The ‘4 habits of people who are always learning new skills’ article from the Harvard Business Review by Mike Kehoe is spot on for me.
One particular element that stands out is around why people don’t stick with learning they have signed up to – particularly in the online environment. For me as one of DPG’s online facilitators – this is highly relevant as our objective is to get all learners that sign up with us through to successful completion of their qualification.
And this is where the DPG community comes in! If you are on programme with us our community provides a space to share experiences and connect to other learners, and turn what could be an isolated experience into a collaborative and social one.
Whether you are on a blended or online programme, there is always someone out there in our community, whether peers, facilitators or perhaps past participants or other HR and L&D professionals.
You just need to reach out! Engaging with others is part of developing your Personal Learning Network and really is a hugely beneficial part of your learning throughout your programme and beyond…I look forward to collaborating with you soon :)
