Going to New Heights

By Janet Lampert posted Apr 11, 2017 02:44 PM

  

My brother flew in the U.S. Air Force for around three decades before retiring. While the strength and sophistication of the planes he flew was incredible, a pilot’s knowledge base remains one of the most important pieces of equipment they have. The military understands this well, putting their pilots through hours of training each year. The number of years you’ve flown, the hours you’ve logged - none of that is enough to forego continued education.

 

The business community could learn from their example.  For most, our main “job” for the first two decades of life is learning.  We undergo millions of drills that teach us to read and write; add, subtract, multiply, then divide.  We are put through various forms of simulations, showing us how to interact with people, talk to groups, and even think critically.  But many times, after a diploma or two, the simulations and drills end, and our training from there on comes in the form of experience alone.  

 

Many organizations are learning, however, that continued training can help their teams reach new heights. More specifically, we’re finding quality, continued-learning programs can:

  1. Help leaders identify problems earlier and arrive at more thoughtful solutions;
  2. Get teams outside their organization’s thought bubble;
  3. Keep a person humble and asking questions; and
  4. Make you a better teacher, which in turn can create stronger, more resilient organizations.

 

Dynamic Communities recognizes these benefits and has designed a number of training opportunities with these goals in mind. Whether you’re looking to expand your business model, improve your organization’s ROI, or build stronger teams, we hope you’ll join us for one of our upcoming events:
