The Flipped Classroom (FC) is a pedagogical model that transfers the work of certain processes of learning outside the classroom and use class time, along with the experience of teachers, to facilitate and enhance other procurement processes and practical knowledge within the classroom.
In the future, may be “Headhunters” become more “Heart-hunters”…
Perhaps companies don´t need people exceptionally intelligent but people who have passion for what they do. Thus, professionals develop their creativity, intuition , curiosity and commitment to make things happen.

Forget a Mentor, find a Sponsor! The new way to fast-track your career.
Don't get me wrong, mentors and role model matters, and you need them, Mentors can build your self-esteem and provide a sounding board but they are not your best ticket to the top.
Who's pulling for you? Who's got your back? Who's putting your hat in the ring? Odds are this person is not a mentor but a sponsor.
Professions resulting from the combination of more traditional professions. In some cases also developing to serve as a bridge between the on-line and off-line world. The barriers between professions are evened. Be willing to jump across specialist knowledge boundaries as technologies and disciplines converge, developing a blend of technical training and 'softer' collaborative skills.
We can´t stop learning at the age of 21. Learning is not confined to childhood or the classroom, but occurs throughout life and in a range of situations. It is the ongoing, voluntary and self-motivated pursuit of knowledge for personal or professional reasons. Therefore, it not only enhances competitiveness and employability; but also social inclusion, active citizenship and personal development.
Take ownership of your learning. The “Teach ME” days are over. You are in charge of your own learning. Don’t put your learning in the hands of anyone else. You are responsible for learning from everything and everyone.
Don’t wait for them to tell you in a class. Learning is like Leadership, it can be learned, but cannot be taught.
Great professionals need agents the same way that sports figures, actors and artists need them.
Professionals who are really good at what they do are highly sought and they need someone to manage their commitments, jobs and projects. The role of the headhunter will flip.
I am my own brand. What differentiates you from the rest?
What makes you different from the pack in a competitive and changing environment? If you don’t know what makes you different and you don’t communicate your message, then how can you expect others to know?
Mentoring is now a 360º activity, and no longer a top-down imposition. We have to learn from other people who provide new perspectives.
E.g. The PWC Mentoring Program partners young associates with senior managers to promote knowledge and skill sharing in social media.
The ideal worker is also “Transdisciplinarity-shaped”. He brings a deep understanding of at least one field, but has the capacity to speak the language of a broader range of disciplines. This requires a sense of curiosity and a willingness to go on learning far beyond the years of formal education. Extended life spans promote multiple careers and exposure to more industries and disciplines.
