If you want your business to be flexible enough to change and grow, even in tough times, create a work environment where learning is appreciated and encouraged. The best way to do this is to lead by example. Demonstrate to your team that you are actually interested in learning yourself and create a learning environment for them.
Brian Tracy says it best. “People who develop the ability to continuously acquire new and better forms of knowledge that they can apply to their work and lives will be the movers and shakers in our society for the indefinite future.” So be a learner and encourage your team to do the same.
3 Secrets To Be A Good Learner
Be excited, not threatened, by new ideas. People who see innovation as a threat that will diminish their power are making a big mistake. If you are dedicated to your company’s growth and work hard to achieve it, any change that creates improvement will simply make your position stronger.
Recognize your personal biases and admit them to others. Sacred cows and biases in business can stifle innovation. They can make you blind to good ideas and cause you to spend resources on potentially risky concepts.
Remain humble. Even the most important business knowledge is, at best, temporary. Today’s ideas may not be effective tomorrow. By remaining modest about your accomplishments, you’ll build a foundation of support in your organization that will help you later.
