Please forgive the late-afternoon post folks! Myself and the rest of the Likeable team have been deep in the trenches at our Likeable Boston office in our second bi-annual Likeable Learning Labs. What is a Learning Lab you ask?
It’s a comprehensive training to re-enforce our core values (Driven, Passionate, Transparent, Thought Leaders) and to keep our staff primed on the ever-changing world of social media as well as the ever-changing landscape of our growing start up company.
Recently we were all asked by our COO to describe the corporate culture at Likeable in a few words.
Here are a few of the responses our team came up with:
Family, Fanatical, Passionate, Driven, Dynamic, Motivated, Influential, Awesome, Inspiring, Adaptable and Indescribable. One of the most interesting words someone used was “Learning.”
According to Wikipedia, a Learning Organization is the term given to a company that facilitates the learning of its members and continuously transforms itself. Learning organizations develop as a result of the pressures facing modern organizations and enables them to remain competitive in the business environment. A learning organization has five main features; systems thinking, personal mastery, mental models, shared vision and team learning.
By this definition, Likeable Media can definitely be considered a Learning Organization.
