Artificial intelligence (AI) and automation means employees are increasingly tasked with jobs only humans can do. As machines continue to master cognitive tasks, soft skills like problem-solving, empathy, negotiation, and persuasion will become more valuable. There is no reason men should not excel at these tasks, but historically these skills have been more identified with and encouraged in women. Learning to adapt to the situation and mastering emotional intelligence (EQ) is critical for future employment success. Many women are natural problem solvers and innovative thinkers who often see solutions where others don’t. Learn to use your interpersonal skills to succeed in the next technical frontier while advocating for yourself and other women.
