Why now. Why StudeoCo.
Because of frustrations felt in our own careers and a belief that there is a better way for us all to connect, learn and grow together. Now is the time to create change and build a community that better serves the learning and career needs of people - not institutions. If there is one thing that is constant, it’s change. We can’t rely on the standard practices and organizations of old to serve us going forward if we don’t know where we are trying to go. There are better means to continued education and leveling up in our lives and careers. And we don’t need to rely on ladders and degrees to get us there.
StudeoCo was established to be an alternative for your personal career development. A place for connecting people. A trusted source for curated content and learning. A space for continued discovery and growth.
The journey here at StudeoCo has only just begun.
Communities more connected. Careers more agile. People more fulfilled.
To amplify a culture of learning that allows people to live their best lives.
We strive to be better. Better in our relationships. Better at our work. Better versions of ourselves. To strive means we are working for something. We are pushing to grow. Too often we find ourselves stuck in life because we are no longer growing, no longer striving. Progress and purpose lead to fulfillment and learning is life’s fuel.
We believe that learning is a lifestyle. It is our path for finding fulfillment and furthering our careers. Learning allows us to actively adapt in a world with increasing change. We believe that, through community learning, we can embrace deeper and more meaningful personal connections. At a time when the world has become more connected than ever, we’ve become more disconnected from those closest to us. We all need help in navigating the gray areas of life and work.
We build confidence by taking action. We are open to change and believe we can grow. We put our life and our work first. With the learning, community and support we’re creating, we aim to provide the space and continued opportunity to do just that. To get clear, to learn, to grow.
We are your chance to keep figuring it all out.
You are not alone.
We all seek fulfillment in our work.
Work Challenge 1: Callings, careers and jobs
We all have different orientations towards our work. There is no one right way. Some prefer it as a means to an end in support of their lives whiles others thrive when life and work blend to support their strengths and personal missions. The key is to understand what motivates you and how that motivation affects your path forward. Knowing your orientation can also help you find better ways to motivate yourself and craft better work situations without having to make drastic changes.
Work Challenge 2: Working on Purpose
It means the difference between going to work day after day treading water and thriving in a life filled with meaning and hope. Purpose provides us with aims and goals. When a person has a reason for being, everything works better. All the pieces fit together. Too often we start along a path and choose a job or career before we’ve really come to know ourselves. We must do the hard work to better understand who we are and who we wish to become. Then we can create meaning in our work or find work that creates more meaning for us.
Learning in crisis.
Without a focus on people, learning systems cannot raise us up.
learning Challenge 1: Cost, Credentials and changing careers
It should be no shock to anyone that the youngest generations of workers are the most debt-ridden from education while at the same time have seen the value of their acquired degrees fade. The shelf-life of knowledge and skills increasingly devalues this “point-in-time” education as we move ahead in our careers. With all the world’s information at our fingertips and human expertise working alongside us (not in our lecture halls), the time is now to create new communities of affordable, ongoing and collaborative learning.
learning challenge 2: The digital divide
While the market for online learning continues to experience massive growth, the completion rates for students and professionals registering for these e-learning platforms lags drastically behind. Completion rates vary but several studies suggest that the average never exceeds more than 5-15% for any given course. In this age of information overload, simply throwing more content online leaves out what makes great education and learning successful. Social accountability and peer-to-peer learning is a vital missing link.
