SANTA MONICA, Calif. – Sept. 13, 2022 – Cornerstone OnDemand, Inc. , a leader in adaptive HR solutions, in partnership with WaitWhat’s award-winning media property “Masters of Scale,” today announced “Skills for Scale,” a new series available exclusively to Cornerstone Content Anytime (CCA) customers. "Skills for Scale” will launch with 10 courses, with many more courses to follow in the coming year, strategically designed and curated to develop the most critical business and leadership skills of the future – known as Power Skills – that organizations need to be competitive in their industry, grow their people and advance their business at scale.
Hosted by Reid Hoffman, co-founder of LinkedIn, partner at Greylock, and Host of Masters of Scale, “Skills for Scale” courses introduce a combination of original animation and audio from WaitWhat’s iconic “Masters of Scale” podcast to distill insights and analysis from iconic CEOs and founders into inspiring, actionable learning that embraces the "intrapreneurial" mindset. The courses series covers a range of topics, such as how to hone a vision for success, sell ideas to colleagues and embrace the entrepreneurial mindset of these thought leaders. Learners hear first-person stories from a lineup of legendary leaders, including Mark Cuban, Tory Burch, Barry Diller and members of the courageous Apollo 13 crew, as well as the founders and CEOs of Airbnb, Starbucks, Disney, Wikipedia, Slack, and many more.
“If one thing has become clear across nearly every industry and region, it is the imminent need for modern content and continuous skill-building opportunities within organizations,” said Summer Salomonsen, Vice President of Content Product at Cornerstone. “We place a strong emphasis on developing the type of content that might not yet exist within organizations, but is so desperately needed for today’s workforce. Our new ‘Skills for Scale’ series is timely, visual, and designed for busy learners to help them develop innovative business and leadership skills needed to better adapt, grow and feel prepared for the future. I'm so proud of what we've created with the WaitWhat team, and what we’ll be able to provide our customers through our dynamic and continuously growing content library.”
With the launch of “Skills for Scale,” Cornerstone and WaitWhat have expanded their original partnership, established in 2021, which brought curated courses from WaitWhat’s award-winning “Masters of Scale” podcast to organizations worldwide through CCA. Now taking their collaboration to new levels, “Skills for Scale” courses represent even more accessible and digestible content for customers, all exclusively available in CCA’s Professional Skills and Leadership & Management curated subscriptions.
