Well, we are only less than half a year away from 2020 and there is no better time than enhancing some skills that will not only look on the resume better but make you saleable and indispensable at work.
Alvin Toffler once said, “The illiterate is not one who cannot read and write; but he who cannot learn, unlearn and re-learn.”

There is something for everyone here is only an understatement. We recommend that everyone posts their requirements and resumes on it to be able to get the best leads.

Forbes magazine recently came out with a list of ten qualities that every professional must consider having in them by the year 2020. They are:
1. The skill to be able to solve complex problems;
2. To be able to think on the feet and creatively;
3. Critical thinking;
4. Knowing how to manage people;
5. The skill of being able to coordinate successfully with other people;
6. EQ or Emotional Intelligence;
7. Decision-making skills;
8. To be able to provide service;
9. Fine negotiation skills and
10. Cognitive flexibility
The above article hit the bull’s eye and got critical acclaim for chalking out all the qualities that are needed for the executive of the 21st century. However, the article itself further enumerates that these skills are only not enough.
So, what can be the other additions that will make a person prepared for twenty-twenty?
Creativity has no competition:
What a person creates as art can have no direct competition. It is something that he can only create, and this is precisely why this quality is much sought after. It is not something that can be cultivated. A lot of professional leaders in their fields have an inherent trait of creativity.
Avil Beckford, the founder of The Invisible Mentor, once gave a profound analogy about learning. She said that when cell phones were introduced, they were only meant for communication per se. But with time, they have become a palm-sized computer for every one of us. We have been hurrying to learn all the smart things that the cellular phone can do.
The pertinent question is the above-enumerated skills enough for succeeding in the coming years?
Well. It makes commons sense to say that since the job market and the macro levels are rapidly changing. They are evolving at a swift pace that there may be many more other skills that are desirable for making a mark.
Here are some additional qualities that a person may need to stock up on to be able to shine in the coming year:
Not just read but also intelligently read. It is essential to learn about cultures and subcultures in the world. To be able to create a cultural understanding within oneself and to sensitize oneself and appreciate the many differences that we as people have.
To be able to speed read will keep everyone that wants to reach higher echelons in good stead. Never stop reading and continuously increasing the number of hours spent reading is taking one step at the time on the ladder of immediate success.
Write down things that affect you, alter your thinking, and inspire you. It could be a quote or a passage or a story that motivates you. Taking notes is one way not to forget your goals in life.
This skill is indispensable in today’s work environment. A professional who can analyze data and acts on it is coming out in flying colors; there are no two ways about it.
The ability to effectively communicate is a boon for an aspiring professional. Saying what is essential without any waffling is the need of the hour.
Leverage technology to benefit from it:
It is needless to say that we are surrounded by technology more than ever. We cannot even think of life without the various social media channels that have sabotaged our lives. The trick to success is to leverage such channels to be able to make them work for you.
