The following blog post was written by MyAgencyCampus™, a site for agents and brokers seeking to onboard and develop staff with comprehensive coverage online courses, business skills and leadership modules.
Continuous Learning…Skill Agility…Critical Thinking…Learner-Centered – It all starts with creating a Learning Culture where employees are encouraged, supported and motivated to seek learning opportunities.
This chart from the Association of Talent Development (ATD) provides a solid comparison of Training Culture versus Learning Culture. Does your agency have a training culture or a learning culture?
With many team members now working remote now or unable to co-locate in the office together, best to schedule focused conversations about “learning plans” with every employee – individually. Aim to spend 20-30 minutes with each team member to discuss learning, growth and their career.
Learning needs to be personalized / individualized
Learning exists in many modes – online, e-book, research, virtual webinars, collaborative projects, readings, certificate programs, etc.
Learning should be shared. Encourage teach-backs, best practice recommendations, etc.
Learning should create spark for new ideas and inventions.
Learning should create next-role-readiness.
Learning must be continuous and ongoing. Prior event-driven training does not deliver the return-on-investment in today’s operational settings.
Plan and start the learning conversations today!
