Our ability to learn is the ultimate measure of sustainable customer value. Imagine the value potential of an organization that understands that learning is an ongoing and creative process and can create its own future as it develops, adapts and transforms in response to the needs and aspiritations of its people. It allows people at all levels to individually and collectively increase their capacity to produce results they really care about. And ultimately, when one person in a learning organization gets smarter, everyone gets smarter.

This workshop will provide an overview of characteristics, and experiencial learning activities that are conducive to creating a Learning Organization and walk participants through the following topics, leveraginglearning stories and real life experiences (30 minutes):
