Executive education director at the Graduate School of Business explores how people can guarantee future success in their careers.

The emergence of the Fourth Industrial Revolution will in future put a lot of jobs at risk, and is set to disrupt the work environment as we know it.

This is an observation made by the director of executive education at UCT's Graduate School of Business, Kumeshnee West.

According to West, people in leadership roles will have to adapt and learn new skills to enable them to solve complex problems.

She advises on lifelong learning in order to keep your skills relevant even in the changing environment.

Lifelong learning means that we have to keep thinking about what are the skills that we need so that we can keep up with the trends.

Kumeshnee West, director of executive education at UCT's Graduate School of Business

The jobs are changing but we don't even know what the changes are going to be like in a couple of years. We do know though that we have to be constantly growing and learning and adapting to what we are seeing.

Kumeshnee West, director of executive education at UCT's Graduate School of Business

This is about ensuring that the leadership skills that we are developing is going to be sustainable to lead into a very uncertain future.

Kumeshnee West, director of executive education at UCT's Graduate School of Business

The World Economic Forum believes that "in the future, talent is going to be more important than capital.
