You Are What You Learn or Are You?

Early this month Forbes ran a guest column by Columbia Business School Professor Raymond Fisman that is strangely relatable to both cause-related marketing and informal learning, the topics of my two blogs.

The Forbes headline describes it beautifully; “You Are What You Learn.”

I’ve posted on what Fisman’s findings mean to informal learners on my blog on informal learning called The Learner’s Guild.

Tomorrow in this space I’ll post on what Fisman’s study might mean to fundraisers and to those of us who practice cause-related marketing.

So why the brain in the box on the left? Fisman’s study supports two seemingly diametrically-opposed conclusions. The first is that your training determines who you are. The second is that you can change all that.

Stay tuned...
