Learning on the job is something everyone can do, no matter how busy they might be from day to day. Around the Elite Dynamics office we frequently discuss how we can sharpen our professional knowledge as we chase our biggest goals. Here are a few simple strategies we’ve discovered for doing just that.
Listening to podcasts and audiobooks on our way into work or during downtime never fails to provide us with interesting insights. We’re always sharing recommendations that lengthen our Elite Dynamics queues. You can also find us discussing what we’ve just heard on a regular basis.
We take time to explore unfamiliar concepts, terms, and people who might come up during a typical day. There’s always something new to learn, so hitting Wikipedia or even an industry journal to dig a bit deeper is something we’ve made a habit of around our workspace. It only takes a few minutes to get inspired by fresh knowledge.
Uplifting videos also represent an effective way for us to keep learning on the job. TED Talks are some of the best options for pushing our education forward, because they often lead us toward other accomplished speakers. We’re more motivated to polish our own skills when we listen to someone who has reached amazing heights in his or her industry.
These are just a few of the methods we use to keep learning as we chase our career objectives. You can find more of our best tips for learning on the job by following Elite Dynamics on Twitter.
