Futureproof Your Employability

How to Futureproof Your Employability Through the Super Skills of Agility

The modern workplace is characterised by constant change and disruption. To stay employable, workers need to be agile. That is, they must be able to swiftly adapt to fluctuating situations and handle uncertainties. By developing key skills of adaptability, critical thinking, and learning, you can futureproof your career.

Embrace Change and Discomfort

The first super skill of agility is getting comfortable with change. It sounds simple, but this can bring up strong feelings such as anxiety and trigger imposter syndrome. Start to seek out assignments that force you outside your comfort zone and build your change tolerance muscle. Rather than resisting change, view it as an opportunity for growth. 

Critical Thinking and Innovation

With business conditions rapidly evolving, the ability to scrutinise options, anticipate outcomes, and create novel solutions becomes mandatory. To be able to exercise skills such as critical thinking and creative problem-solving, you and your team need to feel psychologically safe. Both the Agile Team Coaching  (ICP-ACC) and Agile Team Facilitator (ICP-ATF) courses can help you gain the skills to cultivate a safe, supportive and collaborative atmosphere where teams can thrive and contribute their best.

Continuous Learning Mindset

Every day is a school day! Learning doesn’t stop at graduation. Adopt a growth mentality, focused on relentlessly upskilling yourself. Identify emerging in-demand agile skills in your industry and undertake training via online courses, workshops and bootcamps. Set quarterly learning goals and share your progress with peers to stay accountable.

By intently focusing on adaptability, critical thinking, and continuous upskilling, you can build career resilience regardless of external changes. Turn agility into your superpower. Boldly volunteer for stretch assignments and gain skills like agile coaching and facilitation that let you bring teams together and guide them through uncertainty. The future rewards those who can rapidly respond to its demands.

Next, find out why agile coaching skills are essential in the evolving world of work.
