New Work Talks – Growing Skills to Drive Traction

Meeet-Mitte, Tuesday, 10th of December 2019, 7:00 –  09:30 PM:

Matching soft skills, hard skills and strategy – can you do it?

And most importantly…. should you?

Alignment, soft skills and the lot are all nice topics to talk about, but when it boils down to getting stuff done, do you need them?

And if so, what do you need exactly?

There’s a lot going into the discussion – skills building and L&D taps into strategy, budget, organization, company culture… basically just like everything else about New Work it’s part of a massive bundle we need to unravel.

So we need a starting point, and this necessarily needs to be talking to someone who has worked with skill building, and has done so with an eye on its impact on different topics.

In this new edition of the New Work Talk series, we’ll be doing exactly that.

We’ll have four experts on stage, sharing their four perspectives and lessons learnt. Specifically, we’ll be talking about how different organizations go about developing their people, how that process is matched with their strategy, what are good or bad ways to go about it.

After the event you’ll be able to look at the topic with new eyes and consideration for other people’s point of view and reasoning – giving you an easier time when called to deal with skills and strategy.
