Investing in Learning Accelerates Change.

“One of the main reasons great people leave jobs is that they feel they are not learning anything.”

— Ben Horowitz, VC

02. HAVE MDI.TOKYO PROGRAMS DELIVERED

MDI.TOKYO can be delivered in person (face-to-face) on your premises in the afternoons or evenings (availability is limited).

Is Yours a Learning Organization?

A Learning Organization consists of three building blocks:

01. A supportive learning environment. 02. Concrete learning processes and practices. 03. Leadership that reinforces learning.

– Profs. David A. Garvin, Amy C. Edmondson, and Francesca Gino @HBS

03. 

Skills Development

Every MDI.TOKYO Program and Course is designed to help participants develop the following high-demand soft skills: Critical Thinking Skills, Communication Skills, Team Work Skills, Leadership Skills, and Ethical Reasoning Skills.

“The ability to communicate, work in teams, solve problems on the fly, and adapt to change are more important than ever before now that hard skills are ever changing, and, in some cases, being replaced by automated machines and artificial intelligence.”

— Jeff Selingo

04.

Work-Friendly Design

MDI.TOKYO Programs and Courses are designed to complement regular work schedules. Specifically, they are designed to minimize time away from work and home, while maximizing opportunities for learning and development.

 “If our future business leaders are not taught how to rise to the challenge, then the companies that they work for, lead, and create will not be able to, either.

– Prof. Andy Molinsky @Brandeis

“A recent survey by LinkedIn Learning of more than 500 learning and development professionals found that 70 percent of organizations say developing talent is their No. 1 priority.”

"If the rate of change on the outside exceeds the rate of change on the inside, the end is near." - Jack Welch

(How fast is the rate of change in your organization?)

07. 

Globalization & Diversity

Sponsoring your employees’ participation in MDI.TOKYO Programs and Courses helps your company on its path toward genuine globalization and diversity.

At work are you and your employees learning and adapting your organization to what you have learned? Or, are you selectively confirming what you think you know and disregarding uncomfortable changes in the industry environment…?

In our default statewe are confirmation machines processing only information that confirms our existing mental models, and we tend not to process disconfirming information. We are limited by our cognitive blindness, dissonance and biases.

As the late Professor Jack Mezirow stated: ‘We have a strong tendency to reject ideas that fail to meet our preconceptions.’

Emotionally, we engage in what the late Harvard Professor Chris Argyris called ‘defensive reasoning,’ because our natural reflexive emotional inclination is to deny, defend and deflect information that challenges our self-image or ego.

That means that… professional development programs… need to produce future leaders who have learned how to overcome those human cognitive and emotional proclivities so they can excel at critical and innovative thinking and high emotional and social intelligence.
