The rapid changes shaping our world are having a significant impact on whole sectors of our economy. Even before the Covid-19 crisis, The World Economic Forum stated that by 2022, the core skills required to perform most roles would change by 42%. It has called for a re-skilling revolution. The current crisis has intensified this call to action. Individuals and organisations need to adapt and re-skill to succeed. Central to this is the development of transversal skills.

What are Transversal Skills?

Transversal skills are also known as ‘soft skills,’ ‘transferable skills’ or ‘power skills.’ These include innovation, creativity, entrepreneurial agility, analytical skills, business acumen, teamwork and communication skills. They translate across professions and are not confined to a specific industry, job or company. With these skills, you are better positioned to make a career change, gain a promotion or to help your organisation identify innovative ways to thrive. Transversal skills are in high demand from employers across sectors and industries globally.
