Learning Uncut is about real conversations around real learning solutions and real experiences with real advice from real people.

We’re all about keeping it “real.”

Here’s an overview of our approach:

Strategy and tactics. We want to unpack the strategy and how-to’s of creating great learning solutions, frameworks and teams.

CONVERSATIONS, NOT SCRIPTED DISCUSSION
Our podcasts are professional but not so edited and polished that they lose their authenticity. We want our audience to hear real people having real conversations and sharing real examples and advice.

PROGRESSIVE
We want to showcase the “unsung L&D heroes” out there doing great work, being brave and trying new things.

PRACTICAL
We invite our guests to share tips and strategies to help listeners take their solutions to the next level. We aim to provide actionable takeaways for our listeners through show notes, links and downloads wherever possible.

    Becoming a Learning Organisation – Zoe Freeman

    Becoming a Learning Organisation – Zoe Freeman

    Becoming A Learning Organisation is the title of the Waka Kotahi New Zealand Transport Agency’s learning strategy. Their learning strategy is their roadmap to becoming a high-performing learning organisation. Zoe Freeman, the Strategic Advisor in the Centre for Learning and Development, discusses how the strategy was created. Key aspects of their approach include deep engagement across the organisation, deliberate preparation of the L&D team, and being informed by Māori worldview. The result is a learning strategy that was created with the organisation, for the organisation and owned by the organisation.

    Taking Action on Reconciliation (D&I) – Ian Crowhurst and Brigitte BinAwel

    Taking Action on Reconciliation (D&I) – Ian Crowhurst and Brigitte BinAwel

    In the spirit of reconciliation Learning Uncut acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their elders past and present.
    Reconciliation is an important issue and piece of unfinished business in Australia. It is about strengthening relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous peoples, for the benefit of all.
    In this episode we will hear about how Origin has been taking action on reconciliation since 2015. I’m joined by Brigitte Bin Awel who is a specialist consultant in Diversity and Inclusion at Origin, and Ian Crowhurst, the Head of Learning and Development and Talent for Origin. They introduce us to their Reconciliation Action Plan and the contribution of learning and development to building cultural awareness in support of their reconciliation efforts.

    Leadership Development for a Different Future – Helen Sedcole

    Leadership Development for a Different Future – Helen Sedcole

    Helen Sedcole, the Chief People and Culture officer at Z Energy, discuss how they are approaching leadership and leadership development for a different future. There is no pushing people through standard modules and declaring that they are ‘done.’ Rather leadership development is seen as continuous process that it is part of everyone’s work to take responsibility for and engage within the context of their work.
     
    It’s timely that I speak with Helen this week as it coincides with the L&D Innovation and Tech Fest in Auckland on 8-9 June 2022. This conference runs alongside the HR Innovation and Tech Fest. One ticket gets you into both. This is a really well curated conference, with several think tanks run every year with People and HR professionals to understand what challenges they face and what they really want to discover and learn about. Helen is one of a number of excellent speakers, many of whom are sharing case studies about experiences and solutions they’ve been undertaking on aspects of that we are grappling with in the People and Capability areas – such as diversity and inclusions, belonging and connection, wellbeing, and leadership.

    Celebrating 100 episodes: Five Powerful L&D Insights – Michelle Ockers

    Today’s episode marks the milestone of Learning Uncut’s 100th episode.
    Nigel Paine joins us to mark this special milestone. He has a short conversation with our regular host, Michelle Ockers, about how she finds stories and guests, and puts the podcast together.
    The first episode came out on the 12th of June 2018. Four years later, we’ve had 118 guests who have willingly talked about their work in L&D in their organisations. Thank you to every one of those guests, as well as the listeners from over 115 countries who make it worthwhile to continue sharing stories on Learning Uncut.
    Michelle has personally selected a collation of excerpts from guests on five key themes that are important to L&D right now:

    Building Frontline Capability 5 minutes at a Time

    Lil Ryan from Anglicare SA and James Stack from Obvious Choice discuss the use of a mobile learning app by frontline workers in the aged care sector. This story is an excellent example for those who are interested in using evidence informed approaches from learning science to improve the effectiveness of learning solutions in their organisation. The app used spaced repetition and retrieval practice to build the confidence and knowledge of aged care workers supporting residential dementia care patients.

    Peer Learning: Working Out Loud – Katharina Krentz & John Stepper

    Peer Learning: Working Out Loud – Katharina Krentz & John Stepper

    In the wake of the shift to remote working during the pandemic the need to connect and collaborate effectively was amplified. We continue to explore what this looks like in evolving hybrid working models. At the same time there has been a resurgence of interest in social and collaborative learning.
    In the 2022 Global Sentiment Survey recently published by Donald H Taylor we saw a global rise in support over the past two years for collaborative and social learning. In light of this I’ve decided to republish an episode about the peer learning approach called Working Out Loud. During the special Learning Uncut Emergent series in 2020 I spoke with John Stepper, the founder of workingoutloud.com and Katharina Krentz from Bosch about Working Out Loud.
    I’ve done a light edit of the original episode to remove some of the context that was very specific to the point we were at with the pandemic in 2020, ensuring that the episode remains relevant.

It’s all good

Being back into the L&D space I need to get up to speed quickly. This podcast helps me do that. I started by picking and choosing episodes that I was particularly interested in but then I realised “it’s all good”! So I listen to each one now. Really concise, practical and useable. Thanks guys! Looking forward to more and, maybe, contributing one day! 👍
