.

A major challenge for the learner of the future will be prioritization. We all face the danger of drowning in the sea of information we’ve talked about. There is more to learn than any human can process: Some 200,000 texts are sent every second, and 107 trillion e-mails hit our collective in-box last year. Top sellers will need to learn the vital areas for change from each source of information they select. Although you need to receive input more frequently and from more sources, the time available to process this information will be declining. We will exist in a world that is characterized by downsizing and ongoing reengineering. We need to get more work done, get it done faster, and get it done with considerably less support staff.
