Global SoL Network is a global learning community dedicated to fostering knowledge generation and knowledge diffusion for fundamental institutional change.
Our vision is to nurture organizations worthy of people’s highest aspirations and fullest commitment.
The purpose of SoL is to discover, integrate and implement theories and practices for their interdependent development of people, their networks, and their institutions.
The Global SoL Network is united through its purpose, its principles and by shared theories, concepts and practices on learning how to learn and on learning how to share (i.e. on leading, learning, and working together.)
Drive to Learn - All human beings are born with an innate, lifelong desire and ability to learn, which should be enhanced by all organizations.
Learning is Social - People learn best from and with one another, and participation in learning communities is vital to their effectiveness, well-being and happiness in any work setting.
Learning Communities - The capacities and accomplishments of organizations are inseparable from, and dependent on, the capacities of the learning communities which they foster.
Aligning with Nature - It is essential that organizations evolve to be in greater harmony with human nature and with the natural world.
Core Learning Capabilities - Organizations must develop individual and collective capabilities to understand complex, interdependent issues; engage in reflective, generative conversation; and nurture personal and shared aspirations.
Cross-Organizational Collaboration - Learning communities that connect multiple organizations can significantly enhance their capacity for profound individual and organizational change.
