    225: The Learning Business

    225: The Learning Business

    What exactly does it mean to be a learning business? It’s a topic that permeates our work, but it’s not something we have explicitly discussed in quite some time.
    Given the concept of the learning business is central to what we do while also often difficult to grasp – and because we plan to make it the unifying theme for our upcoming Learning • Technology • Design virtual conference (LTD) – we felt it the perfect time to revisit it.
    In this episode, we delve into what it really means (and doesn’t mean) to be a learning business and how identifying as one can impact your mindset and increase your likelihood of success. We also share some key resources we offer to support learning businesses and learning business professionals.

    224: Learning and Flow with Jerel Bonner

    In order to effectively prepare for the future of work, it’s critical that we—as individual learners and learning providers—truly understand the types of skills that will be necessary to succeed.
    Jerel Bonner, a ‘human behavior awareness’ consultant and co-founder of Coralling Chaos, really walks the walk when it comes to continually learning to adapt and evolve to meet the demands of the future.  And recently, the TEDx speaker and author of Sharpening China’s Talent, has been very focused on the fascinating connection between learning and the concept of flow.
    Returning for his second interview on the Podcast, Jerel joins Jeff at Leading Learning Global Headquarters to discuss the idea of flow and its connection to learning, as well as how it relates to other major concepts including grit, mindset, and authentic happiness. They also talk about why this is all going to be increasingly important in helping others prepare for the future of work—and life.
