Non Routine Leadership™ Certificate

For centuries, the role of leaders has been to guide and direct their teams and organizations in order to pursue growth. But what happens when routine and stable conditions are no longer routine or stable? What happens to the management style that was so dependent on consistent routines to deliver profits? According to Gartner Research, that day has come. Not only is non routine work surging, it’s rising at its fastest pace in history. By 2022, as many as 1 in 5 people will be spending a majority of their day in non-routine problem-solving work. This is evident as many workers adopt a career-fluid mindset, with increasing expectations to re-skill, up-skill, and polyskill at unprecedented speeds. It’s no wonder that Amazon recently announced their Up-skilling 2025 initiative investing $700M in retraining 110,000 employees. They’re not alone. Merck, Verizon, Google, and others have recently discussed changes to hiring approaches to emphasize mental agility and the capacity for learning over skills and experience.

Make no mistake, experience and expertise is still desired. However, it is the non-routine cognitive skills such as judgement, adaptiveness, creativity, communication, and strategic thinking that are surging in demand. This course answers the most important question: “How will you overcome today’s non routine world, and lead?”
