Learning on an individual level is all about identifying their needs and building on existing knowledge while providing as many opportunities as possible for real world application.
Think of some incredible achivements in history. Whether it's the creation of the iPhone, Liverpool's 4-0 comeback against Barcelona, or landing on the moon; all of these things were made possible by incredible teams.

Learning how to collaborate, to communicate, to assets.
Organizations are made up of an ever-changing cast of individuals and collectives, but their culture, processes, and mission remain for years. How do these evolve? How do organizations improve? We spend so much time and energy talking about innovation, disruption, moving fast and breaking things, when all of it comes down to one thing: learning. Simply put, no organization can move forward if it's not willing to actively learn about itself, how it works, and how it can work better.
