The Practice of Learning Teams
The Learning Teams Journey of Deirdre Lewis
February 3, 2021
Welcome to the 20th Episode of the podcast series. Today's podcast is the first of a series of four episodes as we take the podcast on a virtual tour of Australia and looking at how the Australians are applying Learning Teams to improve organisational learning.
Hi Safety FM listeners, this is Brent Sutton, one of the co-hosts of the new podcast series The Practice of Learning Teams, with my fellow co-hosts Glynis McCarthy and Brent Robinson.

Our goal is to support you on your journey and build a better community of practice for Learning Teams.

On today's show, we are joined by my colleague and co-author Brent Robinson and our guest Deirdre Lewis from Origin Energy. Some of our listeners may have heard Deirdre on Dr Todd Conklin's Pre-Accident Investigation Podcast, Episode 315, about learning from uncertainty.

On today's podcast, Deirdre will share with us her Learning Teams journey and we will explore a range of views on;

A) Using Learning Teams for crisis events (The Australian Bush Fires)
B) The difference between sharing versus learning with Learning Teams
C) How to prepare leadership for Learning Teams
D) Learning Teams and psychological safety
E) Justifying the cost of a Learning Team
F) Using Learning Teams for successful work
G) The importance of coaching and mentoring facilitators of Learning Teams
H) The value of soak time
I) Using Learning Teams outside of safety.

In our final episode for the month, I will be joined by Glynis McCarthy and Brent Robinson. We will conduct a mini learning team on the key threads and themes that emerged during our virtual tour of Australia.
