What got us here, won’t get us there. We can all learn to strengthen our soft skills or people skills, by using these easy yet time-tested methods. We’ll discuss how to become a more personable leader that people will want to follow. If our people, including sub-trades, are our biggest asset, then our people skills had better be our strength. With today’s serious skills shortage, we need to be focused on how we can be better than our competitors in attracting and retaining our most valuable asset, our people.
