The entrepreneurial culture of the modern era is evolving. In this age of technological progress, jobs are being replaced as new roles are being created. Though counterintuitive, this is the case. Indeed. According to the 2018 Future of Jobs Report, the technology revolution will displace 75 million jobs while producing new ways of working and approximately 133 million new jobs.

Though counterintuitive, this is the case. Indeed. The secret to surviving in such a dynamic economy is to simply adapt. This makes it imperative for any organization to continually reskill and upskill its staff.

In the most recent episode of our podcast, Why Adapting Learning? we spoke with Kelly Palmer, the CLO of Degreed, about how businesses can encourage individuals to become agile learners who are constantly learning and, in the process, always upskilling and reskilling themselves.

Kelly has a distinguished background in learning and development, having held top leadership positions at companies like Sun Microsystems, Yahoo!, Linkedin, and, most recently, a Degreed as CLO.

She is trying to change how people learn all throughout the world. She is a co-author of The Expertise Economy, a workplace futurist, a well-known speaker, innovator, and practitioner.

Key Takeaways

Kelly thinks that education can alter people’s lives and the planet. She claims that in our mission to aid the world’s learning, we are all traveling together. She continues by saying that we are attempting to support one another as we move away from these outdated, outmoded modes of learning.
