Learning as a Way of Being

Strategies for Survival in a World of Permanent White Water
  • By Peter B. Vaill
In this era of what author Peter Vaill calls permanent whitewater in business, managers and leaders are struggling to stay current with new information, skills, and situations. The old classroom-based approaches to learning in this environment no longer work; in fact, the traditional institutional style of teaching and learning actually develops habits of learning that make continuous learning impossible. Learning must become a day-by-day, conscious habit practiced on the job. In this book, Peter Vaill presents a philosophy to guide management learning and development. Vaill explores how learning as a way of being has an impact on current approaches/issues in management - including systems thinking, leadership, culture, and spiritual development. He also outlines learning skills and habits - including leaderly learning, self-direction, creativity, ownership, and continuous learning - that managers need to develop to succeed in the information era.
