When you enter the workforce, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, you usually receive some sort of formal training. But Chip Conley, Airbnb alum and founder of the Modern Elder Academy, contends that no one really prepares you for the latter half of your career. This is where the concept of a ‘modern elder’ comes into play. What is a modern elder, you may ask? This is a person who is as curious as they are wise.

In his new 7-part class with Big Think+, Chip Conley shares his belief that in order to continually progress throughout your career, you must embrace your role as a wisdom worker at your organization. He’ll share guidance on how to engage in long-life learning, spark catalytic curiosity, establish mentorships, and more. 

We’re excited to see how Chip and other world-class Big Think+ business minds can help your team engage in long-life learning. Check out a sample from Chip’s class and request a full demo below for more detail on Big Think+ Leadership.
