Learn or Die: Using Science to Build a Leading-Edge Learning Organization Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
To compete with today's increasing globalization and rapidly evolving technologies, individuals, and organizations must take their ability to learn - the foundation for continuous improvement, operational excellence, and innovation - to a much higher level. In Learn or Die, Edward D. Hess combines recent advances in neuroscience, psychology, behavioral economics, and education with key research on high-performance businesses to create an actionable blueprint for becoming a leading-edge learning organization.
Learn or Die examines the process of learning from an individual and an organizational standpoint. From an individual perspective, the audiobook discusses the cognitive, emotional, motivational, attitudinal, and behavioral factors that promote better learning. Organizationally, Learn or Die focuses on the kinds of structures, culture, leadership, employee learning behaviors, and human resource policies that are necessary to create an environment that enables critical and innovative thinking, learning conversations, and collaboration. The volume also provides strategies to mitigate the reality that humans can be reflexive, lazy thinkers who seek confirmation of what they believe to be true and affirmation of their self-image. Exemplar learning organizations discussed include the secretive Bridgewater Associates, LP; Intuit, Inc.; United Parcel Service (UPS); W. L. Gore & Associates; and IDEO.

As Professor Hess enjoyably outlines in his excellent book, it begins with an understanding of how the human mind works and how high-performing organizations prioritize and deliver critical feedback.
Most businesses are less than the sum of their parts. Learn or Die is a challenge to that wasteful inequality.
