Pivot with Passion: Darkness to Light

As Leaders, it is our responsibility to walk bravely with darkness and light.  Now that we are mechanically doing the same old workshops, conferences and meetings with mostly online delivery, the darkness is beginning to close around us. Here’s an interesting fact about going from light to darkness:

“… it’s the ability to adapt to darkness and the time it takes for one’s vision to recover when going from light to darkness that is most affected.  Photoreceptor cells that handle our night vision die and degenerate sooner than the cells that manage our daytime vision.”

We didn’t even know we were going to be in darkness when Covid sent us home, and we are still agitated. Looking back to ‘before Covid’, most of us in L&D were doing the same things the same old ways. L&D meant teaching the same types of workshops with the same formats. Training was a commodity project (begin/end), not a process (continue). Did learning occur?  Maybe a little, but in general we played it pretty safe.  The most exciting new (?) thing was Zoom. 

When Covid showed up, everything went virtual.  The same modules previously used face to face, morphed into online modules with producers.  Being with others physically was really scary so online was the worst best choice.  The absence of real people was difficult for L&D people who like to be in person, including me. We know how to live in this world now and we’ve slowly but surely evolved into a common, silent community of fear. Innovation in teaching, designing, leading and inventing is dialed in – everything is too risky, even L&D. We have become uncomfortably used to our new existence including masks, empty stores, and loneliness.

What if we looked at a Middlespace in L&D? It’s time for us all to step up for innovative ways to move past doing the same pre-covid and current in-covid ways of learning. Join our TMN Webinar to look forward.  What are new ways we can drive hope, innovation and learning? What are the steps to minimize the power of fear? Like prisoners in the dark, how will we learn to see when we enter the light?
