Uncover the Power of Soft Skills
The 55 Soft Skills The Guide Employoee and Organizational Success
Dr. Tobin Porterfield and Bob Graham, co-hosts of the Serious Soft Skills Podcast, have written the first book that explores all 55 soft skills. Drawn from academic research and their business experience, this book provides employees and organizations with the first comprehensive list of the 55 soft skills that guide them toward growth and innovation.
The book, The 55 Soft Skills that Guide Employee and Organizational Success, is an outgrowth of the authors’ extensive research into soft skills, those hard-to-teach skills that are better developed through experience and mentoring. Soft skills are developed through interacting with other people and include written and oral communication, emotional/social intelligence, good listening, being able to delegate effectively, leading change and teamwork.
Learn what and how soft skills can transform any career and organization, whether you are a job seeker, a manager or a leader. Find insights and inspiration, ideas and innovative ways to develop your career and your team.
The value of soft skills within organizations is largely untapped. The reason is simple: Most people don’t understand or appreciate their power.
This book builds on a simple premise. When blended with technical skills (the knowledge, skills and expertise we largely develop in school), soft skills can catapult a person’s career and a team’s effectiveness.
People who are excelling almost always are gifted at applying their unique combination of soft skills. Teams that can leverage individual members’ unique soft skill portfolios can experience greater creativity, innovation and productivity.
This book puts a face on each of the soft skills so you can start thinking about your unique portfolio of soft skills. The transformation for you and your team can be profound — once unleashed with The 55 Soft Skills That Guide Employee and Organizational Success.
