No matter how educated or experienced in a given area you are, there’s nothing like starting a new job to put you back at square one. The learning never ends, which we think is an exciting prospect. We acquire new information and sharpen our skills every day in the life of Tier 1 Event Management. Here are some of our favorite strategies for doing so:
- Shadow Others: Leadership by example is a major part of our culture. Not only do our managers act in accordance with Tier 1 Event Management values, we work with them on a one-on-one basis. These close interactions allow us to learn a variety of best practices in a hands-on manner.
- Ask Questions: Asking questions is clearly an effective means of learning, but it’s still worth mentioning because a lot of people hesitate to speak up and make inquiries. We’ve found that it’s best to make lists of questions as they arise in our minds, so we can address them at one time without worry of forgetting anything.
- Try: The value of taking risks and trying new things cannot be overstated. Even when things don’t turn out as we’d hoped, we always find learning opportunities in our explorations and shortcomings. Talking through our discoveries helps us solidify the information in our minds.
Use these techniques to continue learning as you advance your career.
