1. Reframing soft skills to “power skills”
Soft skills (i.e., communication, interactive feedback, structures, accountability, cohesion, and emotional intelligence) don’t reside in the periphery anymore, they’ve become essential, some may even say “powerful”. These skills give you, your team(s), and your company an edge–they’re critical to performance and success.
