What you will learn:
Did you know Google cited soft skills as more important than hard skills in being successful at Google? A tech company saying soft skills are more important. Or that 77% of employers state that soft skills are more valued in employees? So there's no doubt that soft skills are critical to success.
These days there's a new soft skill touted every minute. To date, there are 15-20 soft skills that seem to matter, for example, adaptability, EQ, resilience, collaboration, creativity, empathy, grit, and so on.
That's a lot to keep track of.
What if there was one soft skill that encompassed ALL those attributes and more? All you needed to do was focus on that one skill and the rest will follow? Imagine no longer having to spend time to measure yourself (or your employees) against 15-20 different things, but only one.
What do Plato, Socrates, Aristotle, the Stoics, and many others have to say about being a well-rounded person? It comes down to this one thing.
In this groundbreaking lecture and workshop, you will learn not only what that skill is and its components but how to use it and apply it in your work practically - whether you are a leader or team member.
