20 Dec How to Be a Better Learner
Few things advance a career faster than becoming a more efficient learner. We’re always working to expand our professional skill sets around the South Texas Promotions office, so we’ve picked up a few helpful insights pertaining to ongoing education. Here are some simple strategies we employ to effectively learn on the job.
One thing we’ve become adept at is choosing skills that align with our long-term goals. By taking our learning efforts one key ability at a time, we give ourselves plenty of opportunities to experiment and grow from the mistakes we make. We can move on to another skill after we’ve gained aptitude in one.
We’ve also embraced the power of focused practice in our learning efforts. We often exchange notes with our South Texas Promotions colleagues, helping us streamline our developmental pursuits. By setting aside time for practice and working together to develop new skills, we make the learning process more enjoyable.
Once we’ve reached a level of proficiency in a new skill, we make sure to keep working on it. In fact, we’ve found that pairing one new ability with another complementary one is a great way to get better at both. The more we do, the more we understand.
These simple concepts propel our educational efforts forward.
