Individuals who are rational problem solvers are characterised by their ability to identify problems or questions, gather relevant information, process that knowledge, and analyse what’s happening around them before coming to conclusions or developing workable solutions. Related skills include analytical thinking, critical thinking, and complex problem-solving capabilities.
Rational problem-solving focuses on using objective information and forming data-based conclusions rather than relying on subjective thinking and intuition. It involves taking a rational, measured approach to evaluating the world around us following a formalised, sequential path.
It involves processes and techniques that need to be taught before they can become second-nature.
Once a child learns to discern information and investigate its usefulness and accuracy, such abilities will become a natural extension of their native intelligence and curiosity about the world around them.

Activity 5: The Creativity Builder
In this module, we define what creative thinking is, why it’s essential and how creative thinkers impact the workplace. Then, we’ll show you how you can nurture this essential skill and provide your child with the basis for success in the future
Rather than being self-assured, creative and original thinkers are sceptical. They question everything and dig for answers. Creative thinkers aren’t afraid of being wrong or making a mistake. They have the integrity to admit that the conclusions they reach aren’t the ones they expected to find and the willingness to change their minds or follow the logic to its natural conclusion.
Creative and original thinking allows children to take the knowledge that they’ve obtained from books and through life experience and apply it in new and unique ways to meet challenges and overcome obstacles.
Giving a child the freedom and space to stretch their imagination helps them plant the seeds of greatness.

Collaboration, what we sometimes call teamwork, is not a new concept. We teach our children to play nice with others, schools combine students into groups to work on labs and projects together, and companies prioritize team building through events, workshops, and other activities that are meant to reinforce the idea of a collaborative workforce.
However, the jobs of the future will require a level of flexibility and innovation that goes beyond ordinary team-building and cooperation.
The kind of collaboration we’ll need in tomorrow’s workplace is of a more specialized variety. It’s premised on the idea that each of us brings something different to the table and combines social acumen, high-level communication skills and agile thinking with a dash of creativity.
These are among the fundamental talents and abilities that will be essential as we veer deeper into the fourth industrial revolution and the information age.

Activity 5: Walking in Their Shoes
It is difficult to find anyone who will admit to being closed-minded. Unfortunately, that is one of the blind spots that come with this common personality trait. The reality is that if you are an adult and identify as being human, the chances are that you will be viewing the world through your own lens. No matter who you are or what your background is, scientists tell us that we are all victims of what is known as confirmation bias. We go about our lives subconsciously accepting information that supports our view of reality while quietly disregarding anything that does not.
As parents, we want our children to grow into compassionate, empathetic adults. But empathy is not merely a social grace. It’s is a critical life, employment, and people skill that will only grow in value as our workspaces become more global and automated.
Some people seem naturally more empathetic than others. But almost anyone can develop the capacity for compassion and the ability to relate to others if they are taught from an early age. Teaching empathy begins at home by modelling such behaviour and introducing the activities included in this module.

Activity 5: Piece by Piece
As children, we are bombarded, from an early age, with information about what to learn. However, we are rarely ever taught how to learn, and the absence of this skillset is responsible for an enormous amount of struggle in many people throughout all age groups. Some children grow up thinking that they lacked intelligence when all they needed was the right techniques, and the knowledge that there are different types of learners in the world. Some think fast, and some think slow. Some speed through a topic picking up enough information to make it look like they have a good understanding, but they miss the details and do not make the deeper connections that their slower counterparts come away with.
Learning is critical to a successful human life and teaching the techniques that can help children learn information faster and more effectively should be a necessary part of every child’s education.
When a child becomes aware that everyone learns in different ways, it increases their confidence by teaching them how to tailor their learning to their particular style. It can be like the proverbial light bulb going off over their head, and when they learn about how their brain works, they become highly motivated, eager to learn and more likely to reach outside of their comfort zone.
There is no shortage of ideas and opinions out there about how to learn most effectively, but as for many of the other areas in this course, we will focus on the leading concepts that are backed by research and scientific study. The importance of teaching your child how to learn should not be underestimated. The proper techniques can unlock a child’s hidden potential, infuse them with a passion for learning, and turn them into life-long seekers of knowledge.

Activity 3: The Genie Of The Lamp
Activity 4: 30 Day Challenge
Activity 5: Setting Smart Goals
We all have them to some extent, especially on New Year’s Eve.
But, how many of us really know how to set practical goals and create the momentum and follow-through necessary to reach them? Sure, we might say “I want to achieve X by this date and time.” Some of us even write down a goal or two in the form of a to-do list or vague collection of objectives.
However, too few of us are able to consistently break things down into a set of concrete, actionable steps that will take us from point A to whatever our own particular X factor may be.
The problem is, most of us weren’t taught how to engage in goal-setting activities that are realistic, measurable, and attainable. In fact, short of productivity exercises and the seminars some of us attend as adults, the bulk of the population has no comprehensive idea of where to begin.
It certainly isn’t something that we’re taught at primary school.
Learning to create goals, no matter how small or ambitious, is essential to making progress in almost every aspect of our lives. As adults, we struggle to fit these goals into the day-to-day minutiae of working, paying bills, and finding a proper work/life balance. So, our goals tend to get put off as we lose sight of them in all of the clutter that is modern life.
We can stop that from happening to our children by helping them learn how to create a personal roadmap to success as they grow from an attentive student to independent adult. Learning how to create and map the steps to realizing our personal vision involves learning and leveraging a very specific set of skills at an early age. This will turn best practices for personal or professional success into a life-long, ingrained way of life.

