The context

Transformations underway, particularly in the professional world, require the development of a new set of skills, which are still poorly defined at this stage. We are talking about soft skills, behavioral, social, transversal, interdisciplinary, or simply human skills… For lack of a clear definition, we contrast them with the technical or hard skills which are traditionally taught in business and engineering schools or acquired during a professional career.

In addition to being poorly defined and sometimes very vague and ambiguous, it is now obvious that these soft skills cannot be developed through traditional approaches based on the unilateral and out-of-context transmission of knowledge from an expert to a learner. Developing soft skills is in fact first and foremost about learning in a different way, it is about acquiring the capacities that allow one to adapt to one’s environment and to evolve continuously.

Meta-skills

At Humans Matter, we call these abilities meta-skills, because they are the foundation of skills on which we can develop new ones.

We have identified a set of four meta-skills, which are true guides for behaviors and actions, and a fundamental basis for tomorrow’s jobs and today’s transitions.

« Care »: observing, describing and evaluating the quality of interactions within one’s team, then creating better socio-professional balances;

« Evolving towards collaborative networks »: communicating openly and ensuring that everyone has the information and knowledge they need to carry out their objectives, particularly through collaborative tools.

« Building narratives »: developing plots that create bridges between different elements, raise expectations, and guide towards action. Narratives illustrate desirable futures that foster commitment, especially when they are co-constructed.

« Creating common meaning »: identifying the beliefs, symbols, and mental models of each person, distinguishing between those that converge and those that diverge, and then creating new collective mental models.

Learn Tank©

In 2020, we created the Learn Tank©, a space for pedagogical innovation to allow as many people as possible (managers, students, teachers, training managers, employment professionals, etc.) to develop their meta-skills. Enabling True cognitive design experiences, the Learn Tank© invites participants to reexamine their learning and development practices and positions in a secure, collective setting.

The Learn Tank is by design a form of “living lab”, based on permanent experimentation. It takes the form of a workshop where we come to imagine and test new practices, where we come to confront ourselves with the experiences and ideas of others, and where we come to decipher the cognitive mechanisms that drive our learning capabilities and meta-skills.
