|Do you usually attended seminars or coursework to advance your professional work or would you consider yourself a more self-taught person?
Mostly workshops or mentors have been how I learned.
Both. I frequently attend the seminar and workshop, but I sometime also feel to be self-taught person.
Not really. To find yourself you need to work with yourself. If you want to learn the other people's styles and techniques, then go to seminars and study how to be 'them,' if that's your goal. I think there's a difference between wanting to be 'like' someone and 'be' him or her, practicing their tips-n-tricks. As for me, all I need is FREE time to sit down and explore the inner world of my own self, creating my personal sci-fi universe with its own science, technology, history, culture, spirituality, etc. Techniques can be learned, skills can be honed, but when it comes to talents--you are the goldmine that must be explored--not someone else's mind. I'm truly sorry if that disappoints you, because I mean it as the greatest encouragement in the world. Besides, it's much cheaper to 'study yourself' than to attend pricey seminars, workshops, and so on. YOU have everything you need inside yourself. Just dig deeper into your heart, soul, spirit, brains--whatever you think holds the key to your success. It's within you, not somewhere outside, trust me.
Well, maybe it's OK to visit seminars on distribution and self-promotion, if you don't have a talent agent, but most professionals don't want to waste their time in 'businessing' their latent. They leave the agencies to do it, because life is short and you can't be everybody and everything. You gotta be YOU, creating your stuff rather than learning how to market it! In my opinion, these are two different professions.
Now go and write or produce something that would inspire millions to think.
I signed up seminar for all the information I needed, such as Energy Saving Project with Edison, Solar Panel installation class, etc.
I always try to learn and study on line when I need something quick.
As I stated before, I try to attend as many professional conferences as possible, and as many teleconferences as I can. I also read on-line newsletters from many ADHD sources that I subscribe to. Having ADHD gives me a certain "knowledge" that others do not have, but I still like to know what else might be out there.
I attend to eveerything and try to learn from them myself
I like attending seminars and events and meeting new people
I would most certainly endorse attending seminars and online coursework to advance my profession. I also try to use a lot of common sense which goes a long way. Stay Focus and Quick Thinking.
I am more of a self-taught person, though I have had some great mentors and peers that have affected my thought process.
I didn't formally study to be an actor - I've pretty much learned on the job over the last 20 years. I don't know if that's necessarily a bad thing though. Like everything, there are bonuses and drawbacks in both approaches to the profession. Learning on the job means that I didn't arrive with any preconceived notions of how things ought to work, which potentially makes it easier for me to roll with the punches as each new job introduces me to new challenges and rewards. On the flip side, I missed out on learning in depth about the history of drama, or stage make up, or how to file a tax return. I wouldn't have been averse to going to train - I just couldn't afford it when I had the opportunity and now I can't afford it because I've got a mortgage!
field training and still keep updated on new materials and better ways to apply them
I am a self-taught person
I do all the time. I attend the SMART ART every year and actually won an award in 2008 for my website Infertility Answers. (ART stands for Assisted Reproductive Technology) I also am and member and attend the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) meeting each year plus every other year I try to attend and Egg Donor Conference in Charleston. On top of those conferences and meetings I attend webinars online that touch on all the topics I am interested in from Infertility issues to marketing and business development.
I have attended several seminars and have taken courses in advancement of my professional work. I have also consulted and have taken internet courses, and have been mentored by an elder. I must say however, that my intuitive impressions are mostly self taught and my learning journey begun at a very young age due to a near death that I experienced...
