What will make young adults succeed professionally?

September 13, 2011

I recently came across an article in some business magazine at a waiting room.

According to the author, who’s the President of a university, the skills or abilities young adults of the XXI century must have in order to succeed professionally are the following:

  • structured and critical thinking
  • work ethic
  • creativity
  • entrepreneurship
  • be able to work in groups
  • tolerance
  • understanding for diversity or conscience of the world that surrounds them
I would add:
  • moral & ethical values
  • time management
  • understanding of what makes people happy
Cool stuff!
