How to Learn

Yep – sounds like a strange one. What do you mean, “how to learn”? Isn’t it obvious?

Well, yes and no.  Yes, because we’re learning and picking up information all the time and from all sorts of different sources. No, because often we don’t make the connections between what we’re doing / experiencing / seeing / hearing and our lives and work.

When delivering training, I often come across people who will constantly ask for ‘specific company x examples’ of whatever behaviour, leadership style or management theory is being explored. They just don’t seem to be able to make connections between things that happen outwith the workplace and their own lives, work and activities…or maybe it’s too much effort to make those valuable connections. 

The truth is almost ANY behaviour or experience can be relevant to employees at ‘company x’ …if they know how to learn from it.
