Adding to Your Knowledge Base - The 1% Way

My Twitter Poll today asked this question: "Has Social Media/The Internet made you more of a reader and/or a better reader? "We've heard it before..."reading is fundamental."

Now what you read is equally important as how much. Yet, in the new age of information overload, so many should know more than they do about critical areas of their world - e.g. managers and how to effectively work with their team members.

Then again, as said in a earlier Tweet - "you don't know what you don't know."  If you're curious what I wish as a management trainer & coach every manager knew - here is a link to the list of 45 Knowledge Points

One thing is clear, the Internet has opened a gateway of learning opportunities that are affordable, accessible, and easy to use.

This is good news for companies who really need to train and develop their staff on a shoestring budget. From experience I can tell you - it doesn't have to cost a lot to get meaningful results.

With that in mind, I'd like to do my part to deliver meaningful learning.  So, from this blog I'll be delivering learning bites - short blog posts that may or may not have additional information attached. It's a compliment to my podcasting blog - Seminar in a Bite.

So I invite you to subscribe to take advantage of this valuable and free resource. It's a 21st century way of learning and all in the spirit of the 1% way. What's the 1% way?...a little bit at a time - if consistent over time - goes a long way!...that's the 1% edge.

As a final note: All learning bits posted will come from workshops and seminars that I'm doing across North America.  If you find them meaningful & useful, you may want to consider bringing the full - complete learning seminar on site or talking through something via a -1-1 Advisory Session. You can get more details about those recommendations at my website:
