The answer of course, like with the problems in the NHS, is all about culture; our beliefs, attitudes, and values, determines our choices, our decisions, and our effectiveness. Beliefs, attitudes and values are the best predictors of individual behaviour and these things influence our perceptions, our judgements, our behaviours and everything we do. We also know that research indicates that beliefs, attitudes and values are powerful, highly resistant to change and the inertia that drags us back from taking risks, being creative and doing things differently. It's all change in the world of education, learning and skills and as we embark on yet another learning journey it is really important that we regularly check out what it is we all believe and what we think should be the beliefs, values and attitudes driving our work and shaping our behaviours.
Happy to discuss!
