Soft skill-intensive occupations will account for two-thirds of all jobs by 2030. And yet the average worker is currently missing around 2 of the 18 critical skills that are advertised for. Do you have the skills necessary for success?

In a practical session led by Deloitte director Victoria Siepen, ICON members will have the opportunity to fine tune some of the most in-demand soft skills that are involved in managing people – such as communication, teamwork, problem solving and emotional judgement.

What will you learn?

  • Why soft skills will still be key in the workplace of the future
  • Key principles of communicating effectively
  • How to create a productive and effective team culture
  • How to work through difficult conversations using effective emotional judgement
