Why L&D Should Lead

So, I’ve seen a bright future for L&D. It’s possible, and desirable.  But is it defensible?  I want to suggest that it is.  L&D should be the business unit with the best understanding of our brains (except, perhaps, in a neurology company, e.g. medical, or a cognitive company, e.g. AI).  And I’ve argued that’s a key role. So, if we grasp that nettle and lead the change, we could and should be leading the way to a brighter new future for organizational success.

Look, cognitive science is somewhat complex. In fact, the human brain is arguably the most complex thing in the known universe!  However, we have a good understanding of cognition for the purposes of guiding learning and performance in the workplace. Or, as I like to say, understanding how we think, work, and learn.  Moreover, we really can’t (and shouldn’t) be doing our jobs unless we have that knowledge. (I have a workshop that can help. ;)
