Can we improve our workplace performance through learning outside of work? Are there benefits to this? How might we go about it?  

This week on The Mind Tools L&D Podcast, Gemma and Ross Garner are joined by David Hayden and Steve George, authors of 'Adjacent Learning' to discuss the possibilities and practicalities of learning elsewhere.

We cover: 

  • what adjacent learning is  

  • how we can learn purposefully from other places 

  • how can we reflect on what we know and do outside of work that will help inside work?
