The meta-skilled organization.

Skills allow us to execute. Meta-skills like empathy, resilience, creativity, and self-awareness allow us to evolve. As organizations and industries face increasingly rapid change and disruption, in which job descriptions are fluid and agility is essential, meta-skills are fast becoming the currency of talent.

See clearly, move quickly, stay the course

Meta-skills are the connective tissue that allow people and organizations to let go of the skills that have anchored their successful past and master and embrace new ways of working – in other words, to evolve.


Packed with ideas on both how to foster the development of meta-skills for yourself, and how to build meta-skilled organizations as stewards of talent, this keynote lays out a framework for six key meta-skills that allow individuals and organizations to see clearly, move quickly, and stay the course.

Over the course of this keynote, participants will explore:

  • How the nature of work is being upended by rapid digitization and changing social norms.
  • Six key meta-skills in three categories: See Clearly, Move Quickly, and Stay The Course.
  • A four-step plan to start building meta-skilled organizations.
