As digitalization continues to disrupt every industry, L&D functions are also under pressure to upskill their workforce at a very rapid pace. Professional opportunities today are very different from what they were a decade ago and the skills required to excel in these new roles are still being identified.
Recent research highlights that 58% of professionals feel stuck at various stages of their careers. For women, this number is even higher at 83%. For those who overcame this professional hurdle, a key differentiator has been 1:1 coaching from seasoned practitioners, SpeakIn claims.
So, SpeakIn launched GROW — a first-of-its-kind digital platform that pairs professionals with expert coaches from around Asia, based on their specific goals and requirements. Through 1:1 video sessions, SpeakIn GROW claimed they could enable professionals to rapidly develop the skills they need to stay ahead of the curve and progress in their careers.
Available on desktop and mobile, SpeakIn GROW caters to both businesses and individuals. It features an assessment-driven personality report to ensure each learning session is customized according to the user's needs. The platform also offers e-Learning videos, podcasts, blogs and live interactions customised to suit the individual's requirements.
"SpeakIn GROW brings 1-on-1 coaching to professionals across Asia so that they can learn from experts and navigate the problems and issues that are impeding their lives and careers. GROW enables working professionals to access life lessons from proven achievers to unlock their full potential and turbo-charge their careers," said Deepshikha Kumar, founder and chief executive officer of SpeakIn.
"If I want to be a CEO, I can learn directly at SpeakIn GROW from a five-time CEO, what it takes to reach that position and stay there. If I want to be an entrepreneur, SpeakIn GROW gives me 1-on-1 access to a serial entrepreneur who has sold a USD100 million company — not once but twice over. We at SpeakIn GROW are ready to fuel Asian aspirations and turbocharge careers," she added.
The platform currently hosts over 18,000 experts from various industries and functions, including business leaders, entrepreneurs, academicians and more. Experts include author and business leader Paul Dupuis; former chief executive officer of KPMG India Richard Rekhy; founder of Akasa Airlines Aditya Ghosh; and Apple iTunes education initiative founder Alan Greenberg.
SpeakIn GROW is currently available in India and Singapore, and has plans to expand to other Asian markets in the near future.
