Back to School, Back to Learning Something New

Christine Johnson, President. Cued Forward on

I worked for a business that had fruit delivered for its employees several times a week.  I often helped unbox the fruit deliveries in the breakroom.  A couple of times a month, the fruit company included a type of fruit that was unique, one that most people had never tried.  They enclosed a fact card about the fruit and what a taster could expect when eating it.  While many of my fellow employees often made ugly faces at the thought of trying a new fruit, several employees, including myself, liked to try a taste of it.  While I did not like all of the varieties, I did like most.  I learned that I liked many of these unique fruits.  I learned something new.

To celebrate a new school year of learning (okay, may be not so much for the kids), Cued Forward is kicking off a month-long focus on helping you with your personal and professional growth or to simply learn something new.  For employers, share these insights with your employees and help them learn something new and start or continue the discussion of learning and development in your organization.

You will have lots of opportunities to learn something new this month as well as get involved in the Back to Learning Something New celebration.
