A Better Future Awaits: Explore Skills Mapping

"One must first understand before one can do." — Murray Johannsen

 Discover Level I Learning On the Bronze Plan

Member Highlights
Great leadership requires in-depth understanding of people. This includes basic psychological insights. Greater than you find in the b-schools. For requires enough wisdom to understand these two fundamental words of truth -- ones have been around for thousands of years, "Know thyself."

One has to imagine a better future before making it happen. We can create a better future, but without a map, we are forever lost. Life gives us that option. Don't let that happen.

Skill mapping gets you thinking about you, what you need to do for a better life, a better future. It’s designed to be tangible, actionable and practical. If you don't know what you want out of work, it's unlikely you'll get it.

Not mapping skills to your future roles most likely means you won't be ready; if fact, you won't even be considered by upper management for what should have been yours if only you had prepared for it. Doors of opportunity open all the time, this book prepares you to walk through them.

“Our knowledge can only be finite, while our ignorance must necessarily be infinite.” — Karl Popper, Austrian philosopher

 2. The Wisdom Program: A Primer on How Be Wise


 think we would all agree, very few politicians or business types are wise. And yet, for those who wish to lead, it's vital for them to guide followers on a path that is wise. It's thought wisdom can be developed, though it may take many years. 
But what is most disturbing is that in these days of exploding knowledge, so few people think about developing it. I cannot remember during my entire MBA program of any professor who even brought up the word in class. Not once.
So, while you have to know about finance, accounting and marketing, wisdom is irrelevant. And I suspect sciences are not that much different than business.
This consists of a series of four videos that discuss the nature of wisdom, where it may be found and where it is not. 
Video 1: The Development of Wisdom: Overview (11 minutes)
Video 2: Where Wisdom is Not Normally Found (so you won't waste your time) (9 minutes)
Video 3: Three Classic Methods of Learning It (19 minutes)
Video 4: The Mental Processes Associated with It (26 minutes)

The Dual Track is our term for the two essential drivers needed for the skill-based learning:

  • Skill-based theory, and 
  • Skillful practice.

These are actually a set of learning methodologies that must be kept in mind to successfully implement skill-based learning programs.

Short-Courses are self-paced learning based on a subject.
