FUTURE SKILLS

The Future is here.

The way we work is changing. In order to be future-ready and stay ahead of the change, we need to focus on nurturing our future skills.

Automation, AI and robots are a reality that is no longer confined to sci-fi movies. Most economists, researchers and futurists don’t believe us humans will all of a sudden become redundant. According to an article recently published on the World Economic Forum‘s website, in 10 years time, 50% of jobs will be changed by automation – but only 5% eliminated. However, it does mean that skills which can be automated (such as accounting, administration, processing etc.) are likely to be less in demand in the future.

Fortunately, there are a lot of skills that are relatively easy to master for humans, but very difficult to automate, and there are also skills which most customers prefer to be done by humans (can you imagine swapping your trusted hairdresser for a robot?).

Many of these skills have been grouped under this new term called “Future Skills“. As it turns out, many successful innovators and entrepreneurs, such as Elon Musk, and Steve Jobs, tend to be really good at these Future Skills.
