This truly hit home with me because as of right now I have been unable to find a day job, the finances are tight, and I am making up a new biz for freelancing! It’s scary but I know it’s right for me. I’m not a cubicle farmer lover, I dislike being told what time I can get up or arrive or leave. Let me be free!
Two new releases are coming! May 25th pick up book #3 of Ice Fairy (Coming Together) and June 1st get the 2nd installment of Upstaged (Waiting in the Wings)
Ice Fairy 3 is up for pre-order now at Amazon
Upstaged 2 is coming soon from Extasy Books. Check out the cover and blurb here: http://www.extasybooks.com/978-1-4874-2024-6-waiting-in-th…/
That’s a nice list, isn’t it? All great things!
When you think of soft skills…what comes to mind? I think that they are either a personality trait or something that is fostered and taught. Ahhhh but there’s the quandary.
Who’s responsibility is it to actually teach these things?
Parents? Teachers? Clergy? Bosses?
I can honestly say, I think a lot of it should come from the parents. Children learn by example. They mimic the world they are brought up in…no matter how good or how bad. They can follow it or reject it altogether too.
For me: high school taught me the interpersonal, the flexibility was something I was born with, but the attitude was the biggest change for me. I used to have a crappy one! But my last boss (who was awesome) taught me a LOT and he believed in me and respected me. He let me spread my wings and pitch in my ideas. So my attitude changed drastically thanks to him.
How about your own experiences? Who do you think should teach these things? The modern workforce is clamoring for folks with these abilities…they are not being taught…so who should be doing it?
