How do you grow your knowledge seeking skills? - Part 1

Written by Alistair Gordon And Dominic Johnson 05 Jul 2021

To grow your knowledge seeking skills, first you need to audit your current knowledge sources. You should regularly review your reading habits and your most trusted information sources.

Here are some critical questions you can ask yourself:

  • Have any of my long-term trusted information sources been superseded by more up-to-date information feeds?

  • Do my information sources reflect the future direction of the organisation, or the past?

  • Are they sufficiently global in scope?

  • Have new thought leaders emerged that I should be following (even if I disagree with their point of view)?

  • Do my information sources reflect a technical bias, or are they broad enough to include reading about my organization, its rivals, and the industry it operates in?
