How AIESEC develops the skills you will need by 2020

It is a given fact that the world we live in today is not the same one we will live in tomorrow or five years from now. This constant rhythm of changes is reflected in different aspects of our lives, including career development and skills seeked by the market.

An article released by the World Economic Forum points out the Top 10 seeked skills by companies by the time we reach the year of 2020. As the top 3 we have complex problem solving, critical thinking and creativity, different from 2015 when these last two were represented by coordinating with others and people management skills.

AIESEC is aware of this constant changes and the need to adapt to the younger generations that come in the organization every year. Given that, the organization works with five years visions that guide us towards specific goals. Currently, AIESEC is working for the 2020 vision and one of its statements is ” Shaping what we do around what the world needs”. So, how is AIESEC providing to the world these specific needs and skills seeked?

By developing young leaders through practical and challenging experiences.

And how is this leadership developed?

AIESEC’s leadership development is based upon the Leadership Development Model (LDM) and its four qualities: Self awareness, Empowerment others, Solution orientation and World Citizenship. Each one of these qualities is based on the following skills:

The top one 2020 quality brought by the World Economic Forum’s article, Problem Solving, for example, is very much connected to AIESEC’s quality of being Solution Oriented and the skills of resilience, positivity and taking risks. People Management, another important skill pointed out by the article is related to the Empowering Others quality, by engaging a group of people towards one same goal, working to develop the people from the team and having an effective communication.

So, by enabling youth to develop these leadership skills, AIESEC is contributing to the needs of the near future ahead of us! Want to be a part of this and enable more young talents to develop their leadership potential?
