Do something different this holiday season by giving someone a gift that will keep giving. Give the gift of knowledge that will provide a long-lasting benefit and grow in value over time. Today so much effort and time are spent on being “in the moment”, with very little time spent on planning for the future. Everything has to happen now! "I want an answer to my work issue by clicking on this phone app – now!" Or, "I want a job paying more money because I want to live a certain lifestyle – now! Or, even better, I want the raise and promotion (that someone else worked hard to acquire) - now! Even though I feel I am the right candidate, so what I didn’t take the employee advancement courses at work that would have qualified me for the raise and promotion." I am sure that you've heard all of these scenarios before, ones that I have come across as a trainer with over 25 years of employee training and working as a freelancer facilitating computer literacy/Microsoft Office Application classes. Why not take this opportunity to empower someone (family member, friend, or co-worker) to help them help themselves. Show them you really care by helping them invest in building up their technology literacy? Give that person the “Gift of Knowledge” this holiday season.
