Eric Berridge, a co-founder of global consulting agency and a Salesforce strategic partner Bluewolf, an IBM Company, expresses his views on humanities offer skills that are becoming increasingly valuable to the success of business everywhere.
According to him,
- Today’s Technologists are incredibly intuitive.
- Number two, the skills that are imperative and differentiated in a world with intuitive technology are the skills that help us to work together as humans.
He brings in, how the world currently focuses – like, the entire soccer team chasing the ball into the corner, because that’s where the ball is. Which implies, we shouldn’t overvalue a particular stream (STEM Education) which appears to be trending.
His views that I liked (or, I already have in mind):
- Encourage everyone to be whatever they want to be.
- Diversity shouldn’t end with gender or race. We need a diversity of backgrounds and skills, with introverts and extroverts and leaders and followers.
This has been in me for long time:
- Life is like a wheel, nothing stays at top always, it has to come down at one stage
- When everyone opt for the same position which appears to be top – may be a software engineer, who will be a doctor then, who will be farmer then – at least to feed those engineers and doctors?
- Those who opt for the one that is doing great at current time, then they do not have the long time vision
