Build 21st Century Skills to Create Happy, Successful Adults 

 In the 21st Century, as automation and AI accelerate, the value of human “soft skills”  including collaboration, creativity, initiative, persistence, empathy, flexibility, and adaptability are becoming increasingly important to the future workplace. 

Today, companies are scrambling to move into new creative directions, or like Blockbuster, Nokia and Sears, face with being pushed out by smaller and nimbler organisations. The lesson: “Innovate or die.” 

Schools must create lifelong learners to enable pivoting of skills to new roles over a lifetime of contributing in the future workplaces, where the most critical skills are entrepreneurship and initiative. This webinar will cover how Montessori education can help individuals develop initiative and a sense of entrepreneurship at a young age, paving the way to a fulfilling and successful future.
