“Connection is a critical part of thriving in any workspace. Matthew Lieberman explores this topic in Social: Why Our Brains Are Wired to Connect. In addition to having systems and being able to work asychronously, there is value in a social network and connection.
Back in the 1970s, Arthur Bandura created Social Learning Theory, grounded in four main areas:
• Observation (environmental)—observing and learning from the context in which we operate.
• Retention (cognitive)—how do I remember this?
• Reproduction (cognitive)—how do I reproduce this? Use this?
• Motivation (both cognitive and environmental)—noticing what is motivational and what is not
In order for learning to occur, we need to create opportunities for learning on all four layers. What are you doing in your organization to focus on these four areas?”
