You’ve heard the saying “families that play together, stay together”, right? Well, what if I said “companies that learn together, perform together”. While it doesn’t quite have the same ring to it, the latter sentence is no less true.
We are more willing to learn at work when we feel emotionally supported AND when we learn as a group. Watching other people learn the same skill or behavior that we are attempting to learn is a powerful motivator for success. It creates a pack mentality for learning and sends performance indicators through the roof. The companies that are the best at learning tend to be the best in the marketplace; and that is not a coincidence.
