  5. 5. Copyright 2015 by Jay Cross 5 r Jay Cross Aha! Work smarter and have greater impact. Learn faster and remember more. Work out loud. Embrace openness. Co-create knowledge with colleagues. Plan how to achieve your growth goals. Become the person you aspire to be. Learn from experience without instructors or classrooms.
  6. 6. Real Learning is for me. It’s self- directed learning. It focuses on two areas: what I need to do to keep up with my job and what experience I need to advance in my career. They said I was responsible for my own learning, but I don’t know where to start or what to do. It feels haphazard. Real Learning is based on what neurologists and learning scientists have found to be most effective. Do-it-yourself learning.
  7. 7. Copyright 2015 by Jay Cross 7 Seeing a photo of a lightbulb can increase your creative capacity by 15%. One of many science findings that you can apply to learn more naturally.
  8. 8. Copyright 2015 by Jay Cross 8 Scientists have discovered lots about how we learn and grow, but most of the findings never make it down to workers who have to get the job done and people who want to advance. I created the Real Learning Project to share advice on what works with people who are striving to learn and prosper. JAY Brain scientists know how to improve the way you learn.
  9. 9. Copyright 2015 by Jay Cross 9 Your Progress Log (“Plog”) is key to your learning. Your Plog may be a blog or a journal. Record your goals. Jot down what you learn (and how) every day. Reflect on your progress every week. or
  10. 10. Copyright 2015 by Jay Cross 10 Maybe I can get assigned to the new AI project here. I’d sure learn a lot. I am keeping track of my daily progress. I share what I am doing with my peers. I’ve got my personal network in place. Bots bring new stuff to my attention. I curate my team’s research. An independent learner, taking charge of her destiny.
  11. 11. Copyright 2015 by Jay Cross 11 Set your goals and review them frequently. Assess your level of commitment and motivated skills, and core values. Consider what you are proud of and what makes you feel good about yourself. Think about where you want to be five years from now, ten years, twenty years. Write down your major goals at work, in your career, and for your life.
  12. 12. Copyright 2015 by Jay Cross 12 You will achieve more by leveraging your strengths than by shoring up your weaknesses.
  13. 13. Copyright 2015 by Jay Cross 13 School probably taught you it’s okay to learn about something rather than to learn to do it. Lessons that aren’t tied to action have no staying power. You learn by living your life, doing your job, and paying attention. Experience is the best teacher.

  16. 16. Copyright 2015 by Jay Cross 16 I learn bits and pieces, sometimes without even realizing it. In the end, it all comes together, and superior performance is the result. Learning from experience is tough. Not learning from experience is the end of the road.I learn as I work, not apart from it. I learn what I need to know. It’s always relevant, unlike some workshops I’ve attended. These days, learning is the job. ahasite.com

  22. 22. Copyright 2015 by Jay Cross 22 What Jane Hart calls Modern Workplace Learning is social. We learn from one another. “We store our knowledge in our friends.” We share information and collaborate. Our networks and “life lines” are vital to our performance. Each one teach one. Learning is social.

  72. 72. Copyright 2015 by Jay Cross 72 JAY CROSS has shaped the way millions of professionals make decisions. He designed the first business degree program at the University of Phoenix and literally wrote the book on Informal Learning. A champion of experiential learning and systems thinking, Jay’s calling is to create happier, more productive workplaces. He is a graduate of Princeton and Harvard but was struck by how much more one learns from life than from schooling. He leads The Real Learning Project and is CEO of the Internet Time Alliance.
  73. 73. Copyright 2015 by Jay Cross 73 “Real Learning is the manual we've been waiting for to help empower self-directed learners in really practical ways.” Laura Overton, Founder and CEO, Towards Maturity. “Jay’s straightforward style will lead you into the age of learner empowerment, choice, and personal freedom.” Curt Bonk, Professor, Indiana University “A suite of tools for understanding yourself as a learner and to kick-start you into learning better, faster, deeper. Learning to learn gives you the advantage you need to be a better you for yourself and your future.” Clark Quinn, Managing Director, Quinnovation “Jay Cross' collection of resources for Aha! Learning rockets thinking, planning, and action into the future. If you're up for new views and ideas and tools, get onboard.” R. S. Webster, Prof. Emeritus Ohio State University
