Re-Skilling and Up-Skilling

Skill means the ability to do something correctly, it is the most important part of any body’s life. We all are soon moving into the world of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and we all should know that it is going to create a huge impact about up-skilling and re-skilling of the workforce. Let’s see what it is…

An individual with a fixed mindset believes that high performance is based on talent, which is purely the result of natural ability. Someone has a mindset to grow, on the other hand, believes that talent alone is not enough for a person to grow in life. Self-evaluation is necessary to learn from one’s mistakes and improve their performance in the process.

An example of a growth mindset can be Microsoft’s CEO – Satya Nadella.

Nadella, joined a software company in 2014 and has taken it to be one of the top three most valued companies in the world, let hear it from his own words…

i.e, Nadella said they all wanted to look like the smartest person in the room and so didn’t want to hear about any mistakes. They’d become complacent, which stops the bottom-up flow of innovation, and so the culture needed to change from being an organization of know-it-all to one of ‘learn-it-all’….

He told them ‘we need to self-reflect because we’re not good at collaboration and we’re defensive of new views’ – and that’s always a good starting point.

So, always find time to learn something new every day and try to brush up the skills you already have.

The future belongs to those who learn more and present it in a creative way.
