With the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), humanity has entered a new phase. Geopolitics, business, industries, and jobs are changing so rapidly that we cannot predict the competencies needed to succeed.
The 4IR has become the lived reality for millions of people around the world and is creating new opportunities for business, government, and individuals, and it also threatens a new divergence and polarization.
We believe that Achievement motivation, curiosity, Insight, Engagement, and Determination will be the leading attributes for success in addition to the factors like intelligence, experience, performance, and specific competencies, particularly the ones related to leadership.
Motivation towards achievement
A fierce commitment to excel in the pursuit of unselfish goals. High potentials have great ambition and want to leave their mark, but they also aspire big, collective goals, show deep personal humility, and invest in getting better at everything they do. We consider motivation is primary attribute since it is a stable, and usually unconscious-quality. If someone is driven purely by selfish motives, that probably won’t change.
a penchant for seeking out new experiences, knowledge, and candid feedback and an openness to learning and change
The wherewithal to fight for difficult goals despite challenges and to bounce back from adversity
The ability to gather and make sense of information that suggests new possibilities
a knack for using emotion and logic to communicate a persuasive vision and connect with people
