Sharing your expertise can help you get the recognition that you deserve. By sharing your professional expertise, you are bringing attention to your work and your knowledge. This can truly motivate you to continue doing the quality of work you are doing and serves as a motivator when your coworkers and management give you the credit you have been longing for. The more you share, the most others will recognize your knowledge and value what you do.
New Ideas and Networking
Another great benefit of sharing your knowledge and expertise is to create networking opportunities and generate new ideas. Networking can bring about a world of opportunities by meeting new people and sharing what you know with them.

Networking also brings about the opportunity to work with others that you haven’t worked with before. Working with new people often brings about new ideas and opportunities. Creativity is at its best when people work together.
