The world is changing and new skills are needed for the future of work and for organisations to grow and develop.
With companies, organisations and freelancers all facing disruption from COVID-19 and other global challenges, creativity is needed more than ever.
Traditional skills, such as management are therefore being replaced with the need for innovation skills in order to find and develop creative solutions to the complex world we live in. These include competencies such as:
- Analytical thinking and innovation
- Creativity, originality and initiative
- Leadership and social influence
- Emotional intelligence
- Ideation and risk-taking
Skills in self-management (such as active learning, resilience, stress tolerance and flexibility) have recently emerged as being very important.
