Jobs Now and Then

The skills and knowledge needed to thrive today are very different from those in the past. At the very least current and future workers must be able to get along with each other. Those skills are often called Emotional IQ Skills or EQ.

As I look at the skills and attitudes currently demanded I am struck by how rare it is to find a school and/or church that has a focus on them. Each is a skill used by those with good EQ but our world is tending to crush EQ in favor of revenge, riots, hate, and insane marches.

Where in our public square do you see:

1. Complex Problem Solving
2. Critical Thinking
3. Creativity
4. People Management
5. Coordination
6. Empathy
7. Patience
8. Forgiveness
9. Peace
10. ETC.

What are you and you family doing to improve EQ Skills? Here is my advice.

Get busy and start learning asap!
