What is this programme about?

Multiple studies over the past few years have shown that the workplace can be a really effective, if not the most effective, place to learn. The learning which happens through work and for work (or what we term Learning at Work) is much more effective than learning outside of work. But are we effectively enabling and sustaining effective learning in our organization?

“Our prevailing system of management has destroyed our people. People are born with intrinsic motivation, self-respect, dignity, curiosity to learn, joy in learning. The forces of destruction begin with toddlers – a prize for the best Halloween costume, grades in school, gold stars – and on up through the university. On the job, people, teams, and divisions are ranked, reward for the top, punishment for bottom. Management by Objectives, quotas, incentive pay, business plans, put together separately, division by division, cause further loss, unknown and unknowable.” – Dr. W. Edward Deming

In other words, “the prevailing system of management is dedicated to mediocrity. It forces people to work harder and harder to compensate for failing to tap the spirit and collective intelligence that characterizes working together at their best.” – Peter Senge, Author, The Fifth Discipline

Conducted in a learning circle format, this learning circle equips you with the knowledge and skill to create an informal learning environment to promote the curiosity to learn and the joy in learning whilst maximizing collective intelligence. It benefits your understanding of the art and practice of making your organization one that enables and nurtures learning.

Learning circles are recognized as an impactful model for community-led learning. In view of this, Individual Practitioners and Organizations can now be funded at the launch of their learning circle by the LearnNow SG seed fund.

  1. Identify the “Learning Disabilities1” within your context
  2. Recognize the “Laws of The Fifth Discipline1”
  3. Self-contextualize the Learning Circle value proposition
