Learning as a Way of Being

Strategies for Survival in a World of Permanent White Water
  • By Peter B. Vaill
$46.99
($60.00)
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.
