The way we work and collaborate has transformed in recent years, and those changes have only been accelerated in recent months. Now more than ever, to thrive in today’s increasingly digital workplace, technical skills are not enough. Professionals must master a host of “soft skills” that boost their EQ (emotional quotient) and enable them to effectively collaborate, resolve conflicts, motivate and inspire teams, boost efficiency, fuel performance and drive results.
Join us for Career Accelerators: Teamwork, Collaboration and Productivity Skills that Fuel Results to learn about new realities in the world of business and how you can prepare yourself to stand out in the marketplace with skills that mean the difference between making things happen and wondering what happened.
