Learning is happening all the time from a variety of sources, and the most successful learning organizations are adjusting their strategy and approaches, balancing content, experiences and application. In a popular new TED Talk, The best career path isn’t always a straight line, career consultants Sarah Ellis and Helen Tupper introduce the metaphor of the career “squiggly line”. Charting a path for the learning strategy of the future, they make a case for losing the outdated metaphor of a career ladder in favor of a more flexible, agile, “squiggly” career driven by an individual’s own passions, interests and goals.
