Upskill for impact

Upskilling is concerned with building the capabilities people need to produce outcomes. When we need every action our people to take to make a difference, upskilling isn’t just about how people perform a task. That’s why we say upskilling is upping your ability to make an impact.

Where job skilling – and reskilling is concerned with equipping people with the knowledge and abilities needed to complete job tasks, upskilling is its results focused counterpart. It focuses on the context in which people work, making them critical to successful organisational transformations. Without upskilling, people are left to rely on knowledge, experiences and mindsets that may be out step with the organisation’s requirements, undermining the ability for the transformation to achieve its objectives.

Five upskills to UPLEVEL your impact in the digital economy.

Empathy as a capability is not the same as empathy, the emotion. We’re referring to conative empathy. It is the ability to move from feeling to response and action.

It’s a VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) world, and that means we don’t know what’s around the corner, don’t have all the answers, and can’t be put off by the challenges.

Digital capability comes from having a digital mindset – understanding the role technology plays – and digital competence – the skills to apply technological solutions

Thinking approaches such as visual, design, divergent and contingent are the foundation for effective innovation, agility, collaboration and creative problem-solving.

Another way of saying getting things done, hustling requires high levels of persuasive ability, negotiation, confidence, communication, and a bias for action.

Grow your impact with UPLEVEL

The connective and processing power of digital technology has made impact a uniquely 21st century necessity. People armed with their internet-enabled devices expect interactions to be personalised, solutions to be immediate, brands to stand for something worthwhile and organisations to intuitively understand their every need.

With the stakes for success so high, organisations cannot afford their investment in technology to be undermined by a workforce unable to deliver on these expectations. 

That’s why we developed UPLEVEL, a program that accelerates results by giving learners the exact skills needed from digital – or digitally transforming organisations. It places the learning activities in the real world, giving you the ability to turn your actions and interactions into outcomes.

UPLEVEL combines self-paced learning materials, regularly updated content and a community learning format to provide the multiple inputs conducive to effective learning. It offers a safe, supportive and confidential environment necessary when you need learning to be a real-life, not just classroom, activity.

The real world, action-based approach to learning limits the loss of learning that normally occurs during the classroom-to-workplace transition, making UPLEVEL a cost- and time-effective learning solution.

Learning format

UPLEVEL’s core materials are delivered over six weeks, however, they can be completed at your own pace. This allows you to spend more time where you need it, and return to topics as often as you like.

In each lesson, you will be assigned activities to complete. Each activity is designed to encourage self-learning. Experience develops as you work out how the material applies to your situation, then taking action accordingly. This helps you build a habit of learning practice, which in turn builds your capacity to adapt to any situation, including the fast-paced, ever-changing digital one.

Community-based learning means you will be able to interact, ask questions of and participate in activities with others. This not only helps embed the skills, it keeps the content contemporary, topical and relevant to real situations. When it comes to building capability, sharing knowledge and experience with others is invaluable.

In addition, new content will be continuously added from experts, consultants and coaches, covering a wide range of topics related to building our personal impact.
