Hard Skills and Tech Certs lapse.
Soft Skills are timeless.

our FOCUS: Learn How to Translate Tech Talk

The pace of innovation has left many IT professionals exposed to a changing landscape. As technology life cycles continue to shorten, the value of many technical skills has become short-lived.

“Soft Skills” endure these changes. And, they are essential tools for technology teams to navigate the rapidly shifting business environment, nimbly and effectively. The reason behind this is that the human element is still core to technology advancement.

Collaboration, communication, and coordination skills are increasing in importance. Businesses are demanding employees who can translate technical terms into meaningful business outcomes.

In fact, 77% of employers value Soft Skills as much as Hard Skills.

In our program you’ll learn how to:

Identify the structure of conversations and seize opportunities for improvement

Reveal the true business objectives of non-tech employees and executives

Create clear and meaningful narratives
