The modern world, so global and dynamic, expresses itself in social media and in some of their hashtags. Keywords like leadership, innovation, change and digital transformation, are pretty much basic knowledge for everyone, regardless of their managerial background.
When thinking of the most required skills in modern jobs, the majority of such employability skills concern the individual’s emotional capabilities and ability to work in group. The higher up the job, the more employers are looking for leadership traits, emotional intelligence and positive attitude towards learning, on top of the required technical knowledge.
You can read about the importance of mindfulness and self-awareness of the world around you in so many different contexts, that it is easy to ask yourself questions about who a leader really is, and how you can become one. Some would say that leaders are those with power, others might tend to highlight their charismatic component. Emotional intelligence comes into play, as the ability to recognise your own emotions, control them, and then manage others’ expectations empathetically.
These skills are not easy ones to master, and cannot be taught in a traditional, academic way. Programmes in Business Schools alike tend to give more emphasis on group work, as well as using real companies to enhance students’ understanding on how to apply theories to the real managerial world. However, living your life fully, while experimenting with things that might not have anything to do with your future career, is what makes you you.
There is a certain misconception about what a CV should look like, if you want to land a specific position in a company – or if you are looking to be accepted in one of the world’s most famous universities. Nowadays, innovative companies such as Google, Apple and Facebook, are looking for people that stand out form the crowd, who chase creativity and work well in all sorts of flexible and smart environments. So it is perfectly ok to be confused, maybe disruptive in a positive way.
