Charles Zulu says knowledge sharing is cardinal in human development.
But sharing is sometimes more demanding than giving.
“There are a lot of people who are knowledgeable but they are useless because they keep the knowledge within them. So once you learn something learn to share with other people,” says Zulu.
Sharing knowledge has helped mankind survive and evolve into the intelligent and productive species he is today.
In the animal kingdom and indeed in business, knowledge sharing can make the difference between survival and extinction.
We think the highest level in political thought was reached when some human beings realised that the fruits of knowledge and experience of one should reach all others. Those who know have the duty to teach those who don’t know. And those who don’t know have the duty to learn from those who know.
It is said that in vain have you acquired knowledge if you have not imparted it to others.
Sharing one’s knowledge is a way to achieve immortality.
If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it. A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.
One can only attain knowledge with the help of those who possess it. This must be understood from the very beginning. One must learn from him or her who knows.
It is said that knowledge is like money: to be of value it must circulate, and in circulating it can increase in quantity and, hopefully, in value.
In today’s environment, hoarding knowledge ultimately erodes your power.
If you know something very important, the way to get power is by actually sharing it.
Often, we are too slow to recognise how much and in what ways we can assist each other through sharing expertise and knowledge.
Sharing will enrich everyone with more knowledge.
Knowledge increases by sharing but not by saving.
Sharing your knowledge with others does not make you less important.
Keeping knowledge erodes power. Sharing is the fuel to your growth engine. Sharing is caring. Sharing knowledge can seem like a burden to some but on the contrary, it is a reflection of teamwork and leadership.
In teaching others, we teach ourselves.
