Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever’ is a famous quote from Gandhi and is as relevant today as it was when it was first said. Disruptive technologies, changing workplaces, changing political environments and volatile economic climates mean that adaptability is a key skill in the workplace today. Information and knowledge professionals are no stranger to this, indeed for more than twenty years, it has been an important survival skill in the sector. Part of being adaptable is the drive to always be open to learning through looking at new ways of working, being innovative and staying relevant in a constantly changing environment. Those organizations that realize the value and importance of continuous learning also understand that making mistakes is a valuable part of the learning process and work to create a blameless culture and even celebrate mistakes.
