Despite advances in technology, the need for clear, compelling and engaging “Human-to-Human” communication skills remains as necessary and as relevant as ever. The fast pace and daily multiple task demands for the modern professional can also lead to many compromises in personal productivity, lifestyle management and subsequent health well-being.
These challenges are especially noticeable in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) professions where despite outstanding academic and technical qualifications, professional “soft skill” areas were in the past rarely observed as important competencies but are now in high-demand by employers across research and industry. Thus, there exists a skills-gap to be filled and a competitive differentiator to be realised.
Coaching of selected skills can build competency, confidence and capability to manage these challenges and extend a professional comfort zone & mindset for career and personal success in a global, multi-cultural, gender & diversity sensitive work environment.
