Future-Proofing Your Skills
Happy February! We hope you’ve had a rejuvenating and restful start to the year and are ready to take on 2019.
A little bit about what we have been up to. We spent Christmas with our family on the South Coast and have launched into 2019 in full force, with a ton of work on our calendars. Grahame and Danette have spent most of January on the Isle of Man, delivering their Manx Leaders program for two businesses as well as a public program. It’s their second time on the Isle as they were asked to come back by popular demand – and they’ll be heading back to the Isle for Phase 3 in early May.
This month’s theme is Future-Proofing Your Skills and Developing an Adaptability Quotient.
You may be thinking: “Why do I need to future-proof my skills?”
The reality is we’re already a month into 2019 and a lot is changing within the workforce – from the age demographic to the skills required to be hired within different industries.
We’re committed to helping you understand the future of work better and prepare you for the shift in industry skills. For more on this, keep reading! And we hope you have a great month ahead.
Grahame, Danette and the Magical Learning Team.

Book Of The Month
The 5AM Club by Robin Sharma
As longtime followers of Robin’s work, we were excited to read this book. Four years in the making, it explores how to implement the strategies to create the life that you want.
The 5AM Club is about setting your day up to win, starting your day early to fill your cup so you can go out into the world and serve others. Robin shares particular protocols that, when followed, will elevate your life and help you move towards creating the life you want.
This book is told in a similar style to The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, which makes it easy to read. Robin shares some great models to help you embed each practice.
We loved this book and highly recommend it if you are looking to achieve more in your life.
