It’s our Signature, Inc. belief that constant learning is an essential element of every successful career. That’s why we pursue continuing improvement as we chase our highest aspirations. Here are a few simple techniques we’re applying to keep our careers moving forward:
• Refining Communication Skills: The ability to communicate clearly is a cornerstone of lasting success. The fact that it’s also one of the easiest things to learn on the job means there’s no excuse not to improve your related skills. Around the Signature, Inc. office, we practice listening with intent and perfecting our body language in order to become stronger communicators. We also look for chances to give speeches and interact with new people as often as we can.
• Volunteering: Giving to good causes is a great way to hone existing skills and discover new ones. We’ve also found that stretching beyond our comfort zones is ideal for personal growth. Volunteering for a variety of nonprofits is one of the best strategies for exposing yourself to all types of new situations.
• Follow Trends: We read industry journals in order to keep up with relevant trends. Joining an industry association is another good way to ensure that your career education is up to date.
These are just a few ways to make learning on the job a top priority.
