Happy New Year! Have you made your New Year’s Resolutions for 2021 yet?
One might be to take more responsibility for your own learning and development. After all who knows how this year will pan out. In Foster & Build Lifelong Learning Practices in Your Day-to-Day Job. Helen Blunden explains how important this is.
“You may believe that your employer is responsible for paying you to attend that course, conference, workshop or event. If they don’t, you don’t even bother with it because you’re a busy person aren’t you? Well, if you’re thinking like this, chances are you may also not believe that learning is critical or important. Flip your thinking. Would you want your employer to ONLY pay for your development and where you get no say in what you want to do and how to do it?
In this day and age, there are a myriad of free resources and learning materials available. Negotiate instead of incorporating some ‘learning time’ into your day-to-day work so that you can take responsibility for your own learning. You’d be far more motivated this way!”
What will you do to self-improve this year?
How can you help others in your organisation to take more responsibility for their self-learning too?
