In the knowledge economy, the real formula for success calls on the need to learn continuously. And to learn continuously, we must learn to see, and do, things differently.
We learn through conceptual frameworks, and we can continue to expand our knowledge incrementally within these existing frameworks.
But if we are to create new frameworks and see new opportunities, our evolving world calls on us to challenge the assumptions or which our traditional intellectual constructs rest.
Furthermore, it is important to understand that learning is less about absorbing information than it is about becoming part of a community.
Diversity of experience and practice, therefore, is paramount. For what better way is there to foster a different perspective than to see that perspective from another person’s point of view?
