Soft Skills is one of those names that someone soon will create a better description of because its name perhaps does not do justice to its importance. ‘Human Skills’, ‘Power Skills’ but for now Soft Skills is going to be a topic of much conversation.
I had a really interesting conversation with Loralyn Mears, PhD of the really exciting Steerus Soft Skills Academy which is based in New Jersey, my place of birth. Joining us on the Zoom call was Simon Haigh ‘The Growth Strategist’ based much nearer home, in Dublin
We had a very open chat around Soft Skills and their increasing importance in the digital disruption and experience economy where the revolution of the digital meets the increasing need for human skills.
Loralyn has a very open, transparent style and she is very insightful on the subject of Soft Skills. Steerus , in its early stage of development, promises to be a platform of note. Simon spoke about ‘Soft Power’ and its emergence as well as his work in that area. I spoke about Ireland and its ability to lead a European agenda in this crucial area of skills and training.
We ran out of time and promised to meet again really really soon. I look forward to continuing this very interesting conversation.
