About the Book

A paperback edition is available from Amazon.

A common theme across employers is how to build a culture of learning. It's a phrase used so commonly that Google produces over a billion results when you search for it, turning up everything from scholarly treatises to "6 Ways to Build" clickbait-style blog articles on the subject. There are, in fact, many excellent pieces on the topic, which begs the question: why another? Why this book?

I've read dozens, if not hundreds, of those pieces, and found many of them to be practical, actionable, and in most cases fairly concise. But I think too many of them focus exclusively on why you'd want a culture of learning, or precisely how they recommend you build one. Few attempt to concisely tackle the underlying question, though: what, exactly, is a culture of learning?

I feel that understanding the answer to that question actually unlocks the how and why for you. Understanding that answer is what really "changes your brain," in a way that makes all the other answers obvious. Understanding that big, underlying answer also helps you really grasp the full scope of what a culture of learning is, and can be, to an organization. It highlights the real breadth and depth of the topic, and shows you how it can–and should–pervade everything your organization does.

That's what this book is about.
