Eight Critical Skills for the Future

by Gary Woodill on April 8, 2011

What do you need to know to thrive in the future? Thomas Frey, Senior Futurist at the DaVinci Institute, has listed eight critical skills for the future that he believes should be part of the education of young people. Adults could benefit from these skills as well. The skills in Frey’s list are:

  1. Communication Management
  2. Reputation Management
  3. Privacy Management
  4. Information Management
  5. Opportunity Management
  6. Technology Management
  7. Relationship Management
  8. Legacy Management

in addition to the eight new critical skills listed above, Frey says that there are “two traditional skills that need to be radically updated to match the needs of today’s world.” These are time management and money management.

The above list is not meant to be all-inclusive for what is needed in the future of learning. But read the descriptions of each of the above skills and you will see that we all need to shift our thinking about almost all aspects of your lives.
