The evolution of work can be summarized in one simple sentence. From muscles to head to heart. Mechanical machines overperformed our muscles and computers will overperform our heads. Now we’re moving to “heart”, i.e. the meta-skills that separate us from computers. The problem is, it’s difficult to measure human skills such as compassion, courage or perseverance with traditional means; how would you measure curiosity with a test or put patience on a scale? Even though there are no tests or degrees for them, we need to put more effort to developing these skills – and that is a leadership challenge.
