SMNX203 Learning Like Tribes: A Knowledge Expansion Model
12:15 PM - 1:00 PM Thursday, October 25
Expo Hall: Management Xchange Stage
For thousands of years, knowledge has been the catalyst for growth, providing organized groups of individuals a competitive advantage. Awareness, insight, and discernment became essential for groups to progress and lead, and that same principle shapes today’s successful organizations. One of the main challenges that organizations face is aligning business objectives with employees’ ambitions. Clustering individuals and calling them a group doesn’t necessarily guarantee they’ll meet learning goals or the company’s expectations. The assimilation of knowledge depends on many factors, and even when you can granularly customize training, you still need to make it applicable to the collective goal.
In this session, you’ll take a deep dive into the fundamentals of tribal learning and how this can help you build stronger and focused groups: a solid model that works today for the most successful organizations. When taking a tribal approach to learning, you are compelled to direct your efforts toward the common goal. Learning from the way tribes learn promotes creative thinking and fosters authentic collaboration, strengthening collective learning without undermining individual accomplishments. Storytelling is still considered one of the most effective knowledge delivery mechanisms; stories not only teach but bolster human connection and build up culture and values. You will also learn how games were utilized, the effects of recognition, and how you can implement these tactics as members of the modern tribe. The main takeaway will be a practical assessment model that will allow you to identify learning opportunities and appraise the current state of your “tribe.”
In this session, you will learn:
- How to identify your learning tribes
- The basic principles of tribal learning
- About the balance between formal and informal learning
- About innovative storytelling techniques
- Social sharing methods for corporate training
Novice to advanced designers, managers, and senior leaders (directors, VP, CLO, executive, etc.).
