More important than academic background: Decisive difference between people with high self-study ability and those with low self-study ability
“Reskilling” is currently attracting attention when it comes to learning inside and outside of companies. “Reskilling” is often translated as “relearning,” but it is “learning the skills and techniques that will be needed in the future in a changing society.”
What is important here is whether or not you have a “learning attitude”, that is, whether you have the “self-study ability”. Self-studying is not passive, but an indispensable condition is “involvement in learning” based on the three elements of “Why to learn,” “What to learn,” and “How to learn.” ──.
Shunsuke Takahashi, who has written many career-related books such as “Career Shock” and “New Edition Human Resource Management Theory,” and who has been researching human resources and human resource management from a management perspective for over 30 years, recently published “Self-Study Skills”. He has published “Self-study Skills to Build a Career: 50 Tips for Surviving as a Professional,” which is a complete explanation of “How to Learn as a Working Adult” in one book. He asserts, “Improving your self-study skills will enrich not only your professional career, but your entire life.”
He is the representative of the Japanese subsidiary of one of the world’s leading human resources consulting companies, and is currently engaged in research on career development and organizational human resource development, and is a “leading expert on career theory” who popularized the concept of “career shock” in Japan. Mr. Takahashi explains “7 decisive differences between people with high and low self-study skills that are more important than academic background.”
