This weeks reading on learning at the top levels of organisations provided me with new knowledge. After processing the main arguments put forward by the text I comprehended the reading well and was ready to apply it. The main argument put forward was that high up professionals are often specialists and very skilled people who have been doing the work they excel in all their life. These people have become so used to their processes that when they fail to accomplish a task using them they become with drawn blaming external forces for their failure. They maintain dogmatic approaches and because they are reluctant to see a different viewpoint or analysis style they often fail to learn via double loop learning. They are then stuck in a position where they can't grow or develop their skills and they as well as the organisation suffer. It's true we all learn in different ways and we have been learning for decades, so it's a logical proposition that learning styles will be personalised and individualised. I myself have become frustrated when my own learning styles have not worked and have failed to turn to different techniques or help synthesis of this reading has made me understand that I need to consider alternate learning styles to succeed in the business world. Application will occur when I encounter a learning problem that I can't solve with my current learning styles.
