1113: How To Measure Your Adaptability Quotient (AQ)
40% of the jobs that exist today will not exist in 10 years’ time. Fuelled by technology, change is coming at a rate that exceeds our ability to adapt. What got past generations here, won’t get the next to where they want to be.
Rapid technological change means we must all keep learning. Our ability to adapt can be measured by our adaptability quotient (AQ) which is becoming a big talking point for those serious about their future career success.
In today's episode of Tech Talks Daily, I want to learn more about AQ, or adaptability quotient which is the first-ever holistic metric of adaptability in the workplace. At Adaptai, their aim is to not only quantify and provide insight into AQ but also to help individuals and organizations to improve their ability to adapt in the fastest period of change in human history via their future coaching and digital training programs.
They measure adaptability across three core dimensions (ACE):
Ability (your adaptability skills), your Character (the innate aspects of Self that determine the ways in which you may approach adapting), and Environment (how your environment can help or hinder your adaption).
Together with twelve sub-dimensions, such as Grit, Resilience, Mindset, and Learning Drive, they can give an accurate picture of where you are in terms of your AQ journey. AQai are working collaboratively with experts, universities, professors, leaders in psychology, people analytics, and human behaviour to build a robust and accurate measure of human adaptability in the workplace.
Ross Thornley, co-founder of Adaptai joins me to talk about they are making a difference. I learn why people are moving from EQ to AQ and why it’s the key to the future of work.
