Culture of Learning in Alberta

Posted by: in Central East, Central West, Uncategorized

Hanna, Ponoka, Bow Valley, Wetaskiwin, Drumheller, Killam – these are some of the places I got to visit this week for our exciting launch of the second phase of knowledgeconnector.ca. The amount of excitement and enthusiasm for the launch of the second phase was outstanding. After 6 celebrations I am most certainly excited for a bit of a break. At the same time though, I am excited and rejuvenated from all of the positive energy and enthusiasm around learning I saw from those I was able to work with.

Let me tell you a bit about the places I visited and why I see such a growing culture of learning in Alberta. First off, I had the honour to be at one of the provincial launch events in Hanna that was broadcast via ICCAN videoconferencing technology. It was exciting to watch Jann Beeston, Chair of the Rural Alberta Development Fund, give her motivational presentation on the importance of continuous learning. Everyone in attendance was also moved which was noted by the thunderous applause after her speech.

While in Wetaskiwin a great group of ladies were able to network and two different organizations were able to book A.S.K. Workshops for their board members. Those who take the initiative to assess their leadership learning priorities definitely believe in continuous learning.

While in traveling and sharing the exciting news about the launch of knowledgeconnector I also received great feedback from interagency groups in Ponoka, Bow Valley and Camrose. The local launch in Drumheller was attended by many who had already taken an ASK Leadership Assessment Workshop and you could just see the enthusiasm of the possibilities it could have for them personal, professionally and for other community groups they work with.

All in all, this week was a bit of a whirlwind but generated a ton of positive opportunities for Albertans in the nonprofit/voluntary sector to grow and spread their passion for continuous learning.

If you are also passionate about continuous learning I encourage you to book a workshop with me to identify your leadership strengths and learning priorities.
