The "Soft Skills" of Success
Thank you for inviting me to be with you today and for that generous introduction. I call this speech the "soft skills" of success. It's based on my experiences in different management positions primarily within human resources. I watched as individuals were promoted. Some succeeded, others failed. Those succeeding had both excellent technical skills and "soft-skills" especially the ability to work positively with everyone. Technical Skills are a part of many excellent educational curriculums. The "soft skills" need additional emphasis in school curriculums. A student who learns early of their importance will have a "leg up" as they begin a business
career and life.
I've been promoted, demoted, and promoted again. This experience helped me. I become aware of what is really important and the real truths in succeeding in the business world.
