Hello, I'm Hicham El Amrani. I created 21st Century Job Skills because I believe everyone should have access to training that will help their career take flight.

When I discovered the power of soft skills and competencies early in my own career, I saw my career take flight.

It was as if I could handle anything that came my way.

I went from being on the sidelines to being a critical member of my team, sought out for my perspective and ideas, and known for reliably producing results. I became passionate about sharing everything I knew about soft skills and was even asked by my company to lead a soft skills training initiative.

I became such an advocate for soft skills and effective communication that I became a private consultant, working with some of the most powerful leaders and successful organizations in the world to equip them and their teams with the soft skills that ignite creativity, alignment, and ambition.

I can honestly say I was living the dream.

It was when I read one of the World Economic Forum reports about 21st-century job skills that I had my a-ha moment. They determined 10 core skills that employees must have to navigate to success in an increasingly automated world. And as they went through the list, skill by skill, I thought, "These are all soft skills that helped me throughout my career and I know how to teach them to people!"

And thus, the 21st Century Job Skills global online learning platform was born

Each course is built around four core areas that are critical to future success:

Problem-Solving & Critical Thinking

Creativity & Innovation

Collaboration & Communication

I created 21st Century Job Skills to give you the career advantage to thrive in the 21st century
