Your Yearning for Learning for Earning
Use Learning and Educating Approaches to Manage and Lead Employee Evolvement
As we grow older we become more conscious of how we learn and possibly how we educate. However, there are still holes. And those holes are often big enough to create time, effort and money issues.
At work, it’s the managers-leaders who are the everyday heroes. They translate the mission, vision and values from the executive via goals and objectives for staff to use as they learn to earn.
In the opposite direction, they interpret the learning from the staffs’ experiences to describe and explain what the people yearn to learn to improve the workplace.
Managers-leaders influence what is heard and accomplished during the organization of work.
As soon as managers-leaders utter a word, nod their head, or send an email, they are educating the person or people who receive their communication.
As Shawne Duperon, a business communication experts says, “What are you broadcasting?”
Making It Personal
Here is a truism about learning and educating:
When you listen you learn,
When you share you educate!
As a manager-leader it’s how you support and enhance your staff’s use of work-related concepts and practices like “Plan-Do-Check-Act” or “Frame-Learn-Decide-Action-Outcomes for Movement” than maintains momentum.
In doing so – no matter how you perceive your work – you are a workplace educator involved in workforce learning.
Therefore, its’ important to adopt and adapt practical insights about learning and educating for use with your staff [and you]. Also, value the concepts (or theories) backing the practices you use.
