Self Directed Learning in the workplace

Self Directed Learning in the workplace

The link attached is a wonderful primer for discussion about corporate training, and the move to a learner-directed training program. As a manager, and a trainer there needs to be strong training for success, and yet many corporations do not give the appropriate time or resources into training. It is a short term gain for a long term loss. Better training from the beginning leads to longer term success and reduced employee turnover. The more self-directed we can make our employees, the less time we have to spend “training” and the more time we can spend on development. If we were to develop a better culture of self-directed learning, where we set our new hires up for success, what would that end up looking like?

  1. Hello David.

    Thank you for sharing this article.

    It is interesting to read how some of the top major companies in the US are using the (SDL) Self-Directed Learning in their training methods to help build their organizations. In today’s societies we need to use SDL in order to keep up with the demands of the new knowledge and technology age and the “just-in-time learning” and stay in sync with the rapidly changing environment.

    Take care, from Cheryl
