This book is targeted to office professionals whether they are new, mid-career or late-career employees. What most new employees lack today are soft skills. Soft skills are not like hard skills, such as typing, writing, or how to use software programs which are more commonly taught. Often overlooked, soft skills such as fostering good interoffice relationships, implementing good communication strategies, practicing effective email communication, being aware of your nonverbal communication, developing a thorough work plan, and perfecting your time management skills are just as vital for career success. Mid-career and late-career employees, although successful in their careers, may have never learned more advanced soft skills such as developing meaningful relationships at work, maintaining a work life balance, being a leader in the workplace, and leaving a legacy.
Readers of this book will gain a new understanding of not only the importance of soft skills in the workplace, but they will learn about effective strategies and practical examples that they can implement in their own workplace, to empower them to be successful in their job and develop deeper, more meaningful relationships with their colleagues.
