About This Webinar

As technology plays an increasingly significant role in corporate environments, tech-savvy individuals are eagerly sought out by data-driven organizations. Despite their indispensable ability to leverage advanced coding, modeling, and/or related skills, technical professionals at times may be perceived as potentially benefiting from "completing their skill circle," to round out their non-technical, or "soft skill" side to increase their effectiveness in working with colleagues.

Such efforts are particularly key when technical talent seek or are tapped for significant project leadership or executive positions, especially remotely or internationally. When sensitive to and skillful at using these complementary "tools," technical professionals find themselves with smoother working relationships, team leaders experience the benefits of greater productivity and organizations more fully leverage their internal tech talent base for future company leadership roles.

Through this webinar, you will learn:

- The many benefits to your team/company in "completing the skill circle" of your critical tech talent

- How to recognize if a current team member, team or company would benefit from directly addressing the opportunity to "complete the skill circle"

- If so, how to evaluate whether, when and how to collaborate with tech talent in this effort

- Practical steps for helping your tech experts to develop the needed soft skills to build/enhance productive relationships and contribute within national or even global leadership roles
