Invest in the skills that will always matter.
In their ground-breaking book “Forever Skills: The 12 Skills to Futureproof Yourself, Your Team and Your Kids”, Kieran Flanagan and Dan Gregory have interviewed hundreds of successful business people, educators, futurists, economists and historians to uncover the key skills that will always be critical to success.
Where most futurists increase your sense of panic and anxiety with dystopian images of the not-too-distant future characterised by Artificial Intelligence (AI) taking our jobs, algorithms hacking our most private moments and Austrian-accented cyborgs raising our children, Kieran and Dan remind us that we need to look beyond the things changing around us and also focus on the things that won’t change within us.
These 12 FOREVER SKILLS are designed to set you up to handle whatever the future may throw at you plus help you get more success in your work and life, today.
• Which skills will matter most for work, business and life in the future?

• How can you future proof your training, yourself, your organisation and your kids?
