5 Habits of a Thriving Organization

Your staff know how to do their job but seem to lack the kind of emotional intelligence required to take the organization to the next level.

Did you know that 44% of executives feel that having weak soft skills is the most pressing issue when it comes to gaps in communication and other workforce proficiencies?

What are soft skills? Soft skills, also known as “people skills” refer to those interpersonal skills like interpreting body language, silence, and other people’s positive and negative energy that make doing business personal. The ability to listen, communicate effectively, and engage in interactions that utilize emotional intelligence are all under the “soft skills” umbrella.

As we depend more and more on technology, emotional intelligence has gone by the wayside and the idea that soft skills are hard to teach is a myth. However, for them to be effective, they must be developed, just like technical skills.

Leslie says, “Technical skills is how you get the job, but soft skills is how you keep the job.” Leslie specializes in organizations that prioritize technical skills and productivity over unified forms of communication and other soft skills. Her engaging and personable style will leave your team more emotionally intelligent with capabilities that will advance the rest of their careers and lives.
