The only constant in life and in business is “Change”. To thrive and succeed, you need to adapt in order to excel both at work and personally. As Forbes says, “Change has never been this fast. It will never be this slow again.”
Not just from a technological and business perspective, but we are, as individuals, constantly facing numerous challenges related to technological advances. Our culture is changing much faster. It means that we, as an individual, have a bigger role in this transition. Experts call this era the 4th Industrial Revolution, or simply the “digital revolution.”
LinkedIn Learning surveyed their network of over 660+ million professionals and 20+ million jobs and identified Adaptability as one of the 5 most in-demand soft (interpersonal) skills of 2020. The World Economic Forum also reported that technology adoption is expected to accelerate in most areas and an average of 70% of employees will require upskilling or re-skilling.
