Real Life Buyer podcast

about integrating learning in the day to day activities.

In the bustling world of podcasts, the RLB (Real Life Buyer) podcast stands out as a unique gem for professionals and enthusiasts alike. 

In a recent episode, the host Dave Barr sits down with Fredrik Axelsson, a prominent figure from LHTS. Fredrik brings to the table an intriguing perspective: How can a department, especially one as critical and dynamic as procurement, be a platform for continuous learning?

Highlights of the Episode:

  • Everyday Learning: Dave and Fredrik discuss how microlearning, can be a reservoir of knowledge. Topics about negotiating with vendors to understanding market trends, each step offers a chance to enhance one’s skills once broken down into small manageable packages of knowledge.
  • Cultivating a Learning Culture: The duo touches upon the importance of fostering a culture that encourages questioning, innovation, and the sharing of knowledge. When a department sees every challenge as an opportunity to learn, it not only grows but thrives.
  • Tools & Resources: The conversation shifts to the practical side of things, with Fredrik recommending tools, platforms, and methodologies that have been instrumental in LHTS's journey. This serves as a guide for listeners who wish to replicate this learning-integrated approach in their organizations.

In Conclusion

The RLB podcast episode with Fredrik Axelsson is more than just a conversation; it’s an exploration of a mindset. In a world that’s rapidly evolving, the ability to learn from every experience, every interaction, and every challenge is what sets the successful apart from the rest.

Listeners are left with not just insights into the world of procurement but also a broader understanding of how to make learning an intrinsic part of their lives.
