The skill superpower in the AI era? It's not technical.

“You can have all the technical expertise you want, but it’s useless if you cannot communicate it in a way that we can digest it and understand it, if you cannot put it in a framework for us.”

Ty Beasley, Chief Talent Officer, RSM

Many workers are missing critical durable skills

Technical understanding is rarely enough 

How to close the durable skills gap

1. Foster a learner's mindset in the workplace

Employers look for candidates who embody the "5 C's": 1. Caring, 2. Collaborative, 3. Curious, 4. Courageous, 5. Critical thinkers.

2. Leaders must display their own durable skills growth

Reminder: Technical skills equip employees for the jobs of today. Durable skills equip employees for the jobs of tomorrow.
