We appreciated the incredible energy Marti and our attendees brought to the webinar, and the Q&A session during the second half of the session left us with plenty of takeaways:

  • We are in a period of high-density learning so now is the time to experiment, measure and learn
  • The Career Agility Model can help support you as you move through your career by sharing ideas, testing and seeking feedback
  • Organizations should have a formal commitment to developing “power skills” - such as resilience, agility, communication, creativity and empathy - to support their staff and overall growth
  • With the shift to the “project economy”, even your job can be split into various projects; use each project to develop your skillset further
  • Cultivate an agile mindset by having hobbies, side gigs or continuing education and bring your learnings to your job
