My personal takeway from this. Technology is a double-edge swords. It obsoletes old jobs but creates new one. The so-called “jobs” have no meaning to machines and robots. They don’t have emotional attachment towards their jobs and the reason is simple- there is no way they could spend the money they earned from their “job”. They are just simply doing it for us, the human.
Anyway, there are always some skills that machines could not replace the human. Skills that requires human touch. I kind of like the way Cognizant categorize “human-touch” skills namely – Coaching, Caring, and Connecting.
Coaches can reshape work by making it more engaging, humane and purposeful. Those who have a flair for mentoring and helping people to improve at things (managing their finances, managing their weight) should hone those skills.
Forward-thinking organizations will focus on making the best of people, and not just the best of technology. Workers with social intelligence and the ability to make sense of complex processes will be in high demand to improve people’s health and wellness.
Workers with a collaborative mindset will be key to helping connect the dots in a technology-led workplace. New roles identified in the report require workers to be good at building bridges between man and machine, traditional and shadow IT, the physical and the virtual world, and commerce and ethics.
