The future requires individuals to develop both an entrepreneurial mindset as well as empathy. We need to be agile, hone our ability to tune in to the shifting needs of markets, and to more deeply understand customers and key users. In order to fuel innovation individuals will learn how to:
- See new opportunity by developing the ability to understand circumstances and the challenges they create
- Assess risk and take appropriate action
- Apply these approaches to problem solving at work or in their personal life and/or communities.
