What are Deep Human Skills?
The essentials for success in the modern world
Focus & Mindfulness
We are operating in an environment of mass distraction and technology
Your ability to control your attention, focus on what matters, and form insightful connections to separate the signal from the noise will be crucial to your success in life.
Self-awareness, or the ability to see yourself clearly, is essential for high performance and making good decisions.
However, research suggests that while 95% of people believe they are self-aware, only 12-15% of them actually are. As Dr. Tasha Eurich puts it, that means on a good day, about 80% of people are lying about themselves to themselves"!
Empathy is the ability to shift perspectives, and understand others on a deeply human level.
Coupled with self-awareness and the ability to assert appropriate boundaries, empathy is a superskill that will allow you to connect and engage effectively.
Work today is marked by ambiguity, constant strategy changes and necessitates working virtually with cross-cultural teams.
All of this requires sophisticated communication skills, such as giving skillful feedback, interpersonal awareness and the ability to manage difficult conversations with calm and clarity.
Adaptive Resilience is a fundamental hygiene factor that determines your ability to thrive.
It doesn’t matter if you have the best skills in the world if you give up easily or not possess the psychological flexibility to adapt, learn and keep growing through challenging times.
