Workplace Learning Helps Everyone Win

Interestingly, many people do not associate the workplace with learning. Rather, they think of the workplace as a place for doing. Now certainly there are an abundance of results that must be achieved while at work – that takes much doing. However, it is important that leaders do not lose site of the importance of people learning while at work. This calls for leaders to be good coaches and trainers. There are many advantages for those leaders who choose to help their people learn at work. First, the time a leader spends in helping team members learn, translates into greater productivity down the road. Second, team member retention is increased when the workplace serves as a center for learning. Finally, leaders hone their own skills by teaching others to build theirs.

 

The best leaders actively seek methods to coach and develop their valued team members. Not only does workplace learning help both organizations and team members win, but it helps leaders win as well.
