Networking as Leadership Development.

Learning and development is a critical way to ensure continued growth on the job. Our first thought of ways to develop our talent is to send them to a course. As an instructor myself, I’d be one of the first people to tell you the value that a seminar on communication skills, delegation skills or conflict management can bring. There is something great about getting outside the regular sphere of work to learn.

There are many other ways to continue learning that goes beyond the traditional classroom. Meeting other people outside your business or field of interest can be very beneficial. Networking events whether they are industry based or a good meetup event can be great places to learn. In those kinds of setting we have different kinds of conversations that are beneficial to the individual and the organization that have value we often overlook.
