How integral is personal learning and development in your company? Do you value it? Do your employees value it?

I don't mean do your employees attend loads of training courses but instead, do they have a personal desire and "fire in their belly" to seek ways in which they can learn and stretch themselves in their own time? Are they happy to get the job done day in day out or are they broadening their minds through learning and seeking to improve themselves, their skills and ultimately bring creative ideas to your workplace?

The world is full of learning opportunities now from books and website articles through to Youtube and Podcasts. From 5 minute learnings to intense boooks etc... and so content in a format for whatever your preferable learning style maybe.

A great article raising awareness of the power of personal learning.
