Your organization can’t be a static creature in a dynamic world. You need to learn: about what’s working or not in your own approaches; about what’s changing in the world around you; and about what others are learning that might help you. This learning is not an individual task, but rather requires an organized and collective effort.

The principle that we must be constantly learning—and linking that learning to strategy—sits at the heart of how I approach social change.

Working across teams and partners, I help leaders understand their organizational learning needs and the existing learning practices. We build from there to create the culture, practices, and systems of an organization fit for the challenges we face. Learning becomes an embedded part of strategy: not a side activity, but rather a core part of how you create change.
