Are holistic learners spatial learners

Learning organization

Do you want to set up a learning organization? I am happy to support you!

Learning organizations usually develop particularly successfully economically because they allow and promote innovative developments. In a learning organization, learning takes place at all levels - at the level of individual employees, teams and the organization as a whole. The resulting knowledge is acquired in the course of a special learning and corporate culture and passed on within the organization. This means that it is not lost if a key person leaves the company. The culture of a learning organization thus simultaneously represents a form of modern and innovative knowledge management.


Systemic, holistic coaching and organizational development are excellent instruments that help create such a culture.


Excerpts from Peter M. Senge: THE FIFTH DISCIPLINE, Art and Practice of the Learning Organization

The five disciplines of the learning organization

1. Personal Mastery
2. Mental models
3. Develop a common vision
4. Team learning
5. Systems thinking



The laws of the fifth discipline (systems thinking)

1. Yesterday's “solutions” are today's problems.
2. The more you try, the worse it gets.
3. The situation improves before it gets worse.
4. The most convenient way out is usually a revolving door.
5. The therapy can be worse than the illness.
6. Faster is slower.
7. Causes and effects are not spatially or temporally close to one another.
8. Small changes can have a huge impact - but the measures with the strongest leverage are often also the least noticeable.
9. You can eat and keep the cake - just not at the same time.
10. If you cut an elephant in half, you will not get two small elephants.
11. Nobody is to blame.


Personal Mastery

The spirit of the learner organization

Personal mastery means that you approach life like a creative work and that you have a creative as opposed to a reactive view of life. [...] People with a high level of Personal Mastery live to learn. They "never arrive". […] Personal Mastery is not something you own. It's a process. A lifelong discipline. "
