The knowledge you have is an exceptionally powerful gift that is worth sharing. While accepting the fact that you are the sole proprietor of the knowledge you possess, it is important that you don’t keep it to yourself. The most interesting thing about sharing your knowledge is that it helps you in several ways apart from helping others.
According to specialists, your knowledge gets sharpened every time you share it. In other words, the more you share, the sharper your knowledge will become.
When you share your experiences with others, you are more likely to engage in constructive discussions. During these discussions, you are more likely to improve your knowledge by hearing, seeing and experiencing new things.
Soon after you start to share your knowledge, others will start to consider you as a subject matter expert (SME) or a knowledge hub in the respective area of expertise. In the end, you will be recognized as a leader and a reliable person who can help others. Over time, such an approach can generate a significant number of followers to you.
Suppose that you work with a team, and you tend to share your knowledge with the rest of the members; your professional recognition will increase significantly. Gradually, you will become an (the) essential member of the team and the entire organization. The word will spread out faster than you imagine and more opportunities in the relevant industry will anticipate you.
How should you share your knowledge?
Thanks to the development of technology, there is no longer shortages of options to consider in terms of sharing of your knowledge.
One of the most cost-effective and easiest ways to share your knowledge with the others is to start a blog. You can use audio, video and written contents on your blog and the interested readers might consider your blog as a precious source of knowledge.
You should expose yourself to local business groups and even organizers who are related to your sector. This approach can offer you opportunities to take part in conferences and meetings. You can also consider holding a seminar by yourself.
A well-constructed newsletter with regular circulation can be a very useful source of knowledge to your audience. It is better if you can make the circulation regular; for instance, a biweekly newsletter.
Your social media profile is an exceptionally effective tool in the context of sharing what you know. Regularly posting of valuable content can be really useful for the ones that follow you.
Besides, you shouldn’t forget to meet people in person whenever it is possible and engage in constructive discussions (probably after the events you take part). Although social media exposes you to a larger audience, meeting in person is incredibly effective in most of the cases.
