DAME JUDI DENCH
“ I think that learning at work is something that we probably think we all do, but sometimes we get stuck in a rut and,
without realizing it,
forget to learn
something new and
different. It's good to
ask questions, be inquisitive and learn things as we go about our daily business.”
What This Means
We don’t put effort in learning at work.
Many opportunities may have gone without even knowing it.
