Donald Taylor describes this year’s Global Sentiment Survey as the ‘unsurprising survey’. Predictably, artificial intelligence topped the table by some margin. But the results of this year’s survey still tell us a lot about how L&D perceives itself and the challenges we face as a profession.

In this week’s episode of The Mind Tools L&D Podcast, Donald joins Ross and Owen to parse the results of the Global Sentiment Survey 2024. We discuss:

·       How L&D views the benefits and challenges associated with AI

·       The non-AI topics which gained popularity this year

·       Declining interest in collaborative/social working and coaching/mentoring 

·       The potential risks of L&D’s current obsession with AI

To read the Global Sentiment Survey report for yourself, head to Don’s website.

During our discussion, Owen mentioned responses to the GSS from our own Gent Ahmetaj and Ross Garner.

In ‘What I Learned this Week’, Owen referenced Ben Thompson’s newsletter, Stratechery.

Ross mentioned how he’d followed Wirecutter’s recommendations (which he learned about through Owen) to buy a new pair of earphones.
