Attend Conferences and Workshops
Yes, you can find almost anything on YouTube, Reddit and Quora today. However, skill development is much easier when you have an ordered way to learn the skill. Conferences and workshops will give you a structure and a community of other people interested in the same skills as you. They are a great way to learn new skills quickly.
Find a Mentor or Coach
Great mentors and coaches can help you learn more skills more quickly and effectively than trying to do it on your own. Mentor’s can show you how they picked up skills and the lessons they learned. Coaches can help facilitate your skill development by raising your awareness of where there are opportunities to develop new skills or strengthen existing skills.
