Don't let your ego stand in the way of your desire to learn. Successful leaders are always open to acquire new knowledge, because they know that there is always something they have not yet discovered. If you are an expert in a field, then search for other related areas where you can benefit from the knowledge you already have. When you are faced with old challenges, it will benefit you to apply the students' approach to the problem. Ask questions and test new methods for solution.
Lifelong learning is marketed politically as a potential enhancement of Denmark's competitiveness. The government aims for Denmark to maintains its position in the future as one of the world's wealthiest countries and believe that an increased focus on initiatives, such as lifelong learning, innovation, sustainability and citizenship can contribute to achieve this. Specifically, this effort must be carried out by implementing, practicing and prioritising the factors mentioned in the educational system and the employment sector. In this perspective, learning is also a tool in the fight of maintaining Denmark's competitiveness and the Danish educational level.
The ambition of lifelong learning also includes flexibility on the labor market, so that both well-educated, as well as uneducated, will be able to change jobs and job routines, when the time requires. At PROBANA Business School, we are witnessing a request from Danish companies to upgrade their employees' professional skills. They must be adaptable in order to meet the demands of the globalised world. Innovation must contribute to ensure growth and labor in a global market where Danish companies would otherwise find it difficult to compete with eastern European and Asian countries about being the cheapest manufacturers of a product. To be adaptable and innovative requires learning.
It is always time to learn something new.
