The Shift Towards Creativity

In recent news, Chief Executive Officer of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg stated, ‘most future jobs will be more creative than traditional labour or service’ on the Lex Fridman podcast. The CEO’s statement is becoming more and more apparent with employers seeking out employees equipped with creative skills even when the job is not within the field.

Just about every profession relies on creativity. Innovation in technology, applications of scientific principles and problem-solving all require creativity to generate ideas and strategies. Despite being seen as an ‘irresponsible’ career option, creative careers have stood the test against scrutiny and ridicule. It is astonishing to see how our world is progressively shifting towards creativity not just in career matters but also in daily living.

A report from LinkedIn, covering over 660+ million professionals and 20+ million jobs, placed creativity as the top skill in demand by employers back in 2020. The demand for these skills in employees continues to be on a rise. Looking at 39 transferable skills, there is a strong likelihood of growth for creativity and those adept in the skills between now and 2030.

What are creative skills?

Individuals adept in creative skills tend to look at things from a unique perspective which comes hand in hand with problem-solving. Creativity enables you to solve complex problems using interesting ways to approach tasks.

While creative professions such as artists, writers, or designers see more obvious uses for creative skills, all professions can benefit from developing and deploying these skills. Merely comprehending creative skills can spark inspiration or motivation, presenting you with opportunities to build on your creative skillset is a way to not only move forward but to have fun while doing so.

Getting back to the matter of Zuckerberg’s vision, his statement presents itself as a reminder to future-proof your career by learning new skills. You can simply improve your creative skills by engaging in several exercises and activities such as reading regularly to mentally exercise your imaginative skills, listening to music while you work to put you in a more creative frame of mind or perhaps even doodling on a piece of paper.

However, improving your creative skills through such exercises can only do so much. To purposefully approach the comprehension of transferable creative skills, what better way than to attend a workshop that will groom you with the most in-demand skills.
