Developing Soft Skills in Times of Change

Wherever you look—the World Economic Forum’s ‘Future of Jobs’ Report, Royal Bank of Canada, McKinsey, etc.—it is becoming increasingly clear that to succeed in the workplace of the future, soft skills must be developed. Especially for leaders. As leaders, we need to be better active listeners, problem solvers, critical thinkers, dynamic speakers, managers of time, and learners. We need this for employees, as well.

The problem, though, is that we don’t even have a way to assess soft skills, let alone how to improve them. How can we measure what we can’t set a baseline for and don’t know how to measure?

In this presentation, Eric Termuende will walk attendees through the current and future working environment to build a better sense of trust, belonging, and better communication.

You’ll learn:

  • 3 best practices to boost soft skill development amongst team members
  • How to proactively create a sense of belonging in the workplace
  • Unlock the secret to better feedback practices
  • How to mitigate poor short turnover and high tenure

Today’s presentation was great and I’m delighted at the response from the Team. The videos, the customization, and of course, your presence, knowledge, and energy made it a huge success! I’ve contracted and supported many Executive Leadership Summits for the agency over the years and it is not often that they say…”This is the best Summit we’ve ever had!” There’s been a lot of that type of feedback today and it is much deserved and well-earned praise.

In October 2020, in the middle of this Pandemic crisis, we had the pleasure to work with Eric for one of our episodes of our Dell Technologies Thought Leader Series. In addition to being a very fun person to work with, Eric was very generous of his time and an amazing presenter that our customers love!!!! His story was very inspiring and helped people with a different perspective during these difficult times.
