4 Steps to Tap Into the Power of The Learning Community

Have you ever noticed how helpful it is to test-run your messaging by others you know and trust will provide honest helpful advice and suggestions?

Have you ever been asked to provide a reaction and found it easy to take a few minutes to listen, think, develop a point of view, and then share it?

Such is the power of a like-minded crowd. There is plenty of both need and competent capacity to provide value.

At any given moment, of the hundreds of people who have developed, taught, learned, and used IntelliVen content, a few have the time and inclination to help a compatriot in need. Many of you have encouraged us to further facilitate such exchanges and that is exactly what we aim to do with the IntelliVen Learning Community (ILC).

There is now a featured post at the top of the IntelliVen LinkedIn Company Page called Ask the Learning Community. Every Friday we will post a question or situation submitted by an ILC member. You are invited to enter a comment to share your reaction, suggestions, experience, wisdom, and/or resources. 

This post explains the mechanics you need to know to participate. Don’t hesitate to jump in and give it a try. As always, your feedback and suggestions are most welcome. Continue reading 4 Steps to Tap Into the Power of The Learning Community

IntelliVen Launches Initiative to Support Learning Community on LinkedIn

The value of a Learning Community is the extraordinary wealth of knowledge in the group, peer support, and ongoing opportunities to learn from real situations. In-person meetings like the one today are important, but they happen only a couple of times a year. More than a few of you have asked if there is a way we can get value from the community between live sessions.

It is my privilege, and my job, to tell you that the answer is YES! LinkedIn is the vehicle…we just haven’t been using it right. IntelliVen has retained my services to use the best LinkedIn practices to facilitate keeping ILC conversations meaningful and impactful.

The first step is to Follow the IntelliVen Company Page instead of our ILC Group. This is because it turns out that LinkedIn is moving away from groups. They just aren’t working as promised and may soon be disbanded altogether. LinkedIn is encouraging organizations like ours to use their company pages to fill the gap and to find the promising, long sought in groups.

Consequently, we have launched an initiative to cultivate the IntelliVen Learning Community through the IntelliVen Company Page on LinkedIn. I am the manager of this initiative and have helped other organizations do likewise.

Our first step is to launch a new feature for the IntelliVen LinkedIn Company Page called:

“Ask the Learning Community”

We have already started daily posting of tips, insights, ideas, problems, and solutions. All you need to do is:
·      Open LinkedIn

·      Search for IntelliVen

·      Press FOLLOW…

Follow the IntelliVen Learning Community on LinkedIn
…and enjoy the content and participate in the discussion. You will see daily posts often with short video clips from the MtL program, Interactive Overviews, and ILC sessions. This is the place to share your successes and what you’ve learned, as well as ask questions, share your challenges in real-time, test-run your messaging, and support each other.

We look forward to your engagement on LinkedIn!
