Skills for the Future of Work

Nov. 15, 2021

But more than half of all the people I know in their 30’s, their 40’s, their 50’s, half of all the parents are not doing what they formally studied to do.” 

This week Jude Foulston and Graeme Codrington discuss the future of skills at work. Challenging parents and teachers to a paradigm shift in their young learner’s educational journey apart from the traditional, narrow path to a university academic career and toward practical, usable and a range of skills relevant to every organization five years into the future. 

The insightful discussion touches on artificial intelligence and algorithms potentially replacing most human menial tasks at a lower accumulated cost and quicker speed emphasizing the need for learners to develop future work skills in a combination of the following areas:

  • Complex adaptive thinking 
  • Entrepreneurial skills 
  • Emotional intelligence 
  • Problem solving 
  • Curiosity 
  • Communication 
  • Tech savvy 
  • Diversity intelligence 

And many more internal human centered skills not easily replicated by a large computer.
