In the learning industry, I find we always talk about the modern learning philosophies, skills and experiences our people need, but rarely do I see or hear anyone talk about the skills and experience modern learning professionals need to navigate today’s world.
I came across an interesting quote recently, while listening to a podcast between the comedian Russell Brand and self-help guru Tony Robbins:
“We all teach, what we most need to learn”
It struck me as I had been thinking about the capabilities of learning teams and how many people are actually keeping their own skills up to date, embracing continuous learning and actually practising what we preach to everyone else.
I hope we all know by now, that learning takes place in many, many, many more arenas than just a classroom.
This is going to be a quick post on the key lessons I’ve learnt in 2018. I hope in sharing these that you can take something from them and maybe learn something new in 2019.
What I’m going to give my take on in this post, is a popular theory first bought to the world by Kevin Kelly in his article “1000 True Fans” and recently updated in Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss. I’ll be giving my thoughts on how keeping your true fans extremely happy will help build your audience and improve engagement to your content.
