The Future of Work

Tuesday 7th March 2017 |  Time:   1:30 pm to 2:00 pm AEDT

Webcast Overview

In the 20th century, it was easy to build a competent team because leaders could set goals, define roles, and assemble and craft a team of people with those skills. That doesn’t work anymore.

The skills your team needs for the future aren’t the same as the skills you have now, and they definitely aren’t technical, task-oriented skills – because those skills will become obsolete through automation and artificial intelligence.

– Identify the 10 key skills for the future workforce
– Develop three of these key skills in your team
– Do three simple things to make these ideas stick
– Future-proof your team so you can stay ahead of the game
