Some leaders are very good at their job but they do not know how to coach staff or promote learning to help the staff be self-driven learners.
Leaders can foster a learning culture within the organisation by promoting learning as a key value in the organisation. They can be good role-models for learning by upgrading their own skills and knowledge continuously and sharing their knowledge and skills through coaching and mentoring.
Fostering a learning culture through enlightened leadership practices includes:
- Strengthening the skill of leaders to coach, mentor and motivate staff to learn
- Acting as positive role models for continuous learning
- Supporting and motivating staff in their learning and development
- Providing opportunities, platforms and resources to support peer learning
