The Learning Forum Executive Network is a member driven organization. Our members design their learning experience to meet their most urgent needs.
We have found that the insights that make a difference emerge from the daily work of leading practitioners that are not afraid of adversity. These leaders have often found that the best solutions come from within the most adverse situations. Supporting and connecting this experience creates an amazing network of problem solvers in their respective fields.
Trusted relationships are critical for these connections, and as such we focus on maintaining an environment that respects confidentiality. However, the need to ‘share in confidence’ can often constrain connections and make it harder to exchange new ideas. Charlene Li in an article entitled “State of Research & Consulting: The Smartest Network, Not People, Will Win” talks about how secrecy constrains engagement in consulting firms.
In our business model, boundaries actually work to support the exchange of solutions to the most challenging struggles.
So it is not about us, but rather it’s about you and building relationships with trusted colleagues — the members of The Learning Forum Executive Network.
