Session Name: Hero's Journey for Re-Skilling Talent (and other Digital Adventures)
What do Star Wars, The Matrix, and The Lord of the Rings have to do with re-skilling your workforce? Taking a look at the archetypes and patterns from the hero’s journey, we’ll share some anecdotes on how this applies to our current digital transformation efforts in the federal workforce. We’ll also discuss that when we answer the call to adventure, we often find the answers were not out in the unknown, but within each of us before we started the journey.
