Traditionally, most businesses adopt a hierarchical approach to leadership with a “leader” seen above others. This hierarchy can lead to a one-sided flow of information and a closed channel of communication. On the other hand, peer-to-peer relationships allow information to flow in both directions and is essential for building new leaders. Here, Ryan Rock, Ankeny, Iowa entrepreneur, elaborates on the importance of peer-to-peer communication.
Why Use Peer-to-Peer Teaching?
Typically, the assumption made in a company using a hierarchy is that those in leadership roles have knowledge that their employees need. They don’t consider that the flow of information and learning can function as a two-way street that enriches all.
For instance, in a traditional hierarchical system, leaders may have false assumptions about the best way to perform tasks. Feedback from those who take a hands-on approach and actually do the job can better inform decisions made by leadership and management.
