Skills Odyssey II

What Is The Skills Odyssey?

The world is STILL atwitter with the skills conversation—one that started before the pandemic, but was undoubtedly accelerated by it. Orgs are more interested than ever in understanding what skills their employees have, which skills they need, and how those skills can deliver results.   

In our last podcast season, Skills Odyssey, we spoke with several leaders who had already jumped into the skills fray with both feet. The level of optimism surrounding skills and the strategies these orgs are adopting, left us both surprised and thrilled.  

So in Skills Odyssey II, we plan to continue this journey of exploration. We’ll be talking to leaders in employee development, performance, people analytics, and DEIB who have adapted a skills mindset and have begun to implement changes based on it. We’ll learn why they’ve embarked, how they’re starting, and what they hope to accomplish, and the successes they’ve been having. More importantly, we’ll dive into the challenges they’ve faced along the way and seek practical, tried-and-tested ways to overcome those challenges. Have you been working on a Skills strategy for your own org? Come, learn with us.
