The role of a people leader in enabling their people to learn

Updated: Nov 24, 2021

As a leader of people, you have a unique role and responsibility when it comes to encouraging a learning culture within your team.

You can either be a barrier or enabler of learning depending on your behaviour and approach with your team.

You may think you aren’t a barrier to learning as you don’t say anything negative about learning, but your behaviour may inadvertently say otherwise. To encourage learning, development and growth of your team, it needs to be discussed regularly and positively.

This post will help you explore what the barrier or enabler behaviours are, reflect on your personal approach, and then provide some guidance on how to make the transition to being an enabler of learning.
