Technology professionals today need a balance of hard technology skills and power skills such as creativity, collaboration, and modern leadership.

In a study by Gartner, 81% of business leaders cite skills shortage as a top organisational risk in 2024-25. This makes the skill gap the No.1 priority for HR leaders. In another study, leaders and IT executives said they see the talent shortage as the most significant adoption barrier to 64% of emerging technologies.

Today’s technology professionals should be able to navigate and leverage technology effectively, but more importantly, leaders agree that power skills like empathy, agility, creativity, and resilience are just as important as hard technical and task-related skills.

In this exclusive webinar, we will deep-dive into how the recent shifts in the technology landscape are calling for deep-learning initiatives – which are at the heart of some of the most sophisticated disruption in the IT Industry.

  • How do you define "power skills" in the context of technology professionals, and why are they increasingly valued alongside technical skills?
  • Why do you think there is a gap between the technical skills and leadership skills within IT teams? What are some potential factors contributing to this gap?
  • What are some potential challenges that organisations may face when trying to incorporate deep-learning initiatives into their training and development programs, and how can these challenges be addressed?
  • What strategies can IT leaders implement to cultivate a culture that values and prioritises the development of both technical and power skills among their teams?
  • How might the recent shifts in the technology landscape, such as the rise of AI and automation, impact the skill requirements for technology professionals in the future?
