Learning doesn’t happen by accident. It always begins with an intention. What are you learning? What should you be learning? These are good questions all the time and great questions to ask at the beginning of a new year. There is so much we could learn that would benefit us. How do we identify the most important things to learn at work?
Here are four questions to help you focus on your learning priorities:
Would learning this make me…
…more marketable to current and future employers?
…a better person?
…a more productive employee?
…a larger contributor?
…better at interpersonal skills?
Contemplate those questions and let the answers guide you in designing your learning agenda.
