Why Soft Skills part II

Why Soft Skills part II

This is a reposting of a vlog post I produced in the fall of 2019, and is part two of last week’s post.

The IBM Institute for Business Value recently surveyed approximately 5,670 executives across 48 countries to learn more about the skills needed to execute business strategies. The top finding of the research is that approximately 120 million workers may need to be retrained or reskilled as a result of AI and intelligent automation. Yet, the research also revealed that, while technical and digital skills were still in high demand, executives are placing highest priority on behavioral—or soft skills (Josh Bersin).
