INTERVIEW: Unlocking the Power of Language Learning for Personal and Professional Growth

Updated: Jun 13

In a recent episode of the "You Belong in the C-suite" podcast, I had the pleasure of speaking with Dr. Laura Eigel about the power of language learning for adults, particularly busy professionals.

Our conversation delved into the challenges and rewards of acquiring a new language later in life and how it can impact personal and professional development.

Language Learning for Professionals: Promoting Autonomy, Authenticity, and Self-Awareness

As the founder of Fluency Lab, I've witnessed how learning a new language can promote autonomy and self-awareness to a new level.

As adults, we believe we know ourselves well enough, however, the process of learning a new language makes us rethink our beliefs on how our brain retains information.

During the episode, we talked about how by embracing the learning process and understanding your unique learning style, you can not only achieve fluency in a new language but also gain valuable insights that translate to other areas of your life and career.

During the podcast, Dr. Eigel and I discussed the importance of learning agility and how understanding your own learning style can benefit your personal and professional growth.

The Bravery and Rewards of Learning a New Language as an Adult

Learning a new language as an adult requires bravery, vulnerability, and a willingness to make mistakes. However, the rewards are immeasurable. Not only does language learning enhance cognitive abilities, memory, and cultural understanding (the list actually goes on), but it also boosts confidence, empathy, and adaptability – all essential qualities for effective leadership and success in today's global workforce.

At Fluency Lab, we've created a method that blends practical language use with engaging content specifically designed for professionals. By leveraging your existing skills and strengths, you can achieve fluency efficiently and effectively, opening up new opportunities for personal and professional growth.
