Wisdom is a fuzzy concept; we know it when we see it, but we can’t always put it into words. We believe it is associated with age or experience, but we also recognize that someone can have the experience, but not be wise.
This course looks past the fuzziness to examine wisdom as a set of competencies that can be defined, developed, and used in the workplace.
In a world where more and more data is being processed by AI and machine learning, the value of human judgment becomes crucial. This course will help you understand and demonstrate how the wisdom you have built up over years can be a critical advantage for an employer.
