  • Continual learning and development are important because:
    • It ensures that we are up-to-date with the latest legislation, regulation and best practices
    • It helps us to challenge our beliefs and increase self-awareness
    • It helps us to improve our practice
  • Therefore, it is important for leaders to establish a culture of continual learning and development within the team, so that they can reach peak performance
  • Ways that a leader can establish a culture of continual learning and development within a team include:
    • The provision of regular training (and refresher training)
    • Asking team members (both as a group and individually) about what knowledge and skills they think would improve their practice and doing your best to facilitate them
    • Recognition of individuals that have achieved learning goals
    • Provide feedback to individual team members and the team as a whole and encourage that they also give you feedback about your work
