Here at Growmotely, we’re pumped about learning. We can’t help it; it’s how we’re wired. Stay curious, stay open is one of our five company values, and let’s state what’s true --> curiosity and learning go hand-in-hand.
With the recent opening of our community (yay!), we have decided to give a renewed focus to learning. More specifically, our Events Manager – Andreea Gătin – has put together a new line-up of masterclasses ‘this season’ that has a laser focus on upskilling in the realm of remote work. 🥳
Bottom line is this: you are all in for a treat! (Look. I can speak with authority, as – including the exceptional masterclass that I attended earlier this week – I have attended ten masterclasses powered by Growmotely, and I have even delivered one myself…!)
And speaking of our masterclass experts, Lisa Stephenson – who delivered our ‘Resilience in Remote Work’ masterclass last month – is known for saying (and I wholeheartedly agree): “You don’t know what you don’t know.” This truth is powerful in all spheres, and it is no less so when we’re talking about the realm of remote work.
Perhaps you’ve heard of the ‘Conscious Competence Learning Model’? If not – let’s dive in quickly here:
⁜ ⁜ ⁜ ⁜ ⁜
Stage 1: Unconscious incompetence
--> We are terrible at something, but we don’t even know it, because we don’t even know the thing or skill in question exists. (Otherwise known as ‘ignorant bliss’.) 🙃
Stage 2: Conscious incompetence
--> Something happens (e.g. we attend a Growmotely masterclass) and we are now aware that this thing is a thing, and that we are terrible at it. Wild! 🙃
Stage 3 --> Conscious competence
--> We want to be good at the thing, so we work hard to become competent at this skill. All the while – we are painfully aware of every step we take! This newfound competence is not yet completely integrated into our person.
Stage 4 --> Unconscious competence
--> We are so good – and we’ve been doing the thing well for so long – that it’s like breathing. We’re barely aware of how awesome we are at the thing. So cool!

Here at Growmotely, we’re all about consciousness, and in the sphere of learning, that shows up in our interest to move from stage 1 to stage 2 whenever we can. And once we arrive at stage 2, we’re all about moving from stage 2 to stage 3, and then to stage 4 when it comes to the skills that we deem useful, and those that light us on fire.
We’ve got your back when it comes to upskilling in the realm of remote work. Here are a handful of remote work topics that we will be delving into ‘this season’ via our masterclass programming. (Which stage do you think you might be at with each of these areas of expertise?) ⬇️
Here at Growmotely, we think it’s wildly important to give our time and energy to upskilling in the realm of remote work because we know that the skills required to thrive in this area – like many skills – are learned (rather than innate), and that we are not going to learn about them and / or hone them by sitting on our laurels.
We see the Future of Work as a place where the pursuit of learning is embraced – with joy to boot – and we all encourage each other to step out on a limb when it comes to opportunities to upskill (like attending Growmotely masterclasses!)…so that we are consistently moving from stage 1 to stage 2…and beyond.
We’ve created this Future of Work in our new open community (that you can check out here), and if you choose to join us, attendance to any one of our scintillating masterclasses are included in the monthly subscription payment, which we are offering to you at five price points. ➡️ $3.00 | $5.00 | $8.00 | $13.00 | $21.00 USD (…please choose the amount that feels aligned for you!)
We’re having a blast in this new space, and we would love for you to join us, not least, to have partners-in-crime with whom we can all move through the four stages of learning! 💫
