"Learning To Learn" -- The Needed Skill For A Flat World

In Thomas Friedman's book The World is Flat, he states the following:

Being adaptable in a flat world, knowing how to "learn how to learn," will be one of the most important assets any worker can have...the more those with specialized education, or the ability to learn how to learn, will be in demand... (page 239).

It is my opinion that "learning how to learn" is not taught in most of our businesses or educational systems. Employees are no longer guaranteed lifetime employment, but they can enhance their employability. Friedman says, "But we can guarantee you that government and companies will focus on giving you the tools to make you more lifetime employable."

I don't know of any other workshop that teaches individuals to "learn how to learn" than the 2-day workshop titled, "Idea Mapping: A learning Workshop." This is not a sales tactic, but is a plea for you to pursue furthur education in what ever field of expertise you are called.

Idea Mapping is one component of "learning how to learn". But to get a full education, register for a 2-day workshop that will go way beyond Idea Mapping. Give yourself or your company this gift. You'll leave an eternal mark.
