When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.”
Jack Welch

Managers are the key to building a continuous learning culture in organisations, so this new online resource is aimed at helping managers have a more active part in the growth and development of their people.

This online resource is intended for individual managers to work through in their own time, but it can also form part of a leadership development programme.


There are 10 sections in this online resource, each of which contains a number of short readings (with links to other materials for deeper investigation and a reflective question) plus a task for managers to implement the suggestions in their teams.

  1. The modern workplace
  2. Learning in the modern workplace
  3. Become more of a coach than a boss

  5. Build a knowledge sharing culture
  1. Promote continuous self-learning
  2. Encourage daily learning
