Seventh_way_to_evolve_with_the_modern_learning_culture_-_reflect_as_a_teamSeventh Way to Evolve with the Modern Learning Culture: Reflect as a Team

To continue to evolve with the modern learning culture, I encourage you to reflect as a team.

Reflection in Modern Culture

I’ve identified four main drivers of modern learning culture. One key influencer is that globally dispersed virtual teams are everywhere. These virtual teams are not only geographically disconnected, they are also comprised of many different cultures. This distance can hurt individual and team performance. Requiring reflection can help bridge the gaps inherent to global and virtual teams. We all have a lot of inner thoughts, but when teams stop to consider their work, learning continues to happen. In the modern learning culture, individual employees must reflect on their own performance and then share with the group.

Fourth Way to Evolve with the Modern Learning Culture: Engage Managers in Learning

My fourth recommendation for evolving with the modern learning culture is to engage managers in learning.

I used to get so frustrated and think “Bad managers! Bad managers! You’re not supporting your learners!” I now realize though, that we can’t fault them for this. Many of these folks never participated in the type of training we’re creating, so they have no frame of reference for what support learners need from them. Additionally, we as an industry haven’t done a good job of engaging managers.

This combination results in our learners failing to get the support that they need.
