Build the capability your business needs to compete in complexity.
I’m Paul Jocelyn, an organisational learning strategy expert. I help ambitious, mid sized companies going through significant change build valuable new capability. My goal is to help your business to compete in an increasingly complex world.
“We don’t have a learning culture here” is a symptom. It could be a symptom of your learning strategy being too passive, too conventional or too focused on control. It definitely means your approach to learning isn’t disrupting the status quo.
Learning is the most powerful accelerator of change and growth. To capitalise, you’ll need to enable your people to be as good at learning new things as they are at executing on what they already know.
Do you need to create this environment to accelerate change? You’ll need a clear learning ‘philosophy’ and approach, connected to the right principles and tools. You’ll also need to build the capability of your managers and your HR / L&D function to accelerate your new strategy.
Four ways I can help:
- Systematically review your current learning strategy and make insightful recommendations to improve it
- Help you set out a new, ambitious, growth focused learning strategy for your business
- Help you develop a new learning operating model that changes why, how and where your people learn
- Work with you to reshape your L&D / Capability team and its priorities for now, and the future
As an independent thinking partner and advisor I’ve worked with evolving businesses including Atalian Servest, Capgemini, Coty, Dyson, Fortnum & Mason, Kwik-Fit, Lidl UK, Nomad Foods, Ricoh, Samsung, Specsavers and VolkerWessels, helping them to see and think differently and to reset their learning strategy.
You can read testimonials from business leaders I’ve worked with below and on the other pages of my website.

Your current approach to organisational learning isn’t developing the new capability and thinking you now need
Your teams need to adapt, innovate and solve new problems
Your people have high expectations of learning from you
Your business and learning strategies need to be 100% ‘in sync’
‘Working’ and ‘learning’ are still treated as separate things
When your business says ‘learning‘ it still only means ‘training‘
Your leaders struggle to role model and support continual learning
