This week on Centric’s Biz and Tech Talks, we take a look at continued learning in a professional capacity. We share tips and tricks to make furthering education less daunting.
The continuing development of skills and knowledge is more critical than ever, even beyond the professional realm. For many of us, though, it leaves us with numerous questions: What can I do to be a lifelong learner? How can I fit that into my already packed schedule?
In this episode of Centric’s Biz and Tech Talks, we talk with Erynn Truex, learning manager for Centric, about her answers to those questions. We talk about the importance of continuing education and how to take steps towards professional learning. We break down specific activities everyone can do to make the most of their learning and experience.
We dive into the learning process itself, discussing learning styles and platforms. After all, learning is not limited to reading a book, listening to a podcast, or attending a seminar. It is also about applying your day to day experience, as well as understanding how to unlearn something when it’s no longer applicable or timely.
No matter how you learn or what you’d like to learn, Erynn’s tips will help.
