Mastering the Hard Science of Soft Skills (Recruitment Roundtable)

Presenter: Paul Basile, Talent selection, Self-Employed


Ask any successful CEO on what basis s/he hires and promotes people and you will hear “integrity”, “passion for the work”, “imagination”, “entrepreneurial drive” and an array of similar qualities often known – neither helpfully nor correctly – as soft skills.

In this webinar Paul Basile will examine these qualities that do, in fact, generate high performance at work and will describe the hard science that explains why. He will deconstruct the current popular approaches to hiring and promotion, exposing the fundamental errors of substance and irrelevancies of their component parts. Paul will illustrate how you can leverage proven, reliable, verified science to improve markedly the likelihood of people being placed in roles where they will be high performers. When you do this, everyone wins.
