It all starts with a question: How can we inspire people to take ownership of their own professional development?
According to Malcolm Knowles, self-directed learning “describes a process by which individuals take the initiative, with or without the assistance of others, in diagnosing their learning needs, formulating learning goals, identifying human and material resources for learning, and evaluating learning outcomes.”
In Learning and Develop the case becomes, “You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink”.
However, you can add sugar to the water to make it tastier.
Meaning we can do things on our end to encourage and support those who want to dive in and begin the process of taking ownership of deepening the level of their knowledge.
So what can we do to encourage people to take more ownership? This is what we discussed today.
