Online learning was a massive paradigm shift that allowed company training budgets to stretch much further than they ever had before. But, it’s not necessarily delivering expected results or desired returns. So what’s wrong?
Doesn't it make training easier?
Sure, it helps meet regulatory requirements and can quickly deploy training information throughout the company. It's also zapped expenses associated with travel and lodging associated with in-person training. And it's much less of a productivity drain because employees can get the courses done in hours compared to full days away. Besides, online learning gives people access to more topics than they could ever have possibly imagined. It's a veritable renaissance of information to help with continuous learning.
~ Joan Owen, FliP U’s Director of Connecting the Dots
Being the Director of Connecting of Dots at FliP U means thinking about leadership and followership a lot, and how these skills can help people at work: yourself; your co-workers; your boss; or even a project team.
In their book, Sam and Marc talk about leading and following as two sides of an unspoken contract between you and your boss. The leadership role is about commitment to people and engagement is about choosing how you show up at work.
“We have a leadership bubble. It might seem invisible, but bubbles usually are. What’s more, a surplus of leadership might seem counterintuitive in a highly networked, diffuse, and uncertain economy. But trends in business – and in culture and politics…”
Our very own Joan Owen has been busy developing a Followership Wikipedia page that features the work of FliP U’s Hurwitz & Hurwitz. The page shares different viewpoints from the followership field.
FliP U’s Marc Hurwitz recently shared his thoughts about followership -- the central concept of the course, The F word that Complements Leadership -- in an interview with Charles Thaxton.
