What's the one skill that makes you irreplaceable? Opportunity recognition.

When you read about the changing world and how we need to be prepared...it is not surprising that learning new skills will be something that we all need to look forward to. I pulled two excerpts from a Linkedin Daily Rundown that points to just what we have been talking about in class. New opportunities are all around us. We need to be confident in our ability to learn and adapt to our surroundings. Read the two excerpts below and click through all the links that are embedded below. 
AI experts are a hot commodity. There’s a major labor shortage in artificial intelligence, and that means experts are earning big bucks. There are only about 10,000 people in the world who have the experience and skills to do deep research on AI, reports The New York Times — and those specialists are increasingly sought after as the technology gains traction, with yearly compensation ranging from $300,000 to double-digit millions. Firms like Facebook and Google aren’t just competing with traditional tech rivals, but also with auto companies as the self-driving car race heats up. • Share your thoughts: #AIWorkerShortage Here is the link to the Rundown.

Idea of the Day: “In an uncertain and changing world, there is still a competitive advantage to being human,” writes Kellogg School of Management CIO Betsy Ziegler. One key way to stay ahead? Learn how to learn.
“Often students believe that once they cross the graduation stage, they are done – they have reached the finish line. In today’s world this is an impossible end point – they can not stand still, they must have the confidence and persistence to assess their skills, understand their gaps and seek help in closing them.”
