Skills to learn in 2022

While 2022 may throw a few curveballs, the beginning of the new year is always a perfect time to focus on career growth. To help motivate you, here are some skills you should definitely learn in 2022.

Problem-solving

In the future, it will pay to think critically and creatively about your career — and to add unique skills, experiences and connections to your professional toolkit. Your efforts to exist outside-the-box will not only help you come up with novel solutions, but will give you the tools to communicate that you are capable of solving new and exciting problems.

Diet and nutrition

Hands up if eating healthier was one of your New Year’s resolutions? If you’re looking to improve your diet in 2022, there are a number of diet and nutrition courses to help you do just that. Not only does what you eat affect your physical health, it also impacts your wellbeing, with healthier choices proven to improve both of these things.

Communication

Communication skills are important for employees at any level within a company to have. Companies where leaders possess strong communication skills are reportedly making a 47% higher return, compared to competitors with poor communication. Companies desire employees with effective communication skills, including verbal and written, to increase revenue return rates. You can develop your communication skills by learning how to effectively speak to groups and individuals through online and in-person soft skill development courses.

Learn about mental health

Mental health matters. Understanding and taking care of both your own and others’ mental health is extremely important – both in your personal life and at work. In fact, employers are actively seeking out candidates who can bring these hard and soft skills to their team – whether it’s as a leader, manager, co-worker, or friend. And with the effects of the pandemic taking its toll on many people’s mental health, there’s never been a better time to develop your skills.

As the world continues to advance and develop, it’s important to consider what skills you’ll need to stay secure in your career. Learn to make use of these professional skills that will help your growth and development.
