The world is changing.
We live in the information age, and the trend is shifting in favor of more highly skilled knowledge-workers. According to the 2018 Future of Jobs Report, 75 million jobs are expected to be displaced by 2022 in 20 major economies. So what is causing the skills gap? Here are three key factors:
Acceleration in Technology
Continual developments in technology require unique skills that are necessary for most organizations (37%).
Fast growth leads to lack of talent capable of moving into management positions with leadership skills (31%).
Essential Skills Are Missing
Candidates are lacking identifiable hard and soft skills that stand out in a competitive job market (30%).
There’s compelling evidence the skills gap is real
Recruiters are saying the workforce simply lacks the hard and soft skills needed to fill the ever-increasing number of high-skilled jobs today. Those jobs range from entry-level positions for college graduates to leadership roles within an organization. Human resource leaders reported that the skill gap grew 12% since last year (WES/FW). If there’s clearly a gap today, what will it look like in the future?

Organizations and institutions are looking for ways to address the soft skills gap from the outside-in. FranklinCovey courses are based on timeless principles of effectiveness with an inside-out approach.
Society wants a quick fix to solve problems. Leadership skills and techniques are important to develop, but real behavior change to become a great leader is challenging. Stephen R. Covey (author of the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People) taught that “You simply can’t think efficiency with people. You think effectiveness with people and efficiency with things.” An outside-in approach ignores the four human endowments that are essential to behavior change: self awareness, conscience, independent will, and creative imagination.
Rather than focus directly on the leadership skills and techniques that need to be improved, it is more effective to start by helping you reflect on your own character and paradigms. FranklinCovey will help you see leadership with a whole new perspective. In this process, you will identify your strengths and weaknesses, as well as the root cause for the actions you take. FranklinCovey Academy instructors will help you adopt this same See-Do-Get model in preparing you to become a principle-centered leader in order to achieve lasting results.
