According to an article in The Washington Post, unemployment numbers took a surprising jump over the past month. This concern about the continuing rocky return of the American economy has caused a scramble for any semblance of job security. While the unemployment rate rose to 9.1 percent for the month of May, the affected areas of the economy could possibly be spread across the spectrum of jobs.
This is obviously concerning news for executives. One of the main ways in which many executives are attempting to solidify their position within an organization is by strengthening their skill sets. While traditional coursework and seminars still have a foothold on the executive education arena, more and more executives are turning to mobile learning as a means to strengthen skills at a pace that fits the intensity of their schedules.
If you’re in this group (and really, who isn’t in today’s climate?), I would strongly recommend you check out CKC’s Executive Edge ™ . This skill-building publication is delivered directly to you twice each month, and each issue is devoted to the mastery of one of numerous skills that every executive needs to succeed.
From the feedback that I’ve received, one of the aspects of Executive Edge that people most enjoy is the focus on practical applications of skills. This often arrives in the form of takeaways from executives with hands-on experience. Unlike other publications that focus on theory and speculation, Executive Edge delivers front-line information forged from the success stories of companies across the globe.
