The Importance of Soft Skills

Technical skills teach students how to perform a job. Soft skills teach them how to have a career. As technology advances and workplaces evolve, it’s becoming more critical than ever for administrators to set their students up for long-term success.

Don't just give your students tools, give them lifelong skills

We sat down with Dr. Tim Holt, FRAeS, C.M. from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s College of Aviation to understand why technically gifted students struggle with soft skills and what techniques educators can use to increase their students’ communication, conflict resolution, and interpersonal skills.

In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • Why soft skills are vital now more than ever
  • How to effectively communicate with your students
  • How remote learning has impacted the soft-skills gap
  • Why leadership is at the forefront of soft-skill development

Leadership development is a sure-fire way to increase a vast number of soft skills. Learn how the NSLS provides transformative leadership programming to over 700 campuses across the US and how easy it is to bring a chapter to your school.
