Learning on the fly in 2017

December 26, 2016 Sarah Beckett

Making learning and development a priority for yourself, your team and your employees in 2017 doesn’t need to be a costly endeavor. You can leverage on-the-job learning tips related to competencies that are essential for successful performance in your job.

On-the-job learning activities are quick tips that employees can incorporate into their day-to-day lives to help them develop their skills and competencies in specific areas. To be most effective, these learning tips should be related to specific behaviors so that improvements can be measured and quantified.

Take, for example, the competency Fostering Communication. If this is an area you have identified that you need to improve, here are a couple of quick tips that you can draw upon:

In meetings, limit your comments and focus on what others have to say rather than how you will respond.
Practice saying a speech in front of a mirror. In point-form, write down the key points to be addressed. Know what you want to say before you say it.

If you are making self-guided learning a priority for 2017, check out the 12 Days of Competencies Round-up. This video highlights HRSG’s top 12 tips for Continuous Learning.
