Description

High-Impact Talent

High-Impact Talent is not defined by a simple check-list of skills. Rather, high-impact talent is driven by the unique labour market dynamics of a region, sector or organization, and is anchored in an individual’s capacity to effectively adapt and thrive in perpetually turbulent market conditions. These dynamic capabilities enable people to identify emerging opportunities and reconfigure their skills or acquire new skills to thrive. People with dynamic capabilities are future-ready. They lead trends, they don’t follow. Click here to read more high-impact talent and dynamic capabilities.

While the entire education system must ensure that we are developing future-ready students who possess the capacity to adapt to these dynamic conditions, higher education has a unique role in supporting a graduate’s professional transition.

Collaborating to Close the High-Impact Talent Gap

To confront this challenge, Mount Royal University’s Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship is leading a research program exploring our dynamic labour market and how this impacts the development of adaptable high-impact talent who thrive in our new economy. To support this, the Institute and MRU Career Services developed the free open-access Designing YOU series, including 12 books and 14 podcasts, to support young adults in planning their personal and professional development.

As part of this initiative, you are invited to attend the High-Impact Talent Roundtable where we will focus on exploring how innovations in work-integrated learning can support developing the high-impact talent that will thrive today and in the future. Questions we will explore include:

  1. What are the skills that innovative employers require today and in the future?
  2. What is the gap between employers’ emerging needs and the skills graduates possess?
  3. What role can work-integrated learning play in ensuring graduates are future ready?
  4. What are global best practices in work-integrated learning today?
