Approach influences the effectiveness of activity. The way in which techniques are learned and applied is as important to their success as the techniques themselves. TED talks are a great example of how approach influences learning. In just a matter of minutes, exceptionally bright people breakdown often-complex ideas into simple consumable elements, introducing a broad audience to new subjects and inspiring others to reach beyond what they know. The approach TED talks uses has a lot to do with their impact. The simple, consistent, short, and visually-driven presentation style has captured the attention of audiences of all ages and introduced topics to people who may otherwise never be introduced to them.
Approach matters in learning proven techniques in your business as well. Applying proven techniques with a modern approach provides expedited learning and utilization of both basic and complex activities. Quick retention and utilization of activities generates quicker returns on learning and a system which reacts better to change. An environment which is tuned to learn quickly and identify change as an opportunity will attract high-caliber talent. Today’s talent is much more selective with their employment choices and are looking for environments that embrace a modern learning approach and change as opportunity. To stay ahead in your industry, you will need to have an environment which delights, inspires, and attracts the best and brightest. So, learn how to be forward thinking in your approach to learning and you will continually delight yourself, your business, and those around you. Get good at it and you may soon be posting your TED talk on YouTube soon!
