The Problem

While the qualities associated with leadership—such as intelligence, toughness, determination, and vision—are required for success, they are insufficient. Truly effective leaders are also distinguished by a high degree of emotional intelligence, which includes self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social (people) skills. There are direct ties between emotional intelligence and measurable business results.
— Harvard Business Review

The millennials are the smartest, best educated, most creative and tech-savvy generation to ever enter the workforce.  This is a known fact.  However, what may not be known is all that’s expected during an interview or a competitive race for a leadership opening in the workplace. And what may not be known is how to secure, maintain, and advance in a career. Success in a career depends largely on people skills, and to a much lesser degree, on their technical skills or knowledge.  People can be highly intellectual, but if they do not possess credibility and likability, they will most likely not succeed.

The internet & electronic devices have radically redefined how we’re all communicating and mediocrity is prevailing. When students leave the casual, unstructured school environment and enter the real world, they need tools in their toolkit to improve their communication skills. Employers are reporting that employees are lacking these tools, also known as, professional development skills to interact successfully online and in person.
