“In terms of application, formal learning can be useful in the early stages of a person’s career – the novice stage. But as people become more professional, more skilled, and new competencies emerge, they become practitioners. Informal learning is far more useful and effective at this point.”

My best clients are always life-long learners.  They are individuals who constantly look for new learning.  They are ready to learn informally (i.e., self-directed, among other descriptors).  My mentor called informal learning “shared wisdom.”  Life-long learners learn by sharing their wisdom with others, and soaking wisdom up, wherever they can find it.

    So true, however since I love to learn as much as I can I sometimes get overwhelmed while trying to juggle all the new programs, books or calls at one time.
    Thanks for the post
