Knowledge Sharing: How to Create a Culture of Teaching and Learning

June 14, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

At the heart of knowledge sharing is a culture of teaching and learning. Organizations have long recognized that the knowledge and experience of employees constitutes a valuable intangible asset. There are many work situations that call for teaching and learning – sharing best practices and tips; informal mentoring, getting new hires up the learning curve are all examples. Savvy leaders know that when they create a learning climate in their organizations, everyone feels welcome to share their expertise and their knowledge; and when knowledge is shared the entire organization benefits.

 

Why Share Knowledge?

  • The “brain drain” is real and our organizations are in danger of losing expertise. Retirement of the Baby Boomer generation will see mission critical, institutional knowledge walk out the door.
  • Organizations have a limited number of internal experts. And potentially a limited number of external experts (knowledge and skills gap.)
  • Much of what is known is informal, undocumented, or exists in an expert’s head.
  • The learning curve for organizational expertise is often significant.
