Learning is change

Posted on: March 29, 2014

You can deliver a pizza. You can deliver a lecture. You can also deliver a lecture like a pizza, hopefully hot, delicious, and ready to eat.

But you cannot deliver learning.

Talk is cheap (OK, the speaker may be expen$ive). Even the most inspiring lecture, talk, or storytelling session is just words.

The longstanding joke is that NATO is short for “no action, talk only”. Learning is a result of moving, not just being moved. There must be jolt or shift in values, mindsets, behaviours, etc.

Even this reflection is just words. Evidence of learning is in the actions that we take to change people, processes, and products.

What have you changed in the course of your work?

Today’s reflection has been brought to you by Captain Obvious. But since some folks are not aware of this alternative hero, I am providing a soapbox for him to stand on.
