The Future of jobs Report, 2020, from World Economic Forum prescribes Critical Thinking, Systems Thinking, Emotional Intelligence and Persuasive communication as key competencies for the future. These are inter-related skills which enable the professional to manage and lead in a VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous) world. Our normal thinking is governed by mental models that we develop over a period of time based on our own experiences and our learning from others such as parents, teachers, politicians, celebrities and religious gurus.
Remember there is a fair sprinkling of charlatans in the midst of people from whom we accept inputs. Deviations of mental models from reality due to erroneous inputs lead to incorrect analysis of situations and ineffective decisions. Critical Thinking teaches us to approach situations in our personal and work lives with a questioning attitude which helps us to unravel logical fallacies, biases and prejudices in our mental models.
Systems thinking allows us to understand complex problems which surround us to avoid unanticipated consequences and to design high leverage interventions. Emotional Intelligence (self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy and social skills) provides us with the escape velocity to overcome the gravitational pulls of emotions and false beliefs. Empathy and Social skills help us in developing the much-needed skills for working and dealing with people. Emotional intelligence has been widely recognized as the differentiating factor between ordinary and the extra ordinary achievers in all walks of life.
On the other hand, Persuasive Communication plays a significant role in applying Thinking Skills and Emotional Intelligence in every-day life. It acts as a bridge to all other stake holders with whom we need to interact while applying these skills. The three groups of skills complement each other to offer us unified benefits.
