Beyond Reskilling Investing resilience for uncertain futures
Executive Leadership, Singapore 2
I look forward to seeing you at our next meeting on Friday, 18th September 2020.
Focus Area: Human Capital
Meeting Topic: "Beyond Reskilling - Investing in resilience for uncertain futures"
Speaker: Adrian Ole, Deloitte
Date: 18th September 2020 from 11.00-13.00 (meeting room opens at 10.45 for networking)
Reskilling alone may be a strategic dead end. Renewing workers' skills is a tactical necessity, but reskilling is not a sufficient path forward by itself. The skill shortage is too great, the investments are too small. The pace of change is too rapid, quickly rendering even "successful" reskilling efforts obsolete. What is needed is a worker development approach that considers both the dynamic nature of jobs and the equally dynamic potential of people to reinvent themselves. To do this effectively, organisations should focus on building workers' resilience for both the short and the long term - a focus that can allow organisations to increase their own resilience in the face of constant change.
During this interactive discussion, Adrian Ole, Executive Director at Deloitte Consulting will be sharing the results of some recent research and discussing how organisations can address this challenge in Asia.
In addition, we hope to have a "Wise Crowd" session where one of our members shares a current challenge or opportunity. The group will then discuss the challenge and try to provide input and ideas on a way forward based on the group's own extensive experience.
We look forward to seeing you virtually and hope that you join prepared to share your experience with your fellow members. We expect that at the end of the session, you will take away some new insights and have some ideas and actions to take back into your organisation. If you have any questions or thoughts about how we can make this session even more impactful, please feel free to contact me.
