The Simple Joy of Learning on the Job

Remember how good it felt to teach yourself a new skill from a YouTube video, render your first line of Python code, or master a complicated formula in Excel? Unfortunately, much of the joy has been snuffed out of learning, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Start by taking back control of what you read and recognizing that you are learning everyday; from films, conversations, advertising, speeches and many other sources.

Continuous learning can help you in your career, indeed adaptable learners are in high demand. While the joy is a worthwhile end in its own right, joyful learning can also be used to ignite individual careers and collective productivity. We hope some of our offerings below spark you to experience the joy of learning and provide skills you can apply immediately to improve your professional life.
