For years, academic achievement has always been the bedrock for a successful start to adult working life. Today, in the age of AI, that is a necessary but insufficient condition. All manners of human work that are repetitive and driven by heuristics will be replaced by non-human systems that do not require rest, cost less and do not complain. Research into skills that would be required by young adults for the future shows that even complex human work is increasingly being taken over by machines.
How do we prepare young minds for this kind of future? How can they thrive in a world that sees disruptive changes taking place at breakneck speed? How can they develop a mindset that allows them to always grow, try new things, embrace failure and build towards performance?
In this seminar, GRIT Trainer Chuck shares core principles that fellow parents should adopt in developing their children to go beyond grades.
Learn what you, as parents, should do today for your kids, because it'll be too late tomorrow.
This seminar is a collaboration between The GRIT Academy & Joyous Learning.
Who should attend: Parents who wish to future-proof their kids
Date: 1 June 2019
Time: 3.15 pm to 4.30 pm
