”Too often in the everyday life of workplaces emotions have been considered as a sign for weakness, soft skills, unmeasurable and purely something fluffy,” writes researcher Henrika Anttila.
Fortunately, a change is on its way: in many organizations, socio-emotional skills are more and more seen as key competences.
There is still one thing we with the machines 10–0: social interaction.
”As the AI and automatisation are rapidly developing further, the most valuable human-centric work requires cognitive skills,” Anttila says. Computers might beat us in many skills and drills, but there is still one thing where we win the machines 10–0: social interaction.
Leadership is a lot about emotions: A great leader understands their employees and is able to support them through difficult emotions. Also as a leader, you have to face feelings of disappointment, failing and frustration. Learning leadership skills is closely tied to emotions, too: joy of understanding and succeeding are important motivators.
Emotions and Learning is one of the main topics of Dare to Learn 2018. This visionary event is not a new pocket full of how-to-teach-tricks, but a place to reflect learning, think about what it is and could be and how it should be changed. Other big themes in Dare to Learn 2018 are self-directed learning and learning for sustainability.
We are thrilled to be part of the event as one of the partners.
