INTRODUCTIONThe concept of self managed learning is known as the process in which individualsportray various techniques of learning in an organisation or it could also relate to the longterm development in career. It is even about preplanning goals with the process of evaluatingthe main aim of learning and then coming to a process for achieving those aims. A personlearns these things by using various ways that can be altered through culture, behaviour,personality and perceptions (Vetere and et.al., 2016). The paper below is giving a briefdiscussion on the various methods to self managed learning for increasing development byassessing various approaches of its learning and how it is advantageous to the individual aswell as the organisation. The organisation which has been adopted to discuss this concept isknown as Travelodge.This paper explains my own personal skills and the competencies of Travelodge and itsstandards and objectives. Personal development needs have also been determined in thispaper. Lastly, the report also gives solutions that occur at the organisation as well as thesuitable channels of communication for having an interaction with people at a different level.It also discusses the importance of time management and its strategies.TASK 11.1 Approaches to self-managed learningIndividual can learn through research that they carry out either as part of their work orstudies. Also, there are various techniques individuals can learn for doing the research.

Also,such seminars and conferences help enhancing the ability of an individual to speak inpublic and develop their presentation skills which is highly required in corporate world(Busse, Aboneh and Tefera, 2014). For the staff of Travelodge hotel this would be the bestsource of learning and it is very effective to learn as the experts train in the seminars faceto face and also feedback is taken from the learners through which any improvement ifneeded in the learning process can be done. 1
Social network – The other way to self learning is to socialize. There are many differentsocial networking sites like Twitter, Facebook, My year book, My Space etc where peopletext and share various things by spending an increasing portion or their time. This isparticularly the case if people share the knowledge and thoughts through bulletin boardsand forums (Nicholls, 2014).

By applying the knowledge gained from otherpeople to their own lives individual may succeed in their careers. Internet – Internet is the most common source of gaining knowledge these days.
