Description

The Soft Skills of Leadership

Study after study has shown that soft skills are vital in helping individuals and businesses succeed—perhaps even more so than STEM (Science, Technology, Education and Math) skills. According to a recent report from Boston College, Harvard University, and the University of Michigan, training in soft skills such as communication and problem solving can raise productivity and retention by 12 percent and deliver a 250 percent return on investment. But how can you develop your soft skills, and use them to your advantage? Judy Hoberman will share how soft skills can help set you apart and give you a competitive edge in the workplace. A sought-after speaker, Judy uses personal stories and a sense of humor to discuss gender differences in the workplace, and shed light on how both genders can better support one another’s successes.

You will hear:

• How soft skills give you a competitive edge in the workplace

• Why using your soft skills is the best way to set yourself apart

• Understanding the seven essential qualities of leadership
