There is one argument that managers should choose what they should learn. This could help both hyper-personalization and deeper learning & engagement. Others believe that learning must be curated based on organization and role requirements? But organizations are focused on capability in context of  immediate performance and the individual may well be concerned about future skills and capabilities.

  • How does one strike a balance between the two approaches? And how does one implement it in practice?
  • What the downsides of either approach? What could be potential safeguards, especially as demands from a role shift very quickly these days and there is limited time to learn and perform.
  • And how does one ensure that the manager is not ending up using organizational resources with limited linkage to organizational benefit? Or learning only what the organization guides her to and finds the career being jeopardized?
