Power Tools: Constructing Key Competencies with Power Skills
with featured speaker, Dr. Eric D. Waters
Wednesday, June 23 | 2:00 PM- 3:30 PM
Historically, our increasing dependence on e-commerce, Web 2.0, and now AI has highlighted the necessity of hard or technical skills. However, contemporary research continues to find a sustained high demand for soft or power skills as they positively correlate with job fulfillment and wellbeing. This session offers participants four competencies composed of power skills useful for achieving personal and organizational goals.
- Apply communication aspects of servant leadership to engage in healthy coaching conversations
- Perform personal needs assessments to enhance self-awareness of strengths and opportunities for growth
- Reimagine “soft” skills as power skills that augment resourcefulness as a core competency
- Recognize and exert influence regardless of organizational level
