Skills Strategy Accelerator

Make sense of the complex world of skills-first and accelerate your skills strategy in an energizing and supportive peer collaboration program.

Who's the Accelerator for?

This program is for you if you’re:


🧭 not quite sure where to focus your skills effort with so many potential “next steps”

🤝 in search of thought partners to talk through your ideas and to feel supported 

📈 looking to fast track your grasp of the world of skills, frameworks, technologies + 

🥴 feeling overwhelmed by the complexity and scale of the skills challenge

⏳ wishing for time and space to focus and engage in strategic dialogue with peers

I felt accepted, valued, appreciated on the Skills Strategy Accelerator, like being part of a group of work colleagues who have known each other for a long time.I particularly appreciated the inclusive, participant centric way of designing, planning and conducting the sessions, the non judgemental open exchange climate and the opportunity to validate ideas in vivo.

The program provided me with a structure which allowed me to set a pace for working on the topic. It worked quite well, provided some useful perspectives and allowed me to validate one important aspect of my current work which allowed me to be clearer in my decision making process.
