Today I would like to share another great piece from Tom Fox. It’s entitled “Skills for the compliance professional in the 2020s.“
In this must-read piece, Tom shares five skills that we should all focus on at the start of this new decade. All five skills are highly relevant but I would like to highlight one here: developing emotional intelligence.
We are now living in a world where machines and algorithms are increasingly taking over the tasks and decisions that humans were responsible for. If something relies on efficiency, it will soon be done by a non-human. Humans will be sought after only for highly non-efficient tasks that require the powers of adaptation, creativity and… emotional intelligence.
Examine the tasks that you do today. Make a list. Identify those that rely on efficiency and those that rely on emotional intelligence. You soon won’t be needed for the tasks in the first bucket.
What’s left on your plate?
