Leading the Shift in Learning: Devdutt Pattanaik
Indian epic poems reveal shifting contexts with different ways of teaching. The Ramayana where the teacher takes students to the forest and learning is planned Vs the Mahabharata where a student is unaware that learning is happening and forced to learn to adapt to the new challenges. Today's L&D leaders need to figure out what is predictable and what is unpredictable for their business, and how to establish learning ecosystems for both situations. A good place to clarify these thoughts is by revisiting the two epics that have long shaped Indian minds.
