UPSKILLING FOR UNCERTAINTY


Pandemic. Protests. Recession. The year 2020 will undoubtedly go down in history as the year that changed our world in unprecedented and profound ways that we are barely beginning to understand. We are now faced with managing old systems that are collapsing quickly, while simultaneously struggling to define new models that will carry us boldly into the future.

The world needs an army of skilled problem-solvers who understand and can communicate the magnitude and complexity of the new challenges we face, and who possess the cutting-edge skills and creativity to think beyond boundaries to develop new products, services and processes that will meet the demands of a society gripped by increasing turmoil and uncertainty.

T25 Mobile MicroCourses provide a unique and highly engaging learning experience necessary for employees to acquire essential technology and problem-solving skills, taught through the lens of the most pressing real-world problems impacting society and businesses today. Our data-driven, remote-friendly format facilitates frictionless, flexible and fast learning for the new hybrid workforce (work from home and office workers) and includes virtual think tank sessions with industry experts for maximum engagement and growth.

NEW CHALLENGES
REQUIRE NEW THINKING

Courses on the real-world applications of technologies in business and government, focusing on problem-solving and "power skills" needed to adapt in today’s workforce.

T25 Mobile MicroCourses provides upskilling for professionals seeking to understand how disruptive technologies will change their work, how they can prepare for (and maximize opportunities from) these changes, and how to create a strategic roadmap for growth that will keep them ahead of the game, give them a competitive edge, and lead them into the future confidently and wisely. 

At its core, T25 MicroCourses is based on the concept of always expanding your knowledge (continuous learning) to gain new skills and expertise in various and creative ways (workplace training, self-directed learning, informal and formal learning, linear learning, artistic endeavors). This means viewing personal and professional experiences as potential learning exercises and re-examining assumptions, values, methods, policies, and practices.

It's about regularly asking, "Who am I, what do I want, and what do I have to offer my employer/employees, my local community and the world?", exploring the possibilities through extended learning, and then bringing the results back into the workplace and your life. 

With T25 Mobile MicroCourses, participants don’t just learn new technology skills. They learn how to think critically about how to apply new skills to real world problems.

 

FOR COMPANIES: THERE ARE NO EASY SOLUTIONS

Develop a Workforce of Skilled Problem-Solvers

Recent research by Deloitte indicates that organizations must help employees figure out how to get the training they need for themselves, from both inside and outside the company, in order to continue to grow and remain engaged. 

The pandemic has ignited an even greater sense of urgency for companies to upskill and reskill employees for accelerating changes happening across all industries as the world adapts to the new distance economy. The good news is, according to research, workers are very aware of the need to adapt and upskill immediately, and are eager to do so.

We develop unique, innovative learning experiences that deliver relevant content quickly to a broad, diverse base of employees throughout the organization. We give employees the precise information they need in a format that's easy to digest. And, with our virtual think tanks, we create a safe space for them to engage with each other and learn together, while apart. We develop content that delivers a high rate of satisfactory completion and, for managers, data that provides insights on how employees might be thinking about the challenges facing organizations and how managers might discover the untapped talents that every employee has.

Connect with us today to learn how we can help your company to foster a culture of data-driven, independent learning and inclusive innovation that will empower employees to participate in building the organization of the future.
