Panelists recently discussed the importance and impact of soft skills on people, companies and communities at the fall leadership breakfast hosted by Roberts Wesleyan College.
Attendees heard from Amy Gould, chief people officer at Regional Transit Services; Adrian Hale, senior manager of workforce and economic development at Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce; and Cindi Crowley, executive coach and president at Sales360plus.
Panelists outlined transferable skills that lead to success and effective interactions with others, why they’re essential to success, and their impact on leaders, employees, companies and the community. Each speaker drew on their backgrounds in workforce development to demonstrate attainable strategies and practical ways to implement these skills and impact company culture.
The sold-out event raised $500 for student scholarships, as a portion of each ticket directly supported programs through the Roberts Fund.
