Continual learning is one of the most important parts of the Simplified Marketing Solutions team experience. We want to empower our people to succeed and believe that professional development is the best way to achieve that. Although we provide in-depth training, people who can learn on their own as well will invariably succeed. Here are a few strategies for professional growth:
Start Simple: Don’t expect to master a new skill set overnight. Experience is often the best way to truly understand an idea. So, try starting with manageable chunks that you can pick up and apply quickly. Then iteratively build on top of that starting point.
Take on New Challenges: We strive to consistently give Simplified Marketing Solutions team members responsibilities that are slightly above their skill levels. Seeking out new challenges is one of the best ways to learn new things. Try to always be just outside your comfort zone.
Use On-the-Job Training: Many organizations offer lots of trainings. Some of these may not be required for your current position but may be applicable to the next step in your career. Take advantage of the resources available to you with your current team.
Network: There are many people, perhaps some you already know, who can help you with professional development. Invest time regularly into networking. This can lead to meeting mentors as well as finding new opportunities to take on challenging work.
These strategies will help you learn new skills on your own.
