Equip yourself with the critical skills to supercharge your work performance and enhance your long-term career prospects
You can’t skip the journey…but you can accelerate it
During any absent-minded scroll through Twitter these days, you are likely to encounter a tweet with a structure like this.
I launched, built and sold seven $1bn start-ups in 3 years.
I’m sharing 10 things I learnt the hard way, so you don’t have to.
This type of tweet suggests that fulfilment can be attained instantaneously by standing on the shoulders of supposed giants. That it’s possible to short-cut some of the tough stuff in life.
This philosophy bleeds into other areas of our lives. We expect rapid promotions, express delivery and immediate gratification in personal and professional settings. In the era of Google, Deliveroo, Klarna and Tinder, we’re used to having instant choice and constant availability. However this ‘silver bullet’ mindset neglects a critical component. In our haste to reach the promised land, this desire for instant success denigrates the value of the learning process. Despite the Twittersphere’s simplifications, we all know that it’s the journey that offers the richest experiences, not the destination.
Challenges; old and new We now face particular modern work pressures, such as leading teams in hybrid environments, structuring your days and managing the impact of technological distraction. These combine with age-old challenges, including working effectively with others, self-development, workload management and avoiding stress and burnout.
Businesses must balance these development needs with the demands of their day to day responsibilities. It’s time-consuming to design and provide learning programmes that engage, excite and inspire teams.
Employers want immediate improvement in their teams.
Employees want immediate improvement in their skillset and prospects.
But developing the range of skills needed to flourish in modern work is no quick fix.
You can’t skip the journey. But it is possible to accelerate the process.

But it can be hard to know where to start. Depending on your role, you’ll need industry knowledge, technical qualifications and accumulated wisdom as a starting point.
