In a workplace with five generations, there’s one skill that’s important no matter your age: continuous learning. The Upskilling Imperative is a road map for anyone who wants to build learning into the flow of work, foster growth throughout every stage of an employee’s career, and ultimately use continuous upskilling as a competitive advantage.”

Every top performer I’ve ever met always has one thing in common: they’re lifetime learners. Rather than settling after formal education, they embrace a love of learning for the long run. Shelley Osborne’s The Upskilling Imperative gives a fresh and honest take on how organizations can harness that mentality and cultivate top performers every day.”
