"Soft skills" is a broad term frequently used to describe “people skills." But "soft skills" might be better described as the skills needed for high-performing employees and organizations to communicate, solve problems, innovate, lead, and connect with customers and prospective customers. The problem many organizations face isn’t whether to offer development opportunities in soft skills; it’s deciding which soft skills ought to be most prominent in development efforts.

In this program, you’ll learn about the top 5 soft skills that are most predictive of employee, leadership and organizational success in today’s highly complex and rapidly changing environment. You’ll also gain quick tips to help jump-start your development efforts for each soft skill.
