The Future of Work Requires Non-Technical Expertise

 

As advanced technologies automate our world in more ubiquitous ways, we naturally assume that technical skills will be in the highest demand in the future job market. But as revealed in a recent report from the World Economic Forum (WEF), among many other studies, the rise of ever-smarter machines demands a surge in the social and emotional abilities machines cannot master. Soft skills such as adaptability, creative thinking, persuasion, relationship mastery, the ability to deal with complexity, and time management are increasingly valuable to companies as they become more dynamic, interconnected, and flexible by necessity. However, HR professionals report difficulty recruiting candidates who have these very skills!
