NEW MANAGEMENT TOPIC: The Power of Social Learning
Our world is evolving at a rapid pace, and organizations must face the pressure of remaining globally competitive. Becoming increasingly important is the need to support continuous learning and the ongoing creation of new ideas and skills. Social learning, especially in small groups, provides a powerful tool to nurture innovation and productivity. As the flow of ideas and knowledge increases within your unit and organization, so does the reliability of the information from which you make your strategic decisions. This session explores social learning as an invaluable tool in both life and work, as well as how to make your own social learning interactions more effective.
