In this TEDx talk, John Marshall Roberts (CEO of Worldview Learning) shares his vision on the “next big skill” we are to develop in order to survive and flourish in the decades to come.

This “next big skill” is empathy.  Roberts proves to us that empathy is not simply a prerequisite for group hugs and hippie circles. Empathy is a hard skill. A skill that is absolutely necessary in today’s social, political, environmental , and certainly, in business realms.

“Empathy works. Let’s face it. In this world, cynicism is everywhere. The ability to take a truly great idea and make it actually happen requires a community of people with a shared vision, who understand in their bones that their own individual fates are inextricably intertwined.”
