Learn to Learn.

Leaders of some of the greatest business failures have been those who seemed to have all the answers. In truth, no leader can assume to know it all. Market conditions, business cultures and industry innovations are constantly changing and to assume there is nothing ‘new’ to learn, is to fail.

Learning starts at the top. If you are developing others, then as a leader, you should start with yourself.

Progressive businesses have recognised the need to embrace a top down learning culture to drive and maintain strong performance and to gain a competitive edge.

The businesses and leaders that fail to recognise the importance of continual development and view it from a cost perspective, rather than an investment, are more likely to experience poor levels of employee engagement and high turnover of the most talented individuals.

Harvard Business Review research into leadership development has shown that leaders who are in learning mode develop stronger leadership skills than their peers. 

Learning mode refers to those leaders with a growth mindset, who are willing to set themselves challenging learning goals, capitalize on learning opportunities, reflect candidly and receive feedback fearlessly.  Only once a business leader has adopted this way of thinking can they develop a true learning culture within their organisation.

To drive your team and business forward, get passionate about learning and influence a learning culture.

Creating a learning culture can –

  • Increase employee engagement and motivation
  • Empower employees to be self-directed
  • Build a growth mindset
  • Encourage creativity and innovation
  • Positively influence the business

6 steps to build a learning culture within your team and business:

  1. Recognise and communicate its importance to future growth and personal development and make the culture come alive through regular initiatives
  2. Commit to an ongoing investment. Demonstrate your commitment through continual investment in learning – especially when the business is under performing
  3. Create a coaching culture that impacts on a daily basis. Train your managers how to coach others
  4. Make learning easily accessible. Create opportunities for on demand and online learning, empowering employees to seek their own answers and solutions
  5. Take full advantage of ‘on the job’ training. Learning doesn’t have to be a structured training programme away from the workplace
  6. Encourage and reward success and progress

Learn to learn rather than learn to fail.
