From around the Web

5 ways leaders are different to managers  Stefano Trojani, World Economic Forum, 5 February 2018

“Leadership is a constant exchange between leader and follower. It is both verbal and non-verbal. The strength of the relationship depends on each party’s capacity to support the other. Being a good leader involves knowing one’s own strengths and weaknesses. It requires being able to listen and follow a subordinate, should their unique expertise afford them a temporary leadership role.”

Making a learner-centred culture a reality in the modern workplace  Richard Dando, PebblePad, 7 February 2018

“The new culture of anytime, anywhere learning is undoubtedly causing organisations to think outside the ‘LMS box’ and do things differently and do different things. At last week’s Learning Technologies event at London Olympia, we had conversation after conversation with a host of L&D professionals about how organisations can empower learners to take control of their learning without compromising or undermining the organisation’s L&D agenda.”

Social Learning is Personal  Helen Blunden, Activate Learning, 10 February 2018

“My best moments of personal learning was when I was in situations where I had to work with others, contribute and participate with ideas, experiment and play with scenarios, test out equipment, stretch myself out of my comfort zone and have those butterflies in the stomach moments.  THAT’S when real learning happens….and this doesn’t happen often enough in organisations which build their employees skills into making and taking orders over being the ones to actually drive any transformation to happen.”
