We "Like" Learning!

By Allie Herzog

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.

Do you know of any other Learning Organizations?  Share your thoughts on Learning Organizations in the comments below!

You not only keep your staff updated and educated on the latest, but you bring it out into the world through #likeablechat and Likeable Social Media. I greatly appreciate it! All of you rule. Okay?!
