Digital Skills for the Future of Work: Mindful Colleague
Show Notes

In our third season, we will explore the new Profile of a Lifelong Learner, a framework that defines the digital skills needed for success in the future of work. Released in late 2020, the Profile includes five Features that unpack the intersection of digital and lifelong learning skills. Nested under each Feature are three Practices - habits that adult learners, job seekers, and workers should develop to thrive at work, in school, and in community life. 

Our hope is that the research-backed Profile will help job seekers, workers, and job coaches build new skills that effectively prepare today’s workers for the jobs of today and tomorrow. Check out to explore the framework and learn about the methodology for how it was developed. 

In this episode, we explore the fifth of five Profile Features: Mindful Colleague. Joining us for the conversation are two of our SkillRise advisors: 

  • Anson Green, Senior Manager, Economic Opportunity, Tyson Foods
  • Alexandra (Alex) Foster, Vice President of People Experience, Kelly

In this episode, we talk about:

  • The multiplying effect of collaborative learning at work
  • How technology can enhance teams’ ability to learn and collaborate
  • The role of digital tools in supporting more equitable access to learning and advancement opportunities
  • How leaders can use technology to empower staff with new responsibilities and growth experiences
  • The mindsets that lead to effective adoption and use of technology
