Sharing knowledge makes you stronger – Part two

Here’s the second of my five steps……provide Public Opportunities for sharing

Run a weekly workshop, led by a different member of the team, each week on a self-managed rota basis.  The whole team takes part in a quick 20 minute session where phones are turned off and literally everyone takes part.

Members of the team who have been on external courses, workshops or seminars are encouraged to bring the key learning points they have picked up back into the wider organisation.  Alternatively, they may bring to the group a previous experience, something they’ve picked up from a book, the internet or other resources.

The sessions should be fun, great for wider team building and are generally always appreciated by the participants.

Perhaps most of all though they help the deliverers. They get to understand their subject even better, practise their presentation skills and boost their confidence and self-esteem by helping their colleagues.

I hope it works for you – please let me know how you get on.
