PKM is a set of processes, individually constructed, to help each of us make sense of our world and work more effectively. PKM means taking control of your professional development, and staying connected in the network era, whether you an employee, self-employed, or between jobs. The active practice of PKM can help increase Connections, develop Meaning, and improve Autonomy, all necessary skills in the network era. This can be the beginning of your journey to personal knowledge mastery.

“I signed up, read a few pages, already had 2-3 deep learnings! BOOM!” – Jonathan Anthony

“As a master mapping out a pathway for followers, I think you’ve neatly avoided the common trap of being overly prescriptive and kept it to a minimum of discrete steps.” – Chris Mansell

“Therefore, if I were to comment on this program, Harold, I’d have to say it’s brilliant: it offers something for all of us. But it’s up to each of us to take what you offer; make SENSE of it and filter it to identify information that is immediately useful vs useful later vs less useful, then SHARE key insights formed as a result of having gone through this process.” – Chemene Sinson

“I encourage you to sign up for the workshop in Personal Knowledge Mastery.” – Kenneth Mikkelsen
