The importance of upskilling in a digital world
Think of running a business like a competitive sport. If you want to be at the top of your game, you always have to strive for improvement to keep ahead of the curb.
Similarly, to gain that competitive edge over your competitors, it’s crucial to be at the forefront of learning and to develop the best talents internally. The best way to do so? By utilizing the best of what digital adoption has to offer and putting an action plan in place.
3 tips to stay at the forefront of learning
Entrepreneurs need to stay hungry and always never stop learning. Adrien shares some tips on how he adopts a learning mindset:
- Establish a culture of performance. Never take anything for granted. A high-performance culture ensures that your business is always prepared to take the next step for success.
- Always be curious. How do you overcome a crisis? More importantly, how do you do so in the most efficient manner possible? These are situations that only upskilling can best prepare you for.
- Facilitate effective communication. Communication is key, which is why it’s important to establish effective channels of communication so that everyone is kept up-to-date and able to learn from the best practices.
Upskilling is more accessible now than ever
Take Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) for instance. These platforms have surged over the past years to become a major driving force for learning. With MOOC, you now have access to knowledge and courses from top universities all over the world.
On top of that, there are so many other channels to access knowledge from such as podcasts or online videos on streaming platforms.
Now, there is no reason to not be upskilling with the convenience of digital adoption.
