Don Trone, CEO of 3ethos, wrote about how the future financial advisor will have to offer more in the future.
"The World Economic Forum recently released a new report entitled, The Future of Jobs and Skills. Included was a listing of the top 10 skills that will be valued most by 2020:
1. Complex problem solving 2. Critical thinking 3. Creativity 4. People management 5. Coordinating with others 6. Emotional intelligence 7. Judgement and decision-making 8. Service orientation 9. Negotiation 10. Cognitive flexibility
The capabilities described by this list can be summarized in two words: behavioral governance. What will matter most by 2020, no matter the industry sector or domain, will be a person’s ability to execute and amplify a prudent decision-making process.
What does the above have to do with elite financial advisors? Everything."
