At Go1, we believe in growth through learning. We view education as a life-long endeavour and not something that only happens in a classroom.
We've seen firsthand what continued learning can do for individuals and organizations alike. That's why we are proud to be a part of the industry of learning management systems.
While there are certainly other areas that someone can gain personal growth, the appreciation of ongoing education is a shared quality among the brightest minds and most successful businesses in the world.
Growth as an organization
Smart businesses realize that their employees are their number one asset. Not technology or marketing, but hard-working people who share their vision and commit to bringing that vision to life.
Businesses can't expand without developing systems for training new hires, preparing existing employees for promotions, and keeping everyone up-to-date with the latest information. Training and education systems that once took years to develop and implement can now be organized simply and intuitively with a learning management system.
Not only do organizations get smarter with continued learning, employees are happier. Employees are more likely to enjoy their job when they are well-trained, which keeps turnover rates down and helps develop a sense of community within the company.
Leading organizations strive for constant growth and improvement. If your company isn't growing -- they're falling behind.
No one person knows everything, despite what they might tell you. It would be impossible to ever achieve such a feat.
But there's nothing wrong with trying.
As a team within our own organization, and through observing clients, we have found that a dedication to learning improves all areas of a person's life. Everything you do and create is a product of your mind. Why wouldn't you want to improve your mind?
Constant exposure to new ideas expands your creativity and makes it easier to stay motivated in everything you do. A bored mind is a decaying mind. Most people confuse the effects of aging with the effects of refusing to learn. Your mind stays active and vibrant when presented with new challenges on a regular basis.
Dedication to learning expands your interests and tastes. Learning doesn't have to be so serious all the time, in fact it shouldn't be. Studying new hobbies is a great way to grow as a person and have a lot of fun in the process.
Learning increases your value to the world. Not only are you more valuable in the workforce, but you are more valuable to your friends and family. It never hurts to have someone smart around.
With so much to gain from learning it's no coincidence that the best companies in the world are focused on helping you do just that. It's a win-win for everyone involved.
The world is changing at an exponential rate and learning isn't an option to remain competitive, it's a necessity. Those dedicated to personal growth will always have the advantage. Are you growing or staying the same?
