I’ve been in Learning and Development my whole career. At a recent mentoring event I attended I found myself getting moved by the stories of people’s journeys and I was reminded of why I love this profession – creating space for people to flourish.

In terms of space, I don’t mind if it’s face to face, self directed, AR/VR, social and collaborative, eLearning, MOOC, podcast, ESN or book. There is no one best way. Content, context, facilitator, learner experience, environment, network – there are many factors that will determine what the best solution is.

What I’m interested in is the process of determining and creating solutions – which leads me to Divergent Learning – a place to apply the principles of divergent thinking (“Divergent thinking is a thought process or method used to generate creative ideas by exploring many possible solutions.”) to Learning and Development.
