Return on Learning

It is a well known fact that the more you practice something the better you will be at it and learning is no different. However, the best part about learning is you get better at taking in information and you are also getting better at the skills that you are learning about.

In today’s blog we will be discussing the concept of ‘Return on Learning’.

Quite simply this is the personal and professional return you get from continued learning.

Much like the term, return on investment, the time spent on learning is also an investment in yourself.

In your career you need to constantly educate and up-skill yourself to make sure that you are always ahead of the curb in your industry. This is where Lobster Ink comes in and helps you become the best you can be.

If you spend as little as 1 hour a day on Lobster Ink, you can expect to complete at least 2 levels of a course per month. This means that with a small investment of your time, your skills and product knowledge will grow exponentially in just one year on the platform.

In previous blogs we have spoken about taking your learning out of the classroom and defining new places to study that inspire you and give you the change of scenery you need to remember your course work more effectively.

We would also like to encourage you to invest in group learning.

Create study groups with your colleagues, test each other and talk about your favourite lessons in the course. Take time to discuss how you think each lesson has improved your understanding of the products you sell and the service you are expected to give.

Every moment you focus on your learning is another opportunity to improve and grow. This focus will also positively affect your earning potential and your future within your establishment.

Remember this investment will stand you in good stead for your future!

We always look forward to your comments, this week tell us about the kind of return on learning you have seen in your own career.
