The future of work is highly connected, fast-changing, and unpredictable. This requires specific THINKING capacity to deal with VUCA.
UNFORTUNATELY, thinking capacity includes invisible attributes that exert more control over our abilities and effectiveness than we realize.
and these invisible attributes prevent us from seeing ways out of our VUCA dilemmas.
The good news: we talk about these invisible attributes all the time in business.
The bad news: we don’t take action on it.
Why don’t we take action? The learning marketplace focuses on treating the symptoms (behaviors) and ignores the root cause (invisible attributes).
To THRIVE in complexity- individuals need TWO things:
99.9% of learning marketplace offerings focus exclusively on skill development. This doesn’t fix the problem. It treats a symptom. And sometimes it doesn’t even do that!
Consider this - Of the top 10 skills reported as critical for job success (Future of Jobs Report), 70% require thinking development to be minimally effective.
