I have seen schools across the country working long and hard to embed a commitment to the unlimited development of every student into their cultures. The result, in terms of motivated learners and test scores, often is spectacular. I have seen corporate cultures like this as well, cultures that have at their core a commitment to the growth of every single employee, from security guards to senior executives. In research led by Mary Murphy at Indiana University Bloomington, we found that employees at all levels in such companies feel empowered and eager to learn, stretching themselves to take on new tasks within the organization. Companies like these realize that we must commit resources to helping people update their skills for today’s and tomorrow’s jobs.
