No matter what field you’re in, technical skills will only take you so far. Eventually, you’ll need to leverage interpersonal skills to stand out and effect change. Problem is, society has misrepresented what it takes to train these skills, making them seem like intangible or innate qualities that can’t be measured or managed.
In reality, there’s more research on human interaction than any exercise or programming methodology (by far) and it’s quite simple to evaluate said “soft skills”. That’s why on today’s episode we’re doing a deep dive into our proprietary social skill evaluation, how you can use it, and how it’s evolved over time.
Hint: it’s not just a matter of assessing “verbal and non-verbals”…
- How to measure something subjective and contextual like communication
- Why you need a comprehensive interpersonal evaluation and how it can help
- The major components most other social skill evaluations miss
- A breakdown of the AoC evaluation and how to use it situationally
