Work Skills Keeping Up?

Tony Karrer

In New Work and New Work Skills , I discuss the fact that most of us have not participated in formal learning since college on foundational knowledge work skills - especially metacognitive skills. Most of us have strong skills in some areas and are much weaker in others simply due to the fact that we acquire our skills in completely ad hoc ways. Our work skills cannot sit still.

Develop Work Skills

Tony Karrer

That said, I think there is a tendency to lean on the skills that we are good at and not use other approaches when they are called for. Certainly helping to make it a natural part of work-flow to capture information in a way that helps the individual and the organization is the key. I don’t think the new work is about tests. If we want to teach new work we should embed more in complexity theory.

I’ve always felt L&D as a department was kind of forced into that space since that’s how traditional organizational design works; skills, tasks, departments, etc. But unlike Accounting or Marketing, “learning” doesn’t play nice with ROI.

The meta-program

Clark Quinn

It’s also about the learning to learn and work skills that accompany the foundational knowledge. It’s about ‘meta’ skills. Meta-skills, like learning to learn and learning to work well (21C skills), can’t be developed on their own. What skills?
