Did you know many recent studies are suggesting that by 2025, complex problem-solving, critical thinking, creativity, people management and emotional intelligence would be among the most important skills required in the workplace? Another study of hiring leaders found soft skills are an “essential” or “very important” element when making hiring decisions. What’s even more interesting is that many employers reported soft skills are more important than technical skills.
MFF Executive Director Judi Window expertly provides you with the concrete soft skills tools you need to add to your toolbox. Communication, time management, adaptability and collaboration skills – when combined with your technical skills and formal education – will move you forward on your path to success. An added bonus? Judi takes a moment to remind us of the wise words from a wonderful book written by Robert Fulghum – All I Really Needed to Know I Learned in Kindergarten. This book, originally published in 1988, is a gentle reminder of simple steps to remember when building your soft sills tool kit.
