What we do together

 

Learn

The challenge: This requires a willingness to experiment and become a novice again: an extremely discomforting notion for most of us, but we’re committed to excellence and leaning into our discomfort for future betterment.

 

“Because many professionals are almost always successful at what they do, they rarely experience failure.” Chris Argyris

practice our Feedback

The notion that you have to listen to hear reflexively lends to practicing the best way to receive information for immediate or future use. Basically, feedback is information about how we are doing in our efforts to reach a goal.

 

“Leadership is a dialogue, not a monologue.” Kouzes and Posner

build our Community

Improving your performance can be accomplished through acknowledging a need for and empowering the formation of communities of practice. These communities are people who engage in collective learning by sharing information about a shared interest through various mediums.

 

“Each individual learns differently and will perceive the world in a different manner.” Landis and Landis

 

Reflect

An argument for learning from direct experience is it can be more effective when coupled with reflection—that is, the intentional attempt to synthesize, abstract, and articulate the key lessons taught by experience.

 

"We do not learn from experience ... we learn from reflecting on experience.” John Dewey
