The World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs Report suggests that the top ten skills for 2025 are going to be:
- Analytical thinking and Innovation
- Active Learning and learning strategies
- Complex problem-solving
- Critical thinking and analysis
- Creativity, originality and initiative
- Leadership and social influence
- Technology use, monitoring and control
- Technology design and programming
- Resilience, stress tolerance and flexibility
- Reasoning, problem-solving and ideation
This is a pretty abstract list. There is very little detail on the various behaviours, cognitive processes, traits, attitudes, experiences etc that would contribute to any of these “big picture” skills.
This leaves those with hiring and talent development responsibilities in a bind. How do you identify the sub-skills of such abstract categories? How do you develop them?
EQ Lab’s Future of Jobs series will help anybody involved in the hiring and development of talent to know exactly what they should be looking for. In this first session, we will be exploring and breaking down Analytical Thinking and Innovation.
As always, this is an interactive and live discussion between all registrants rather than a traditional presentation. Audio-video in the breakout sessions is therefore required.
