About this week’s chat

We all attend school during our childhood, and the sole purpose is to learn and grow. However, as we settle into our careers and our lives become busier, the passion (and time) to learn can feel as if it’s slowly dwindling. Learning is imperative in the workplace to keep people from becoming complacent or bored, or from falling behind in their industry. And we can learn through additional training, attending conferences or networking events, and even team building meetings – the opportunities are endless. But discovering the best way to balance work, life and learning is difficult, which leads us to wonder: is learning in the workplace fact or fantasy?

We want to learn from you! Our #MTtalk this Friday (May 13, 2016) will explore whether learning in the workplace is something that can be balanced with your already-busy schedule. We’re eager to hear how you prioritize your day to make sure that you continue to learn. We’re looking for answers to the following types of questions:

  • How do you add additional learning to your work schedule?
  • What type of learning has benefited you most: soft skills or hard skills?
  • What does “workplace learning” mean to you?


We want to help you to build your knowledge on this subject. The following resources are excellent tools to prepare you for our tweet chat and to get you well on your way to learning to learn at work.

As always, your participation is what helps us at Mind Tools and our community to learn. Our #MTtalk this Friday at 1pm EST is a great opportunity for you to brainstorm, strategize, and share your wealth of knowledge with other passionate learners. We’re excited to hear how you’re able to change learning in the workplace from fantasy to fact. Remember, your response could be featured right here on our blog!
