One of our twelve Values In Action at Ambassador Solutions is Learn Continuously:
We believe in lifeflong learning for teammates and clients alike. We consider “teaching our teammates/clients to fish” (rather than fostering an unhealthy dependency upon us) to be an important part of the work we do.
We memorialized these Values In Action within our strategic plan that we finalized last summer. Little did I know how soon I would be personally putting “Learn Continuously” into action. In January, I began the fulfillment of a lifelong dream by enrolling in the Taylor University MBA program. Now halfway through the second quarter, I’m pleased to say that continuous learning has indeed been taking place…albeit slowly at times. It’s been a rigorous yet rewarding experience.
I’ll be graduating next spring just before our fifth and final child graduates from high school. What fun! For those of you who have considered continuing your own formal education, I would encourage you to go for it. There’s a program out there to meet just about any need, schedule or budget.
Whether or not you pursue additional formal education, I hope you will pursue being a lifelong learner. May you too know the joy of hearing your children ask, “Hey Dad, shouldn’t you be doing your homework instead of watching TV?”
