The Last Evaluation: More Thoughts to Decolonize Learning, Development, & Evaluation in the Workplace


1. Words are the carrier of meaning.

2. What's "literal" is what's currently "in mind".

3. The language of the mind is sensation (which is accumulated into thought and emotion...not words)

4. Words cannot substitute meaning.

5. Words are an art form, a technology and a communication tool just as much as painting, music, dance and computers.

6. Just as the atmosphere is part of our natural environment, learning is part of our natural environment. Learning is not something we "do". We don't go outside to "atmosphere" and we don't go to class to "learn".  Our learning environment enables meaning-making (in work and life).

7. Everything we mean we make. Everything we make/mean is true (not right or wrong)

8. According to Theory of Mind, meaning is hidden in the subconscious and everything in the subconscious is true (not right or wrong).

9. One function of the subconscious is to protect meaning from all danger, real or imagined.

10. Using meaning comprehension, we manufacture meaning (knowledge) in the inferential stage.

11. If change will occur, it will originate at the level of accountability which is the level of  meaning making... not evaluation or literal.

12. Change can also happen "outside" or sui generis from the inferential...this is innovation.
