Skills allow us to execute. Meta-skills like empathy, resilience, creativity, and self-awareness allow us to evolve. As organizations and industries face increasingly rapid change and disruption, in which job descriptions are fluid and agility is essential, meta-skills are fast becoming the currency of talent.
Performance Coaching CEO Dane Jensen will lay out the meta-skills that will anchor the organization of the future, and discuss how to think about building meta-skills. Dane will be joined by Sheldon McCormick from UBER, the epitome of a meta-skilled organization. Sheldon will share UBER’s practices for arming employees to thrive in an organization predicated on rapid change.
