Knowledge is acquired through experience, everything else is just information.Albert Einstein
According to several studies, our professional success depends on: > 80% of our ability to have personal impact as well as our way of interacting with others – skills that correspond to what we commonly call “soft skills”, > 20% of technical knowledge (hard skills).
I run Soft Skills workshops for companies as well as for business and engineering and business schools.
At the center of my teaching are “soft skills”, cultural differences to be exploited as an asset in a multicultural team. I am not conveying the concept of a learned society, but the awareness to be at the center of a human adventure. All the themes of the workshops will be tested through scenarios.
