The Upskilling Imperative: 5 Ways to Make Learning Core to the Way We Work
August 24, 2020
A guide to building a learning culture that can sustain careers—and companies—for decades, from a top executive at Udemy, the world’s largest online education platform.
Anyone in today’s workplace knows that keeping up with the pace of change can feel impossible. In this book, the vice president of learning at Udemy explains how very concept and nature of workplace learning needs to change, too—and shares how every worker and manager can benefit from a new way of thinking that integrates continuous learning into their everyday workflow.
In The Upskilling Imperative, Shelley Osborne shows why the old model of front-loading education at higher-ed institutions—and then occasionally herding employees into seminar rooms—is no longer enough. She reveals the five main components of a learning culture and details strategies every organization can implement to build learning as a core competency to drive business performance. Shelley explains how overwhelmed employees can get comfortable with rapid change and how leaders can develop the necessary skills to usher in learning as a transformative force in their organizations.
