Learning is inherently personal. We all do it differently. This is especially true for people from different cultures and different levels of fluency. After all, an engineer with tremendous technical chops but mediocre communication skills needs different learning opportunities than a great communicator who’s behind the curve technically. And that’s just one example. The question is: why are so many companies approaching learning & development as a one-size-fits-all problem?
As companies strive to create cohesive, collaborative, and engaging workplace environments, they need to make certain their learning solutions are impactful for all employees. That means focusing on situated, impact-based learning solutions that account for diversity and nuance. It means understanding that not only are your employees different people, but they also learn in their own individual ways and have their own struggles. It means ditching generic certificates and classes for entire teams and focusing instead on what makes your company successful in the first place: your colleagues.
