Let’s focus on two important soft skills: Emotional Intelligence and Communication. Boy oh boy are these two a dream combo to have! But they’re the skills that tend to get pushed to the side; ignored; overlooked; laughed at. Who would REALLY need to ‘learn’ about those skills … because when push comes to shove, you […]
As you move along through the start of your career journey, I bet you have an ‘ideal’ picture of what the next few years look like, right?
