This is actually a really good question. Unfortunately, my field is "tech" and by definition engineers need to keep improving and keep learning: "be a curious learning machine".
What I personally do (isn't the same for everybody) is allocate 40 minutes a day to read and learn new concepts. However, the best way of learning is doing. After reading, I tend to create a small project to showcase what I've learnt.
Another good thing to do is being open to criticism and to different point of view. Don't let your ego, your title or anything else distract you; I've seen this happening. A senior/VP/CEO not listening to anybody just because the position on the command chain. As a note, you can learn a ton just listening to people. However, this is very tricky because you can't just "accept" everything. It's more complicated. You should defend your ideas, listen to other data points and finally, reevaluate your approach. Ultimately, you can't seek consensus.

Jake recommends the following next steps:
- Allocate between 20 minutes- 1 hour to read and learn
- Apply what you've learnt on a small project
- Be improving constantly
- Disagree and commit
- Have a backbone
