TAKING and Creating Opportunities as a Learning Organization in WAGGGS

what is a learning organization
What is a Learning Organization?
  • People oriented
  • Conducive to learning
  • Transformative
  • Individuals “Know differently”
  • Pays more attention to empowering members than structure
  • Mobilizing people to adapt to change
characteristics of a learning organization
Characteristics of a Learning Organization
  • Open to changes in the environment
  • Allows change to flow through the organization
  • The Learning itself affects the way members construe reality
  • Experiential, not just thinking and reflecting
guidelines in guiding a change process
Guidelines in Guiding a Change Process:
  • Take time to know the people’s backgrounds, interests, key experiences, defining moments, hopes and fears
  • Remember that uniform information given to a group of people will be heard, read, understood and construed in many different ways
  • Getting a general consensus takes time and patience. Disagreement is not bad, it just needs to be managed-dissonance is a part of harmony.
  • During interaction, it is necessary to be reflective in action
Systems thinking should be practiced. Recognition and interpretation of roles within the system will help the change process.
  • Leaders and strategic planners need to divorce themselves from their role, especially when factions within the system are antagonistic, angry or demonstrate passive-aggressive tendencies.
  • Wherever there is conflict, this should be depersonalized by distinguishing the issues from the people representing those issues.
helpful tips
Helpful Tips
  • “We must meet people where they are, not where we want them to be”
  • Learning is about asking questions
  • Learning is a process and a personal endeavor
  • Learning often begins with unlearning

Without learning there can be no learning organization. Perpetual change is the new reality

  • Continuous change generates ever new opportunities
  • People learn best in relationship
  • A learning climate is more important than forcing innovation

Walking down the treasure lane

“X” marks the spot

Then there was lightning

Then there was thunder

And lots and lots of rain

Snakes going up

Snakes going down

And bite !!!
