Learn Your Way To Success
Most people fail to recognize the learning opportunities they have every day at work -- learning that can help you improve your job performance and accelerate your career. In Learn Your Way to Success, Dan Tobin provides guidance on how to identify your learning needs and how to take advantage of the myriad learning opportunities you have at work every day. Topics include:
- Learning on the job
- Getting maximum benefit from taking a training program
- Recognizing your limits
- Thinking inside and outside the box
- Asking questions
- Defining teams by what they learn
- Learning on the web
- Learning from conferences and trade shows
- Building your personal learning network
No matter what your level within the organization, you take pride in your knowledge and skills. At the same time, that pride can prevent you from learning. By adopting a sense of humility, you can learn a lot more. In doing so, you will learn to use critical and creative thinking to grow and discover.
At the same time, it’s important to learn from your mistakes. Learn Your Way To Success teaches you that failure is really an avenue to success. Learning can be gained from any experience. Whether you have completed a successful project or it has not met your objectives, Dan explains how to continue learning by asking questions and redefining your goals and future plans.
In this short video, Dan explains one way to open your mind to new ideas within staff meetings.
