The Skillsoft Leadership & Business content team is pleased to continue to bring you relevant content designed for the modern, digital learner. In April, we announced the availability of our Digital Leadership Self-Assessment (Advance Release)!
Developed in partnership with MIT Sloan Management Review and based on the work of Dr. Jerry Kane, as outlined in his award-winning book, The Technology Fallacy (MIT Press, 2019), this online self-assessment is now available to Skillsoft Leadership Development Program (SLDP) powered by MIT SMR customers on our Percipio platform Digital maturity refers to how well a company—its people, culture, processes, and infrastructure—can leverage the opportunities afforded by technology, both inside and outside the organization. Read more about Dr. Kane's work and his collaboration with Skillsoft to create The Digital Leadership Self-Assessment (Advance Release) in his guest blog: Digital Transformation: The Medium is Not the Message.
This 60+ question, online self-assessment determines a leaner’s score on 11 critical digital leadership competencies and provides personalized learning recommendations to improve digital maturity. Then, individual scores can be aggregated to determine an organization’s overall level of digital maturity.For more information or a demo, please reach out to your Skillsoft Sales Representative.
Our first two of five Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) courses were also released into our Business library! Both Workplace
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Action and Moving From Bias To Inclusion in A
DEI Journey are available now. We have designed these courses in partnership with experts such as La’Wana Harris, Su Joun, and Risha Grant, to
educate on facts and inspire through storytelling. Through real
in-person interviews and roundtable discussions, these courses ignite
emotion, conversation, and learning for our customers at all stages of
their DEI journey! The balance of three more courses will be available in May.
In April, we continued to bring you a robust calendar of Leadercamps and Live Events! Our two-part April Leadercamp, Addressing Anxiety & Burnout, featured Ellen Hendriksen and Morra Aarons-Mele In this powerful, two-day Leadercamp series, our speakers gave a close look at the burnout that is so prevalent among us — and showed how to come out on the other side, ready to face your challenges.
