Leonard sessments and conclusions if urged on by ever changing circumstances. In this respect, the practical value is even more important. Dorothy A. Leonard does not only proclaim a holistic approach but she actually lives it in a way that truly touches the mind and soul. Sober field studies with most important empirical findings are accompanied by extraordinary interdisciplinary research and in-depth analysis. As she is reluctant to reinforce popular trends, she challenges tendencies to perpetuate unhealthy habits in the boardroom and the factory floor alike, thus reminding us all that core capabilities can easily turn into core rigidities. Her sound advice is warmly welcomed by start-ups and prominent corporations, by political decision makers and fellow researchers. Her strong influence is exerted in a gentle, often humble style. The people she wishes to reach are invited by her to undertake a fascinating intellectual and practical journey, addressing them not just in their fields of expertise but Prof. Dorothy A.

  7. 7. Interview Guided Experience – How to keep crucial expertise in the company to anticipate how a given component interacts with all the other parts of a system – that’s a characteristic skill of deeply smart people. When do they develop this skill? We are talking about deep smarts that are relevant to organizations and corporations and therefore are developed mainly through work. But any artist, sculptor or painter develops deep smarts from the first time he or she picks up a pencil, pen or paint brush.

  8. 8. Winner in the category “Crossing Borders”: Giving voice to disenfranchised communities Gary Copitch Gary Copitch and People’s Voice Media have taken citizens learning to new heights in the work he initiated and pioneered, by giving a real voice to disenfranchised communities. People’s Voice Media works in deprived areas across the UK with the aim to empower local communities through the use of social media technology. The Advisory Board was impressed how People’s Voice Media works in partnerships with the BBC, further and higher education institutions, the third sector and public sector to develop a network of community reporters and social media centers. People’s Voice Media actively encourages members of socially excluded communities to gain new skills and have a voice by taking part in their community reporters training programs. Individuals who participate in the program are taught to use social media technology and are sent for training with the BBC: The community reporters program is about empowering people to support dialogue between agencies and communities and to have a voice so that their perspectives can be heard. Gary Copitch Chief Executive, People's Voice Media, United Kingdom By doing this, he clearly is getting the European community based debate going about the role of the new social networking media by giving voice to so far disenfranchised citizens. Leonardo “Crossing Borders” puts emphasis on outstanding Corporate learning can learn a lot from his quite different ways new developments that provoke fundamental challenge of how to involve people and how to get them engaged.

  9. 9. Telling your stories and learning from each other Interview So if you put that story and that story together, you got really interesting picture. And it is a picture that the media don’t often portrait. We wanted to say the good things about communities, the good things about society, the good things about people, the good things about organizations, which we never said. And all this great knowledge and information it was all hidden. And for us, it is very much ongoing story. It is not just a snapshot. But we also said: We don’t come in and interpret your story for you. We want you to create the story that you want to Gary, tell us your story: What’s the idea or the aim of create. And for that we will train you and support you. And People’s Voice Media and how did this idea develop? that’s what community reporter program is about: it is all al- It is really to give a voice to people, to listen to their stories and Th to learn from their stories.

  10. 10. Winner in the category “Company Transformation”: Shaping the future of organizational learning and leadership development using digital, social and blended learning methods. Dr. Nick van Dam Leonardo “Company Transformation” awards personalities identified with the implementation of an holistic approach of innovative thinking in concrete areas of “Corporate Learning“ other companies and trades feel inspired by. This may be in regard to knowledge- and talent management, knowledge partnerships, training and e-learning concepts, lifelong learning combined with merits in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and intercultural cohesion.“ It stresses the practical implementation of a holistic approach and addresses business leaders, HR professionals, Learning officers, consultants and knowledge workers alike. The international scientific Leonardo advisory board felt that Nick van Dam’s work and his core vision are fully aware of these interdependencies: He combines the tough job of the practitioner in the field of learning organizations with giving sounded advice on knowledge-based strategies and methodologies in remarkable publications and engagements in prestigious influential advisory boards, companies and initiatives. Nick’s strong passion for the development of people doesn’t Dr. Nick van Dam Global Chief Learning Officer and Director Human Capital Deloitte, The Netherlands Founder & Chairman: The e-Learning for Kids Foundation, USA stop with adults. Fascinating is his promotion of “The e-Learning for Kids Foundation” (www.e-learningforkids.org) which he started in 2005. In those impressive achievements, the international advisory board sees a fulfillment of Leonardo’s spirit. 10
  11. 11. Interview „We live in a world where there are tremendous opportunities for people to grow and develop“ dia, smartphones and even personal computers were in an early stage of adoption. The internal ‘learning’ function was called the ‘the training department’ and focused on the development of specific skills. The employee training department was in many organizations was organized in a ‘top-down’ structure. Organizations decided to a large extent which skills had to be developed by employees and all of this took place in a physical classroom. Learning today is much more learner-centric. Learning professions call this ‘adoptive learning’. Every person is in charge of his own career and development.
