To truly learn, a per­son must be will­ing. Of­ten, learn­ing in the work­place means first ad­mit­ting that you don’t know some­thing or would like to im­prove your per­for­mance. Peo­ple are un­der­stand­ably re­luc­tant to do so in front of col­leagues, so it falls to lead­ers to cre­ate an en­vi­ron­ment that en­cour­ages per­sonal growth and the pur­suit of knowl­edge.

One of the best ways to do so is to share your own pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment, as well as to es­tab­lish that learn­ing is im­por­tant and nat­u­ral. Whether this means dis­cussing re­sources you’ve found with other staff mem­bers or set­ting aside time in team meet­ings to talk about em­ploy­ees’ lat­est for­ays into pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment, you set the tone.

Ul­ti­mately, each per­son learns dif­fer­ently, but all em­ploy­ees can ben­e­fit from con­tin­u­ing ed­u­ca­tion. By of­fer­ing easy ac­cess to ex­per­tise, tai­lor­ing pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties and fos­ter­ing an at­mos­phere that sup­ports learn­ing, you can be­gin to lay the ground­work for your team mem­bers to con­tinue their ed­u­ca­tion through­out their ca­reers.
