In a recent study, McKinsey looked at the key skills in greater detail:

  • less manual but more digital and social skills
  • ability to continually adapt to new ways of working and occupations
  • add value beyond automated and intelligent systems

However, at least equally important to skills is our mindset:

  • Are we embracing digital changes?
  • Can we effectively lead ourself and others?
  • Do we ask the right questions and can we actively listen to answers?

The result over 18000 people in terms of a score from 0 to 100 is 57: Higher education typically results in higher skills but not necessarily in a better mindset.

So the simple recipe for a satisfying and highly paid job is to stay curious, flexible and result oriented – stay healthy and confident … 😄
