I’m currently starting a class on high-performing teams and team coaching. What stood out in the reading in Leadership Team Coaching was this quote on core learning from author Peter Hawkins: “Unless the team is learning and unlearning at a rate equal to or greater than the rate at which the environment is changing around it, it cannot thrive.”
This is the most critical attribute for a web designer, graphic designer, director, photographer, or creative of any type in today’s economy. To not only learn new technologies faster than your competitors, but to unlearn what has been deprecated.
Waiting instead of learning and unlearning will only result in one thing: being left behind.
