By: Knobull
PROVIDENCE, R.I. - May 25, 2022 - PRLog -- Lynn Bentley, President of Knobull announced, "Skills will always be critical, and perhaps even more important is a learning mindset which keeps your capabilities fresh and makes your potential evident. A recent study found the characteristic of curiosity and an orientation for learning were the hottest new skills, with 72% of leaders reporting they believe it's a valuable trait and 51% who believe it has become more important over time; also believe it drives business impact (59%) and performance (51%).

A learning orientation—and curiosity—are the desires to seek new information, inquire, explore and discover novel possibilities and experiences. According to the same study, LinkedIn posts mentioning curiosity are up 71% and job postings mentioning the need for curiosity are up 90% in the last couple years.

With a learning orientation, you can build your skills to make yourself more attractive to employers, but your curiosity can also be differentiating by itself. Learning new things is a boost to self-confidence.

It's important to collaborate and communicate well. Your learning orientation makes a difference here. Employers value and appreciate those who are seeking to advance their careers.

Position yourself as a strong candidate for any role which includes budgeting, forecasting, or making day-to-day choices which have financial impact. Also, with the pace of change and the constant shifts in markets, employers are looking for people who are adaptable.

Key career building initiatives include:

Go deep and go broad. Many people have broad curiosity—where you're interested at a superficial level in lots of topics.

Build your network. One of the best ways to learn is from other people, so collaborate with people who are in your field, but also those who have different competencies and talents.

Make it a habit. Wonder about things, ask questions, and seek answers in the moment. Regularly explore the ordinary details of life around you, in order to foster a sense of curiosity and learning.

Take a class. Take advantage of the numerous learning opportunities available online or though your employer. Structured learning, either with synchronous or asynchronous interaction with others, can be a terrific boost for your knowledge in key areas which can benefit your career.

Bentley concluded, "It's a new day and more than a degree, a learning orientation will be the path to success—because it keeps your skills fresh and makes you adaptable—and because it can differentiate you among all the rest who are competing for jobs today. Focus on questioning, exploring, and building your knowledge, and these will surely translate into great success in your career!"
