Episode 5 - Learn to Unlearn, The Key to the New Normal, with Barry O'Reilly

Conversations with Thought Leaders

This episode of 'Conversations with Thought Leaders' is with best selling author, keynote speaker, and entrepreneur, Barry O'Reilly.  In this conversation Barry and David discuss how the Unlearn approach can help organisations and individuals to navigate and thrive in these uncertain times. INSIGHT 1   Organisations need to look at the pandemic different, not a disruption, but as an accelerant of change and business improvement.  This is something that digitally enabled companies are best equipped to exploit and can now been seen to be responding to the new challenges and opportunities that the pandemic presents far more rapidly than their digitally inept competitors. INSIGHT 2   The Unlearn process is the conscious approach of letting go of outdated information, and digesting new information to better inform decision making moving forward.  It is predicated on a think big, start small, and learn fast mantra. INSIGHT 3   In the face of uncertainty, the natural reaction is to freeze and stop, to assess the situation.  This will only result in falling behind.  The way to navigate uncertainty is to learn your way through it, taking small steps, accepting that there will be small failures and successes, and using these constructively as a means to learn, and continually adjust the course. This interview was part of an online forum that took place on Wednesday 10th June 2020, with more than 90 attendees signed in and posing questions from all around the world.
