Why?

Successful youth employability depends on education, technical experience and job readiness. Technical proficiency does not automatically equate to job readiness. There is a growing sense of urgency to adopt Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) technologies, that include artificial intelligence, robotics and data analytics in business and education. According to the World Economic Forum, indispensable 4IR employees are those with transdisciplinary skillsets.i The latter include problem solving, self-management, working with people and 4IR technology. Effective communication, critical thinking & interpersonal skills are therefore imperative for career and personal advancement and should be in the toolbox of all who wish to prosper in the 21st century.  Soft skills have evolved into power skills.

What?

Our transformational workshops focus on inclusive 4IR workspace requirements such as self-management, relationship management, teamworking and leadership capabilities, critical thinking, negotiation, problem solving, conflict resolution and cognitive flexibility.
