Discover Twenty One Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, President: Naomi Taniguchi) announced on December 23, 2022, “High Performer Thinking: Seven Thoughts and Behaviors Common to People Who Continue to Produce High Results” (Masuko Yusuke and Takeshi Masumura) has been published.
What is necessary in the age of AI and the age of 100-year lifespans The evolution of AI in the last few years has been remarkable. There is also a study that AI has acquired the academic ability to pass a difficult private university, which suggests that it will become almost worthless except for work that can only be done by humans.
Then, what is “work that only humans can do”?
For example, there is the “symbol grounding problem” as an example that AI cannot understand and solve.
Even if humans do not know “zebra”, they can imagine “zebra” from the knowledge about “sima” and “horse”. This is possible because humans understand the meaning of “sima” and “horse” and can think of multiplying the concept of “horse” with the concept of “sima”. However, even if the computer recognizes “shima” and “horse” as words, it cannot connect the two.
AI has the academic ability to pass a difficult private university, but why can’t it do such a simple thing?
It is the thought of understanding the meaning of “shima” and “horse” and multiplying the concept of “horse” with the concept of “shima”, which is necessary to imagine in the brain even though you have never seen a zebra. But it’s something AI can’t acquire. Also, in order for AI to come up with some kind of answer, it has to select “information necessary for judgment” from “all information”. In our daily lives and businesses, we distinguish between “items to be considered” and “items that can be ignored” out of the seemingly infinite amount of information, and continue to make decisions under time constraints. However, AI cannot make such a choice.
In other words, what only humans can do is the ability to delve into, think about, and act on problems for which there is no correct answer from various angles. This is called “intellectual fitness”.
In today’s era of 100-year lifespans, many business people, including us, may work until the age of 80.
Now that Japan’s unique system of lifetime employment is coming to an end, it will be difficult to stay at one company and continue working until retirement age. You have to make multiple career shifts, such as changing jobs or occupations, or starting an independent business. And for that reason, it is important to acquire the intellectual physical strength that can grow autonomously.
The era of seeking only skills is over
Recently, I often hear the word “re-skilling”.
According to the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, “reskilling” is “acquisition of necessary skills in order to take on a new occupation or to adapt to a drastic change in the skills required in the current occupation.” is defined by
This is a human resource strategy for the DX era, based on the fact that digitalization will create new jobs and drastically change the way work is done.
However, no matter how much new skills you acquire, if you do not have your own thinking and behavior patterns, you will not be able to make good use of the acquired skills. In the first place, if you don’t have a thought and behavior pattern that tries to acquire skills, you can’t acquire skills.
In addition, skills are also updated because there is a way of thinking and behavior. Thinking and behavior patterns are the foundation (foundation) for updating (improving) intellectual physical strength.
In the era of the 100-year life, it is necessary to acquire not only skills but also ways of thinking and behavior.
What is “high performer analysis”?
This book unravels the secrets of people who are consistently achieving high results (high performers) and summarizes them in a form that anyone can imitate. It is a guidebook for effortlessly uploading. We will introduce 7 thoughts and behavior patterns of high performers that we have seen in the “high performer analysis”.
“High performer analysis” is to “visualize the elements that make excellent human resources excellent human resources”.
Specifically, by interviewing people who have consistently and stably achieved results in a specific group, grouping the extracted characteristic thinking and behavior patterns, and verbalizing the common essence. , we will visualize the elements.
In this book, we interviewed and analyzed more than 1,000 people who continue to produce high results, from top talent in major companies to top athletes. .
We live in a VUCA era in which it is difficult to foresee the future, and because it is now said that we live to be 100 years old, it is becoming more and more important to visualize and acquire the “unique human abilities” that cannot be replaced by AI. . Here are some tips for doing so, along with specific examples.
