My guest for this week’s episode of the Future of Work podcast is Michael Karnjanaprakorn, CEO and Co-Founder of Skillshare. For those of you looking to adapt and learn new skills, you will find this conversation quite interesting. Skillshare is an on-line platform where you can learn almost anything you need to stay relevant in today’s workplace. Michael and I look at why the future of work is all about teaching yourself and not relying on education institutions or organizations to teach us the skills, information and knowledge that we might need to be successful in life.
Why is it that we should be teaching ourselves? Michael talks about the common problems with learning and acquiring skills today. We look at the skills gap, gamification in the workplace, how demographics are changing, and what the future of learning is going to look like. Michael shares his insights taking a look at why creativity is so crucial for the future of work and what learning is going to look like in the next couple of years. Take a moment and listen to Michael’s thought-provoking insights into the future of learning, which I’m sure you are going to enjoy!
