779-Build Those Skills!
Episode Title: Build Those Skills!
Now that we know the skills of the future, how do we go about developing them? Here are three practical steps you can take, next on The Perna Syndicate.
Ep 779 show:
This is The Perna Syndicate—hello and welcome! When you break it down, there are three big ways to become more motivated to develop your power skills. These will make you more marketable as an employee, both today and in the future.
In a fast-changing environment, a growth mindset is crucial. Believing in your own ability to learn gives you greater opportunities to move forward with an evolving world—rather than play catchup after the fact.
Additionally, individuals must start tracking their learning like they track their health and wellness goals—by building a community to support their learning journey. We use technology to improve everything else in our lives, but we’ve yet to really tap into that potential in the world of learning. Surround yourself with people also looking to grow their skill sets.
Finally, it’s vital to see and celebrate tangible progress. We grow the most when we can see the value of our learning. Verified workforce credentials are one way to empower yourself to share your wins, feel supported, and support others in a lifelong learning journey.
By having a growth mindset, surrounding yourself with motivated people, and tracking your progress, you open yourself up to countless opportunities. Build those skills—and success will follow.
Thank you for tuning in today! I’m your host, Mark Perna, and I hope to see you back here tomorrow on The Perna Syndicate as we wrap up our discussion on the ‘power skills’ we all need. See you then!
