I love the verbiage "Knock Knock... Silence." That is attention grabbing. This article is very helpful in pointing out/inspiring strategies and highlighting aspects that affect whether or not the visitors want to continue (or convert). Without at least inspiring them to read, one could ask why they are doing what they are doing. That said, the "Knock Knock" got my attention here!"
This is a great list. Thanks for sharing, David. It is one of those lists that sort of hits you after you are done reading. You read it thinking, "Yeah, this sounds good." Then, when you are done, you realize that it is dynamite and you need to implement the ideas, tips, and strategies now!"
The "technical" definition of soft skills is EQ (emotional intelligence quotient). That is a really geeky definition, so it is easier to think of it as the people skills, your ability to communicate and to relate to other people. It includes language skills, leadership skills, interpersonal skills, as well as other aspects of your personality. In the same way that everyone has intelligence, everyone has soft skills. The question at that point is how high is their EQ, or how effective they are with their soft skills."
Hi Martin. I apologize for how long you have had to wait. I just realized that there were comments here. An opportunity to learn :) Technically speaking, everyone has soft skills, but that doesn't mean that everyone has a high level of soft skills or that they effectively use their soft skills. Go ahead and pick a leader who really inspires you. The fact that that leader is able to inspire you and move you demonstrates that that person has, and is using, their soft skills. An example would be Martin Luther King, Jr. He was an effective preacher and an effective civil rights leader, in part, because of his excellent soft skills. If he had had the same believes but he was not able to articulate what his vision was, to the people of his time, then that would have been an example of not having the soft skills needed to get the message through to the people. We are fortunate, today, that Martin Luther King, Jr. is an example of someone who excelled in the area of soft skills and he was able to combine that with his vision to make a difference in the world."
