One of the advantages of self-directed learning and growing your personal learning environment is that it helps to future proof your professional development. What jobs will be available in the next year or five years from now? Who knows. Things change quickly. Opportunities arise and disappear. Many companies are struggling to find people with the skills they need.
But ongoing learning isn’t just about future proofing your career. What about how your current job has changed? It is important to adjust our thinking and acknowledge that learning isn’t something that takes us away from our work but it is something that has to be part of each of our jobs. Learning and developing your personal learning environment and network is like an insurance policy.
So with the new year approaching we should all take stock and see if our policies are up to date.
