A recent article in the Wall Street Journal (“Lessons Learned” by Harry J. Martin, December 14, 2008) draws the same conclusion. The author, an associate professor of management and labor relations at Cleveland State University, mentions some excellent pointers for employees to keep on top of their game, including:
- Logging what they have learned and turning into a concrete action plan
- Seeking help from their peers and managers in tracking and developing their skills
- Accessing experts in the specific skills they aim to improve.
Thanks to Peter Aviles of New York City Transit for bringing the article to my attention.
