While many of us concentrate on honing the technical skills required for our jobs, we tend to overlook softer skills areas like emotional intelligence, effective problem solving and self-efficacy. Individuals who hone skills in these areas, however, tend to build stronger relationships, be more engaged employees and achieve tangible, bottom-line results in their personal and professional lives. Join host Liz West and international management consultant Bill Richardson as they explore the hard impact of soft skills and other related topics.

Episodes in this series include:

  • Self-Efficacy in the Workplace
  • Your Personal Brand
  • Thinking on Purpose: Learning How to Outsmart Evolution
  • Why Your IQ is Not Enough
  • Demystifying Political Savvy
  • Learning Agility as a Differentiator of Success
