Lessons From 'The Line' Into L&D - with Paul Jocelyn
Working for so long in operational and senior leadership roles prior to a career in Learning & Development will shape anyone’s view of the value of L&D but also its potential. In this episode, this is discussed with Paul Jocelyn who had a 28 year career at Tesco, the first half in stores management and the second half at Head Office.
Sometimes we are so focussed upon the goals in the near future, that we fail to recognise the monumental shifts we are a part of.
Those of us in a more operational role prior to our joining the L&D world, have a rarer insight into the needs of others, and how learning can be better implemented.
L&D itself is changing as the result of the way the working landscape in general has changed. As expectations change, so too must the way in which deliver solutions.
The most effective learning always comes from the people who have walked the path before us. We learn far more from experience than we do from a handbook.
'It was much more of a learning organisation that it gives itself credit for'
'Throughout that time it was an organisation that clearly pushed boundaries'
'Being in second place and wanting to overtake was very much part of the psyche early on'
'It was the experience, the3 environment and the challenges, rather than a handbook or a process flow'
