Itseohjautuvuus, tuo yritysmaailman uusi musta, herättää mielipiteitä suuntaan jos toiseen. Vaan mitä radikaali itse- ja yhdessäohjautuvuus tarkoittavat oppimisen ja kehityksen kannalta? Miten itseohjautuvuus tapahtuu ja mihin se perustuu? Vastaukset saattavat yllättää.
Hyppää siis jälleen Laurin ja Jeren matkaan suoraan L&D Zeitgeistin ytimeen, tällä kertaa IT- yritys Fraktion sohvalle.
Miten voimme hyödyntää konflikteja oppimismahdollisuuksina? Miksi reflektio on tärkeimpiä taitoja yritysjohtajalle? Mitä itseohjautuvuus voi tarkoittaa yhteiskunnallisen kehityksen kannalta? Onko meillä yhdessä työpaikalla varjotyöpaikka? Miten kaikki on tavallaan tapoja?
Learn2Learnin 1. tuotantokauden virallisessa avausjaksossa hostit Jere ja Lauri aloittavat kasvatusfilosofi ja Dare to Learnin ex- toimitusjohtajan Akseli Huhtasen kanssa kunnianhimoisen matkan oppimisen olemukseen, sen historiallisiin kehitysvaiheisiin sekä suureen rooliin meneillään olevan muutoksen mahdollistajana.
Osataanko organisaatioissa kohdata vaikeita asioita ja konflikteja vai lakaistaanko ne aina maton alle? Tarvitsemmeko lisää keskustelua, vai onko dialogin synnyttäminen parempi vaihtoehto?
In our first episode, our hosts Dima & Lauri discuss with ex- Booking.com Training Strategist Kevin Groen. Topics vary from learning culture to nudging, questioning the status- quo of current training paradigm and pondering on our inferior skills in communications and awareness which truly hinders our growth.
"The change is coming" is a paraphrased headline that is on everyone's mind in the business world. Primarily because of digital, but also due to many unforeseen side storms it brings with it. "Learning is the answer" is another headline that was trying to spark to life recently, but, according to my observations, is a little hard for the business leaders to believe in. This article is titled the way it is because I would like to unwrap a number of problems that are connected to Learning & Development as an industry and see if there are any realistic solutions available. The goal here is to see the big picture, Everything, and I would love for you to point out what I missed - so take notes and buckle up for the ride!
I would claim that the key ingredient to learning is simply taking ownership of it. If I want to learn something, I will find a way. And while sometimes it's difficult to find the right tools to learn, it's definitely true that motivation is the key when you are provided with free training workshops by your employer. You get free education - what else could get in your way? Let's explore.
If you guessed something digital or futuristic - read on, the answer is way more interesting than that! It's also way more simple. Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication they say.
Being part of the Learning & Development (L&D), HR Development (HRD), training industries, I can undoubtedly say that there is a general sense of doom lurking around the perception of training as an effective education method. Training is considered almost obsolete, a remnant of the old, inefficient times…
It's a good time of the year to look back at what we've done so far and see what we learned about learning after roughly 6 months of analysing training effectiveness. Perhaps unsurprisingly, data is very revealing. It showed us that common sense isn't always common practice. Here are our top 3 insights from 2018!
The loss from ineffective training is staggering: $13.5M per 1000 employees. And that is just corporate education. Articles like Problems With Today's Education System also don't come as a surprise to anyone who is part of the common educational discourse. The question is, how can we improve? Let me attempt to answer.
And Panda is back with a blast! After founding a startup Panda Training I wrote an article called “The Future of the Training Industry”. It depicted the vision behind Panda. And it was a bestseller. Two years after I want to revisit that vision. Firstly, because it changed and, secondly, because what we are working on right now might surprise you as a unique view on the future of education. It might even totally blow you away. Dima Syrotkin, CEO at Panda Training
Imagine a much anticipated business meeting. After weeks of preparation, you are about to give an important presentation to an international team of colleagues.
My name is Lauri and I’m the Co-founder and former Head of Sales of a startup called Panda Training. By saying “former” I’m not implying that the company does not exist anymore or I’m out, rather because of our very drastic operational pivoting and dropping the subscription fee on our platform I don’t know what kind of a sexy title I should use that refers to my exact role, as “Sales” refers to a man who asks for money in exchange for something (which I don’t do anymore). Of course, I could title myself with what I would like to be, which should go like “A person who wants to make positive impact on people and the society by reforming the education phenomenon and engaging relevant for the cause people for co-creation”. Unfortunately that doesn’t fit my business card.

You want to have a more diverse and inclusive workplace? Everyone does. But it is not something that would happen over night. Diversity management is a whole new science which requires studying and hard work. And for successful diversity management, training is among the most essential parts.
“We are moving toward a Google-fueled, Wikipedia-based collapse of any division between professionals and laypeople.” - wrote Tom Nichols, a professor at the U.S. Naval War College and at the Harvard Extension School, in his article "How America Lost Faith in Expertise". What he talks about is public distrust towards experts in America: lawyers, doctors and scientists. What is interesting to me is that he is not alone. I see this pattern across different domains, industries and geographies.
Let’s say you are an organization that wants to hire a Leadership coach for their top management or a Sales trainer for the new sales team. Regardless if you are a huge corporation, a medium sized business or a startup, if you don’t have internal trainers, these are a few things you would probably first do:
“What are you going to do to compensate me for 10,000 malfunctioning intercom systems my company bought from you?” I barked at the Spanish business executive seated across the conference table from me. In my role as actor in a training simulation, I had been venting my complaints to him about his lousy products for the past 15 minutes, and I was not planning to leave the meeting empty handed.
Most of us have heard about the principles of good marketing - A I D A
So we all work hard on that perfect message, crafting what we are going to say, and how we are going to say it, what methods we’ll use and then…nothing happens.
What could we have done wrong here and how to fix it? Find it out here in Nancy Radford's article
As neuroscientists discovered more than 10 years ago, empathy, the ability to feel, identify and understand other people’s emotions, is deeply wired in our brains. Researchers at the Greater Good Center deem empathy to be the building block of morality and the key to successful relationships at work and in personal life.
