Do you know what your audience’s e-learning priorities are for the year ahead?
Every year as SkillSoft looks back at the most popular corporate courseware across our many customers, I always find it fun to pick out the trends for the year ahead. 2009’s top 100 business skills courses included stand-by topics like Communication and Professional Development, but also showed strong use in the areas of Leadership and Management.
It is encouraging to me in these times to see companies and employees working on improving skills in these key areas. In terms of Professional Development, we can all benefit from brushing up our skills from time to time; especially when the going is rough. In today’s fast-paced competitive world, strong leaders with solid skills are a must for any company to survive and thrive.
As learning professionals, we have an ideal opportunity to make our employees – and our companies – stronger by providing the right mix of e-learning resources to target these and other training needs within the organization. Broad-based access to e-learning courseware for communication, professional development, office skills, and more can help every employee to achieve their personal best while targeted leadership skills training let you provide your current leaders and high-potential future leaders with tools to improve their talent.
And while you’re at it, don’t forget about yourself. What do you want to learn today? I’d love to hear from you in the comments section!
