Dr. Daniele Nappo, Legal Representative and founder of S. Freud Private School , in the editorial focuses on the new skills and knowledge required by the world of work that is constantly changing.
According to the World Economic Forum, more than a billion people will have to adapt their individual skills and experience by retraining their skills. Digital skills and humanistic skills are the must-haves of the next decade. In this new background, 75 million workers will be replaced by automation and the changes imposed by digital but, at the same time, as many as 133 million new jobs will be created. In Italy, 70% - two out of three workers - say they are predisposed to diversify their skills in order to find a new job; This is above the global average of 67%. Therefore, being flexible is the key to access the new economic and social conditions. And that's not all. It is essential to get used to creative attitudes in order to identify innovative solutions in the attention of deadlines, optimizing time and costs, and to develop the ability to cooperate with one's work group with empathy and emotional intelligence. To achieve continuous learning in the right way, a combination of four approaches is needed: starting from Education, referring to elements of training that have a firm and monitorable beginning and end, passing through Experience, i.e. learning connected to the employee's daily work, to Exposure as instructive experiences based on relationships, as well as on the sharing of knowledge including feedback between colleagues or between junior and senior figures. And finally, the Environment, which encompasses all the tools, systems and infrastructures to support continuous learning. Thanks to this system, habits and ways of learning change. This type of method presupposes a wide use of forums and discussion groups where the predominant logic is "collaboration", both with teachers and between users themselves.
