1:20 PM The Hard Side of Soft Skills

We're in an era that many are calling the “fourth industrial revolution.” A technology-dominated future is on the horizon, transforming the way we live and work. Jobs that do not exist today will soon be commonplace. 

The Institute for the Future has identified five future ‘Super Skills’, create a personal brand, become digitally fluent, build a tribe, make sense of complexity, and become more resilient.  Arguably these are all, what are considered 'soft skills'; however, how can any company prepare for these future super skills? The paradigm for training soft skills is different from that of hard skills, hence the challenge. In this session, we will explore how to train for the future with soft skills. Topics covered will include: Why soft skills are the key to future-proofing your workforce, the problem of training for soft skills (and strategy to solve for it) and the science of learning
