Series #18
Practicing New Skills for the era of Talent Crowd Sourcing


We will hold the session #18 of Davos experience in Tokyo series on Friday, September 19 at our regular venue of Wilson Learning Innovation Center. This will mark the beginning of the new series “Practicing New skills”.
Human capital, though it is perceived to be the critical component for competitiveness today, is facing the need for major transformation. Many current jobs are subject to the replacement by new technological advancement in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, just to name a few. At the same time, new jobs that do not exist today will emerge, opening up more new opportunities for us. Some companies and organizations have begun “Crowd Sourcing of Talent”, i.e. sourcing broadly the best talents throughout the world for the job and/or the project, instead of retaining them within the corporations.
We need to continue effort to learn new skills in the face of accelerating change in the world and of increasing uncertainties in geopolitics, economic and social spaces. The days people’s career consists of single career within the same company are almost over.
The “lifelong learning” has become a strong global trend and has raised a new challenge for all of us.
In order to provide opportunities for us to develop new skills to pursue our ideal life style and vision, “Davos experience in Tokyo series” will add a new section entitled “Practicing New skills for the era of Talent Crowd Sourcing”. The idea behind this series is that we focus on certain skills required to do exciting things in the era of “Talent Crowd Sourcing” and we stay as “works-in-progress” and our skills and capabilities are evolving constantly. In a way, we are in Permanent BETA version of ourselves.
Unlike the past sessions where some issue has been selected with breakout sessions to discuss the topic, we will focus on certain specific skill and offer the opportunity for the participants to practice that skill.
The first of the new series will be on “how to tell a story.” We are expected to tell a story, for better communication and for convincing people, etc. Are some people born great story tellers? Or story-telling is the skill that we can all learn and develop? Our answer is obviously that anybody can be a good story teller by practicing. So we want all of us to learn how to tell a story during our next session.



世界がこれだけ急激に変化し、あちこちで予想もしなかった出来事が地政学的、経済的、社会的に起こる中、仕事や働き方は大きく変わる可能性があります。実際、ひとつの職種、それもひとつの組織でキャリアを終えることが例外となりつつある中、常に新しいスキルや知識を学ぶlifelong learningは、世界の潮流になっています。
そこで、私たちが理想のライフスタイルやビジョンを実現できるように、新しいスキルを開発、実践する場を提供しようと、「ダボスの経験を東京で」では、「人材のクラウドソーシングの時代に備えた新しいスキルの実践」というシリーズを加えます。このシリーズの考え方は、つまり、私たちはみな「仕掛品」Work in Progressである、知識やスキルはどんどん進化するものと捉えています。

  3. This sounds like a very educational session, and what we do need for raising new talents and growing global leaders. However the entrance fee is a little bit expensive for fresh graduates like me and my friends. Hope we can check out some detailed reports after the session.
