Peer to Peer Learning

The most valuable way of exchanging information is through P2P learning within the context of actually performing tasks. With a concept that every entity of an organization brings a unique skill set, it is imperative that each unique skill becomes a shared resource so the entire organization can improve. This helps both personal development for employees and company development to improve the overall knowledge of a given firm.

Bringing In and Learning From Experts

Many companies are beginning to have experts from different industries come to their offices to talk about their job and how it can apply to all. For example, having a digital marketer speak at a corporate marketing firm can teach the company and each individual on how to better perform their jobs in the wake of a digital and agile age. By having new perspectives in a workplace it can open the minds of employees and management.

For individuals looking to improve themselves, maybe your company does not bring in indistry experts to talk about a different point of view. I would recommend going to seminars of different industry thought-leaders in order to gain this type of exposure.

For businesses and professionals, it is important to stay motivated to keep improving. Those who can continue to develope will surely succeed and those who do not, hurt their chances of success.
