A wonderful editor and reporter from the American Management Association is Shari Lifland,who I have known for years and recently reconnected with when she was writing an interesting article on Social Networking. Click below to read it and then read on to learn more about "Professor Shari".
Shari has a new website and business up and running where her mission is "Communication Skills for the Real World". Her goal and mission is to work with students, colleges and businesses to ‘get real’ by honing the skills all employers-regardless of industry or profession-value most highly –Basic communication skills.
As she says:
Two-thirds (63%) of employers say college graduates lack essential skills to succeed in today’s global economy. Specifically, they find that recent graduates lack valuable non-technical "soft skills:" they don’t know how to act in face-to-face situations, their writing skills aren’t where they should be, and they lack basic business etiquette skills.
Since I also teach many of these same skills in the business world, I could not agree with her more.
