In May, ATD published Pat McLagan’s new book, Unstoppable You: Adopt the New Learning 4.0 Mindset and Change Your Life. This book captures Pat’s spirit of looking at learning from the learner’s perspective. Her view is that learners’ capabilities, confidence, and self-image in learning need a radical change for them to thrive in a world of proliferating resources, information overload, artificial intelligence, and many other paradigm-shifting forces. The learning professional can only do so much through program and system design and performance coaching. It’s up to the learners to learn whenever and wherever they are—in the classroom, online, in experiences, and through reading.

Pat has written about participation and self-management before: On-the-Level: Performance Communication That Works focuses on shared responsibility communication, Change Is Everybody’s Business helps readers learn about their role in change, The Age of Participation: New Governance for the Workplace and the World looks at the systemic issues of participation, and The Shadow Side of Power: Lessons for Leaders looks closely at leaders’ use of power. She has now set her sights on helping to empower learners in all learning situations by creating unstoppable learners.

She has received awards for thought leadership, worked on strategic learning and leadership issues all around the world, and served in professional leadership roles, including on the ATD board.
