Here at V+V, one of our areas of emphasis is education amongst team members. Many team members learn useful skills about and around their craft through online and in-person classes. We’ve found that the entire team really enjoys being challenged to learn new skills constantly, so we’ve made that a cornerstone of our operation. What we found was that individuals were learning a lot and adding to the team, but often times within a silo. Other members of the team weren’t getting exposed to the learning done by the individuals on the team, and we were missing an opportunity to create an additional layer of education within the team.
From this gap, the L+L Program was born. L+L stands for Leadership and Learning, and allows each of our 8 team members to give a presentation once per week on a topic that they have learned or a skill that they have that would benefit every member of our team. We started last week with the topic “How To Be a Leader In The Workplace”, with Principal Anshey Bhatia giving the first presentation and sharing tips and techniques for learning, thought leadership, time saving and being a better team member.
Topics of the talk included “Why You’re At V+V”, “Company Vision”, “Attitude”, “Taking Ownership”, “Thinking Win-Win”, “Make Yourself Uncomfortable”, “Hone Your Craft”, “It’s All In The Details”, “Taking Initiative”, “Time Saving Techniques”, “Reading+Writing”, “Being Relationship Oriented”, “Working
Harder Smarter”, and “Work Life Balance”. We’re happy to report that the first weekly seminar was a rousing success, with multiple conversations happening throughout about how we can continue to improve as individuals and as a team.
Our weekly L+L programs take place each Wednesday at our office, with a different team member presenting each week. We’re looking forward to future seminars, and we’ll be blogging about them each week, so keep a look out for them. If you’re interested in learning more about the program, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’d be happy to chat about it. Happy learning!
