Whether you know it or not, your organization already has a learning culture. If you employ humans, then learning happens in your workplace every day because we’re biologically wired to learn; we can’t stop ourselves from doing it.
The real question is whether you have a transformative learning culture that makes your organization more successful—or one that breeds conformity and stagnation.
I could go on and on about the perils of the latter: how organizations with poor learning cultures experience high turnover of their top talent, struggle to keep their customers, and ultimately fall behind their competitors on a number of fronts. They may seem profitable on paper for a bit, but ultimately the costs of the human factor catch up and they fail.
Organizations that create transformative learning cultures not only succeed but thrive. They know that learning is as natural and biologically driven as breathing—and they cultivate people’s potential through learning opportunities.
Here are the six steps to create a learning culture at your organization—and how it will help.
A transformative learning culture yields all kinds of benefits, including:
“In times of change, learners inherit the earth, while the others find themselves equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.” —Eric Hoffer, social philosopher and author
So how do you create a transformative learning culture?
“There are 10 seeds in an apple. But how many apples are in a seed? You must help your employees learn and grow so they become the talented workforce you need tomorrow.” —Martha Soehren, chief talent officer at Comcast
Your employees have the potential to drive your organization to new heights. If you create a transformative culture of learning, you’ll reap the many benefits that learning provides and set up your organization for success.
