Knowledge Sharing is a Sign of High Skilled People

Everyone says that Knowledge is for sharing only. But with my experience of working with various corporates, I can say that I have also heard these statements like:

  • If I will share the knowledge with my colleagues/subordinates, they will become smarter and will become a threat to my job
  • I have acquired this knowledge with much hard work, so I can’t just share it like that

I started wondering that though these arguments are also valid to some extent but then why some people are able to share the knowledge despite these arguments.

After studying the various personalities, I realize that knowledge sharing is usually a trait of highly skilled and knowledgable people.

  • Continuous Learning – People with high skills keep on acquiring new skills and knowledge and hence sharing knowledge does not appear to threat to them
  • Inspiration: During their journey, they have learned from such open-minded people who were even more knowledgeable and skilled yet they kept sharing their knowledge wholeheartedly. Hence these mentors inspire more and more to share knowledge

Average skilled and knowledgeable people don’t upgrade themselves no continuous basis and hence they want to live their life on learning that they acquired many years ago.

Organizational Culture also plays a crucial role there. There are organizations that are able to create a culture where people share knowledge and there are organizations that still find it difficult.

In my personal journey, where my environment wanted me not to share the knowledge which might be considered business secrets, but still I made this choice that if I listen to such argument, I may get some benefit in short term but in long term, I would get into “Average Skill Mindset”.

Hence I consciously make a choice to follow the traits of “Highly Skilled People”.
