Thanks for the question! While we could prepare an entire conference session in this topic (kinda like the ones I will be doing in 2020🙃), the quickest answer is to remind them that learning through AR at work strongly mirrors how they learn outside of work.
Think of the last time you needed to know how to do something – cook a turkey, fix your refrigerator, or even connect your wireless router. How did you learn how to do those things? Did you sign up for a class at the local community center? Login to a webinar? Nope. You pulled out your phone and GTS.
We learn outside of work on our mobile devices more than anything else. Using them to learn at work will be a natural transition. Does it feel like we are breaking the rules? Maybe at first. But by the 3rd or 4th scan – we feel right at home.
I would start with that conversation. #hopethathelps
Thanks for the question Millennial Dude! 😁
Switching jobs often is common these days for sure – but I think assigning a label of “right or wrong” to it isn’t necessary. You are the only one who knows what you need, when you need it. If you find yourself ready for a new challenge at 2, 3 or even 5 years – you should move towards that new challenge.
Sometimes discontentment is not really about our job, but about personal fulfillment. Stop and reflect on what you really enjoy about your job and why you took it to begin with. Then assess if you are still doing those things. This will help you to figure out if you have changed, or your work has changed. If your work has changed, time for a chat with your manager about where to go from here. If you find that it is YOU that has changed, it may very well be time to move towards something that lights up your board. Hope that helps!
