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!

  How do you get ahead in your job?
Practice, Practice, Practice!

Participate in self-reflection.
In order to improve, you must first be honest about where your shortcomings are. This isn't always easy. If you are struggling, ask a friend or family member to help you identify your true strengths and weaknesses.
Observe others.
Look to others who exemplify the soft skills you want to improve. If you have a relationship with them, ask for their advice or coaching.

All soft skills will improve with practice. Once you have obtained training or coaching, practice using your new-found skills with friends or family before your interview. This will give you the confidence to take these skills into the workplace.
