How A Culture Of Learning Makes Teams More Productive

How A Culture Of Learning Makes Teams More Productive | IB Business | Scoop.it

Make it okay to ask questions


“We have weekly Q&A sessions where the whole company comes together. This was true when we were 20 people and it’s true now when we’re closer to 100. People can ask questions of [CEO Adam D'Angelo], of other managers, or each other. It's really about being encouraging of what people what to know about in the company.


The second area is making it okay to ask outside. We feel comfortable consulting with other companies we might have some connections with, where they might have similar challenges, where we might learn if we share best practices with each other. An example: Recently, we hosted a roundtable where startups came to Quora to talk about infrastructure. A lot of us use Amazon Web Services and we were starting to think about how we could improve cost. We wanted to learn from bigger companies and smaller companies what they had taken on."

Qiufang Chen's curator insight, September 19, 2014 4:06 AM

This article is give us four ideas of been  learnt more productive as a team from other culture. Ask questions is good and to be encouraged  to do it. And trust people can learn whether where they belong to the   Culture, investing people to learn. Other idea is that creating the opportunity  to help the team to learn, and able to get feedback from people very fast and efficiently. The process of getting data includes running experiences, getting data, getting feedback and tackling the problems. Finally the important factor of culture learning is that learning to prioritize proper.

 

All of those ideas show that the team have an attitude of dealing prioritized questions and data throughout the culture learning.

it is also about the two channels of communications in the team to better serve a company been more productive.

John Michel's curator insight, September 20, 2014 9:18 AM

You can’t really learn in a vacuum--the more opportunities you have to practice, the more you can learn. One big aspect for that is making sure you have the ability to get feedback really quickly.

The Importance of Listening to Your Employees

Corporate culture is not static; it grows and changes with the people in it. As a business owner, I like to think that the business has a lot to do with me, but I have realized it has just as much to do with the people who work with me and how they feel about the business.

 

We spend a lot of time before we hire getting to know prospective employees and making sure they fit the team. I also do employee surveys once a year to gauge where things are. I am far from being the perfect manager, so I am grateful to my employees who have taught me how to improve.

 

I ask employees what they like about their jobs, what they hate about their jobs, and what they think we should be doing differently. Many of my innovations come from employees' suggestions. But be careful not to ask a question that may yield an answer you will not be ready for.

I agree with Ben Smalley's comment, i'd rather use a controller, feel it, grasp it, hold it, rather than use a tiouch screen to play games. I mean it just feels better to use a controller to play fifa, cod, and many more.
