Soft Skills for IT People

    The majority of Information Technology people are initially hired for their technical or analytical skills. If they progress from a pure technical position, it becomes apparent that soft skills are vitally important. Even in a technical situation, IT people have to deal with Users to determine problems and implement good solutions. They also have to work with peers, often on teams.
    In our May meeting, the Speaker will discuss the various soft skills that are needed and how IT people can learn them. Our speaker is Lauren Lucas who is a Performance Consultant for Dale Carnegie Training of Tennessee.

    Lauren will discuss how soft skills are important in many phases of IT work. She will touch on such areas as Interviewing for application problems, project presentations, selling your ideas to your boss and management, working on teams, leading teams, and other aspects of dealing with people. Lauren will discuss the various ways to learn soft skills.
