Richard Branson: Training Employees + Continuous Learning = Success..!

Richard Branson gives crucial importance to continuous learning for doing business successfully. Your employees also have an important role to it:

** Richard Branson on How to Train Your Employees [ Entrepreneur …

When a company is small (just 30 people), what’s the best way to train new staff and help them to remain passionate about their work?

There is always something new to learn. The day you stop learning is the day you stop living. We should all pick up new skills, ideas, viewpoints and ways of working every day. That said, the first goal of any new business is simply to survive — you need to prove that your business model works. One of the best ways to do this is by hiring excellent people who believe in your company and share your goals, and then by helping them to learn and improve their skills. This isn’t optional: If your best people aren’t growing in their careers as your business gains traction and expands, they will quickly lose enthusiasm for their work. And before you know it, you’ll be dealing with unsatisfied customers as well as unsatisfied employees. Your employees’ desire to learn gives you and other entrepreneurs a competitive advantage over larger companies. Small firms are usually new, so they attract people who are eager to try fresh approaches and have great ideas about how to do things differently, rather than employees who are working toward attaining a specific post or title.

18 Tips For Success From Richard Branson – Business Insider

Richard Branson founded Virgin in 1970 at the age of 20, and he hasn’t looked back. He’s the only entrepreneur to have built eight separate billion-dollar companies in eight different industries — and he did it all without a degree in business. ”Had I pursued my education long enough to learn all the conventional dos and don’ts of starting a business I often wonder how different my life and career might have been,” he writes in his new book, Like a Virgin: Secrets They Won’t Teach You at Business School.  We’ve compiled some of the best tips from his book here.

Getting familiar with “The Base” Virgin Atlantic’s training center, with a given attention to realistic training:

Virgin Atlantic’s top marketer Simon Lloyd on making the airline ‘irresistible’ – Marketing

The interview is drawing to a close when a blood-curdling scream suddenly rings out. A woman cries: ‘Help! My hand is trapped!’ Rather than rush to assist this damsel in distress, Virgin Atlantic marketing director Simon Lloyd looks momentarily confused before continuing with his train of thought. Before anyone accuses the ex-BBC and Nokia marketer of heartlessness, I should clarify that the interview is taking place at the airline’s dramatically titled training center  The Base, a kind of air-disaster theme park complete with smoke-filled cabins and emergency chutes. Seemingly urgent cries for help have become a daily feature of life at the facility. We, however, are sat in the rather more plush surroundings of Virgin Atlantic’s mock Upper Class cabin, where a few years ago Daniel Craig filmed scenes for the James Bond movie Quantum of Solace.

Finally, by training your employees through opportunities of life-long learning offers you the best opportunity to learn by doing, and also learn for doing new things. Richard Branson is a live example!
