Arinola Be-Inspired✍🏽: Please tell us a little about your book ‘the smart learner’s guide’.
Mr Kamaldeen Kehinde: The Smart Learner’s Guide To The MOST WANTED GLOBAL SKILLS is for people who think of acquiring the most wanted global skills and those who possess these skills but feel unworthy because they do not have the smart guidelines to use these skills to achieve success. It focuses on the things I have learned and things that work for me. I have revealed the key strategy in positioning oneself for global opportunities.
The book is for anyone who has a goal of being successful. Your culture, race, age, educational level, nationality, gender, or profession does not matter. It is written to help you prioritize what to learn.
Arinola Be-Inspired✍🏽: Would you advice undergraduates to involve their selves in other things aside academics?
If yes, please tell us which skills you would advise and why?
Mr Kamaldeen Kehinde: Yes, I would advice undergraduates to involve themselves in acquiring new skills (especially 21st-century skills), it is very essential in today’s economy. You can’t rely solely on your school certificate.
It is no longer news that COVID-19 has changed a lot in our today system, many people have been forced to adopt some unusual measure towards work approach. The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has resulted in many people working from home. So you might be wondering – What career jobs can I start, What Skill is required of me to be relevant?
We are all a fan of acquiring these skills, educators and workforce experts alike often warn that we need improved 21st-century skills. Without these skills, they will not be able to successfully participate in the global economy. They won’t be adequately prepared for college and work.
Arinola Be-Inspired✍🏽: True.
What are the skills you would advice undergraduates to engage themselves in?
Mr Kamaldeen Kehinde: Well, we have much insight across the internet, it all depends on where you source your information, a relevant report case study explain the 21st Century Skills as more than Computers and Technology.
The twelve 21st Century skills are:
The above skills are intended to help you keep up with the lightning-pace of today’s modern markets. Each skill is unique in how it helps you, but they all have one quality in common.
They’re essential in the age of the Internet. They are skills you are familiar with but don’t take it as important. A lot of successful people today possess these skills and its the secret to be relevant in the modern world.
Arinola Be-Inspired✍🏽: What would be your advice to a 100 level Student?
Mr Kamaldeen Kehinde: My advice to a 100 level student is “Don’t just learn anything and everything. Prioritize what you would like to learn.”
No one is awarded for possessing the highest number of skills. Rather, they are recognized for what they can do with those skills. It is okay to know a bit about everything but do not try to fit into everything. You simply need to prioritize whatever you want to learn, taking cognizance of the fact that not all masterclasses are for you, and not every free training is for you. Also, not all lectures are for you and not all seminars are worth your time. It is advisable to pay attention to only the things that you need to know and can use to solve the challenges you are facing at the moment.
Arinola Be-Inspired✍🏽: What is your best inspirational quote sir?
Mr Kamaldeen Kehinde: I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
