Webinar: Six Essential Soft Skills of Indispensable Professionals

Webinar: Six Essential Soft Skills of Indispensable Professionals

Wednesday, April 19, 2017 -

7:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Take advantage of this free webinar offered to you by the University of Northern Iowa Alumni Association.

This week, Anna Tjumina will focus on personal skills.

    • Do you feel unvalued as a professional?
    • Do you feel stuck in a job that does not give you anything back in return but the (most likely unsatisfied) paycheck?
    • Do you feel overwhelmed while cruising the job market, desperately applying for everything that resembles an opportunity but keep getting endless rejections?
Chances are, you are not using your SOFT SKILLS to get you the results you want!

Together with many business and personal development gurus out there, I firmly believe that your personal and professional power lies in your mindset and your soft skills.

 
It’s often overlooked, but the importance and impact of mindsetting is universal. It's not connected to any company, country or continent. It's the very reason why valued professionals are exceptional at what they do! A skillful professional is more than a set of learnable hard skills. It’s the person behind the title that is making all the difference. A lot is expected from us nowadays; fast paced environments, tendencies towards managerial duties, complex team dynamics and level up executive thinking process. Every job is a universe of possibilities! Undeniably, our hard skillset is important to take on the excellence challenge, but it’s who you are inside that delivers on external expectations and fulfills the role to the fullest. It’s time to pay attention to the core values that determine how valuable we are on the job market and make them stronger, bigger and better - from within! Every professional has these skills by design. We just don’t use them consciously and don’t pay attention to the levels of their maturity. We expect them to grow with time, gain the experience as we go. Why leave all of that to chance?! Taking control over your soft skills is the ultimate purpose for this webinar!
 
What we will cover in this webinar:

I will share with you some crucial basic mechanics of your mind and personality habits, so you will skillfully use them to pursue your ambitions. Mindset is the multiplier of your hard skills.
 
In the second part, I will reveal the eXperience reasons why the six W.A.N.T.E.D. soft skills are important. You need to excel in all of them if you want to become an Indispensable Professional.
