Too many are held back because they are missing a few key skills. When they learn it, their lives and work begin to thrive. When their lives get better, their organizations, businesses, and communities flourish. When that happens, the world begins to flourish as well.
Too many people are stuck in 1st gear with the parking brake on…

They are driving through life wondering why they are going so slow, why they can’t reach where they want to go, and why they see others passing them by.
They are lacking the skills they need.
Too many people miss out on promotions, raises, and even jobs because they lack these skills.
- In one study, 93% of employers said that soft skills were very important or essential when making hiring decisions.
- A LinkedIn survey found that 59% of 291 hiring managers “believe that soft skills are hard to find.

When employees lack these skills, productivity is lower, turnover is higher, and profits and business impact falls behind.
