May 21st century soft skills ka na?

By: - 08/12/2019

To stay in competition and to remain relevant, trending ngayon sa mga service industry sector companies ang paghahanap at pagdevelop ng mga employees na may mga modern or 21st
century soft skills.

Itinuturo na rin ito ngayon sa mga estudyante sa lahat ng level lalo na sa mga senior high school at college students.

Because the work landscape has been constantly changing and growing, and influencing the way we do and produce things, experts agree that everybody must possess these 21st century skills such as learning skills, literacy skills and life skills in order to adapt and succeed in modern workplace.

Learning skills are creativity, critical thinking, collaboration and communication. Literacy skills are information literacy, media literacy and technology literacy. And the life skills are flexibility, leadership, initiative, productivity and social skills.

Critical thinking is looking for solutions to problems. Creativity is thinking outside the box. Collaboration is working with others to achieve something. Communication is talking or speaking with and listening to others.

Information literacy is understanding figures, statistics and data. Media literacy is understanding the methods, applications and sources of information. Technology literacy is understanding the machines and computers such as desktop, laptop, tablet and smartphones.

Flexibility is diverting from plans as the need arises. Leadership is motivating everyone to achieve targets. Initiative is taking action on your own. Productivity is keeping effective amid distractions. Social skills interacting and networking with others for mutual benefit.

Regardless of your age, we all need to develop these 21st century soft skills.
