Influencing how people think can be one of the biggest challenges of leadership. These are good questions for leaders at all levels of a learning business to have in their back pocket.

We’ve often found the business model canvas to be a useful tool when doing strategy consulting work. We like that this take on it includes an “edupreneurship” example.
[Capacity] The one interview question that tells you if the candidate is right for the job
Hiring well is an essential part of building capacity. Whether you agree this is “the one question” or not, this article provides useful food for thought.
[Portfolio] Why Social Learning Matters
While we don’t think it’s true that only humans are capable of social learning, this article does make some good arguments for the power of social learning – a concept that is increasingly important in the wake of pandemic isolation.
We also encourage you to check out our report Social Learning Trends in the Association Space (due for an update, but still worthwhile).
