Social Learning:

Collaborating to Create Solutions to Today's Complex Issues

with Phil LeNir

Wednesday, February 12th, 2020


3 Apple Hill Drive

Natick, MA 


6:00pm – 8:30pm

As our world becomes more complex and our organizations become both flatter in structure and ‘softer’ around the edges with our value chains becoming more critical for survival and growth, we need to change the way we support and encourage the learning and development of our people. In this session, we’ll explore social learning in the context of today’s rapidly evolving organizations and dig deep into the “20” in the 70-20-10 model to learn about the many flavors of peer-learning.

Learning Objectives

  • Discover why social learning is the key to management and leadership development
  • Find out how peer-learning is blended into an enterprise learning strategy
  • Learn the basics of supporting and sustaining peer-learning

About Our Speaker

Phil LeNir is president of CoachingOurselves but thinks he is still just an electrical engineer working on the incredibly complex challenge of helping organizations develop their leaders. He co-founded CoachingOurselves with Henry Mintzberg after adapting Henry’s ideas on management education for use directly in his place of work.

Phil LeNir has a Masters degree in International Management and a Bachelors in Electrical Engineering from McGill University in Montreal. Prior to CoachingOurselves, Phil held senior management positions in software firms specializing in speech recognition during which he developed a patent in speaker verification systems. Phil has authored numerous articles on leadership development and even one on a novel multithreaded computer architecture. He wrote a book on social and informal learning for management development which, much to Phil’s surprise, has done well in Japan.
