| || Performance & Learning Month|
This week, the Mayor of Victoria, Lisa Helps, has declared September 2018 to be Performance & Learning Month for the city of Victoria, British Columbia! Read it here.
Performance & Learning Month celebrates and promotes the importance of workplace performance and learning to key stakeholders and the public-at-large. It showcases what members and non-members are doing to champion performance and learning in their workplace. I4PL has a deep history in its Learn @ Work Week activities that have evolved into a month-long celebration.
| || Learning Leader Spotlight - Paola Gallo|
Nominated by Fatme Dayfallah
Thank you for the opportunity to nominate a learning leader. Very rarely we get the opportunity to recognize our leaders, as many of them are always looking to for ways to recognize us, the employees. This year, I would like to nominate Paola Gallo, Team Leader — Learning, Development, and Evaluation at the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
Here is why I consider Paola to be a leader in our field. Paola has been a great learning leader and mentor to me over the past three years. On various occasions I have sought her expertise, knowledge, and experience and received nothing short of her professionalism, strategic thinking, honest advice, and best of all — her feedback.
The manner that she provides feedback increases my efficiency, and helps me make more informed decisions.
After every encounter I’ve have with her, I leave with clearer goals and vision, and feel like I can conquer the world both on a personal and professional level. Paola inspires me to dream more and do more — her positivity and encouragement has allowed me to reach new ideas and solutions. Even though I don’t work with her directly, she is always there for me and ready to help where she can.

As project managers, one of the biggest constraints we face is resources. This constraint is complicated by key stakeholders on the project not progressing through the ‘change curve’ as smoothly as we would like. This is where we introduce the concept of the Local Change Agent as our eyes, ears, and advocates in the field. These agents allows us to not only extend our presence as we manage those large, cross functional projects, but they also increase the credibility of our message as it is coming from a local, and not just from management. David Donaldson breaks down the value of the local change agent in this one-hour webinar. Watch here

Quick learners have better long-term retention of the material they learn despite spending less time studying it, according to a new study.
“Quicker learning appears to be more durable learning,” says Christopher L. Zerr, lead author and doctoral student in psychological & brain sciences at Washington University in St. Louis.
Continuous learning is important for any professional, regardless of the field. It is a good way to sharpen your skills and update your knowledge of what is going on in your chosen industry. It also allows you the opportunity to grow and eventually become more creative in your field.
The Learning and Performance Institute’s Learning Live 2018 conference provided great insights into some of the biggest challenges facing the profession. Martin Couzins highlights six key takeaways for learning professionals.
To assist the professional development process for both teachers and IT professionals, Digital Promise, in conjunction with Google, has established a new program called the Dynamic Learning Project to help introduce new education technology into the classroom.
Since a young age, many of us have been taught the virtue of humility — and by learning to maintain it, we’ve probably experienced a lot of benefits. For starters, when we keep a modest view of ourselves, we tend to be more open to learning from the world around us. To a large extent, any effective personal development system relies heavily on humility for honest self-reflection. Yet, so many of us tend to confuse humility with timidity, which seems altogether different.