Resilience is defined as the ability to bounce back when faced with adversity. Those who are resilient don’t let life get them down. Adaptability is the quality of being able to respond and adjust to new conditions.
Our Resilient Adapters face challenges with determination, make adjustments, power through difficult times, and emerge on the other side, stronger and wiser.
Being a child today does not come without its challenges. According to mental health organisations, a worryingly high percentage of our children are suffering from anxiety and other mental health problems. They are growing up in a world full of technology and distraction. Social media and the internet are essentially enormous social experiments that none of us officially signed up for. These technologies are changing how we connect to others, and nobody knows what the long-term implications will be.
Not only does being resilient lead to success, but it also reduces stress by giving us an essential tool for coping with adversity. But, developing a resilient, positive attitude is a learned behaviour that should start young.
Kids are tough, but they also model our behaviour. Children learn to become anxious
when they see us experiencing anxiety. It’s normal to become fearful when our kids try new things or take those first steps toward independence. How we react will be a strong determining factor in how they learn to view challenges and adversity in life.
Barring extraordinary circumstances, few problems in life can’t be overcome with grace, grit, and determination. We can’t control external forces, but we can change how we respond to them. Passing that ability on to our children through example and guidance is essential to their mental health, emotional well-being, and development as they grow into adulthood.
As parents, we hope that our children won’t have to face much adversity, but if they do, you will have prepared them to meet that adversity with resilience as they adapt and thrive in the uncertain future they are entering.

Activity 5: Change Your Self-Talk
Have you ever observed a very young baby as they first begin to explore their world? They lie for long periods of time, engrossed in random shadows on the wall, the toys in their crib or playpen, or their mother’s face. We smile in delight as they become endlessly fascinated by the fact that they have fingers and toes that they can wiggle.
We are born with an innate curiosity about ourselves and the world around us. Unfortunately, we begin to lose this sense of wonder as we grow up and become indoctrinated into the adult world. Rather than encouraging and preserving that sense of wonder, well-meaning parents and educators bombard us with, instructions, facts and adult-directed activities that dampen curiosity and that sense of discovery.
Creating obedient cogs to work in a machine was just what was needed in those early days of the industrial revolution. However, what our world will need in the future are optimistic seekers who approach life with a sense of “What if …?” rather than “What next?”
By teaching your child to become an optimistic seeker, you’re providing them with the foundation for more than just future success on the job. You’ll also instil in them the grit, determination, and confidence that agile minds need to become the leaders and innovators of tomorrow.

Activity 4: Big Picture Thinking
Activity 5: The Mine of Opportunity
When asked what they want to be when they grow up, children often recite a laundry list of typical occupations like fireman, veterinarian, or even pop star. Not many kids jump up in excitement and yell “I want to be an entrepreneur”.
However, factors like social change, economics, and most importantly, technology, may mean that many of the jobs we take for granted will no longer be there in the future. Even white-collar standards that teachers and parents steer children toward, such as doctor, lawyer, and accountant, are being winnowed out by automation.
These dire predictions aren’t the only reason that raising a child with an entrepreneurial mindset will help ensure employability when they’re ready to transition from school to the world of work. The same characteristics shared by business leaders and innovators throughout history are the very same skill sets that are sought by employers. In the future, they will be the rule rather than the exception.
There are many people who think like entrepreneurs without going into business for themselves. Whether or not they eventually become the next Steve Jobs or Elon Musk, learning and honing innate talents and soft skills like brave thinking, self-motivation, and people management will provide your child with advantages that support success in every facet of their lives.
Not every child will grow up to become an entrepreneur. But, learning to think like one will provide them with a considerable advantage in a world that’s rapidly changing. Such an achievement will require a shift in mindset rather than acquiring technical knowledge or education. Those things are still important, but they will become less of a determining factor for success amid the fourth industrial revolution.

Activity 5: My Book Of Wonder
We’ve arrived at a time in history where the changes are coming so fast that keeping up with them will require a concerted effort from parents, teachers, employers, and government systems to prepare future workers for possibly the most significant periods of change in modern history.
Although there are many theories about what this brave new world will look like in terms of career opportunities and education, one thing is sure: Forever learners will have the best chance of coming out ahead of the game.
Education is a continual process, not a means to achievement that ends when we finish formal schooling or our initial job training. We have in our hands’ access to more knowledge than at any other time in history; many of these resources are free and available to anyone who wants them.
But, this learning shouldn’t be entirely unguided or left to chance. We have to recognise the disheartening fact that in our mission to raise life-long learners; we do not have school on our side. Part of the inherent design of the school system, unfortunately, suppresses curiosity and a love of learning. For those parents that don’t home-school, it is even more important to counter any negative impact the school system has on a child by cultivating that passion for knowledge at home.
This includes giving your child access to wonder and discovery. Fill your home with games, books, art and anything that gets them fired up about learning. Introduce them to varied experiences and different people. Your child needs to finish their education with a positive connection to learning and an electric energy and excitement for the future and the world around them.
Until there’s a revolution in how kids are educated, it’s up to us as parents and caregivers to instil and nourish a love of learning in our children to ensure that they have the best chance of thriving in a rapidly changing world.
