Put group leadership and collaborative skills to work

Automation and AI technologies are designed to enhance our private and professional lives. This means that as machines take over the monotonous tasks, skills such as team-building, oral and written communication, and leadership skills will be highly valued.

Wired editor in chief Nicholas Thompson told the audience at an event at the company’s San Francisco headquarters in October 2018, that “jobs involving social interaction and social skills will be most protected in our automated future.” And he wasn’t alone.

Jeff Weiner, CEO of LinkedIn added: “As powerful as AI will ultimately become and is becoming, we’re still a ways away from computers being able to replicate and replace human interaction and human touch. So there’s a wonderful incentive for people to develop these skills because those jobs going to be more stable for a longer period of time.”

Leadership skills needed today demand that we have the competence and confidence to bring people with a variety of skills and cultures together, collaborate and consider multiple viewpoints to come up with the best solutions to complex problems. This course from Hyper Island will help you gain the competence and confidence to apply collaboration to create the best solutions for positive business results.
