The Advantage: The 7 soft skills you need to stay one step ahead


Just doing your job won’t get you to the top, but what does it take? Soft skills are your secret weapon.

These days we’re all working harder and longer, but finding it harder than ever to make an impact and get the results we want.  Traditional skills like being a good team player, a solid leader or a brilliant negotiator don’t seem to be as effective anymore. To really stand out, you need to be doing something different, something better.

You need The Advantage.

In this groundbreaking book, we set the scene for seven new skills that will propel you and your career forward. Through a combination of scientific research, no-nonsense advice, practical exercises and case studies, this book shows you how to understand, develop and use:

Adaptability – respond effectively to challenges and grab new opportunities

Resilience – learn from experience and attack the next challenge with equal boldness

Optimism – be the most positive person you know

Integrity – trust, values and honesty are the name of the game now as is authenticity

Critical thinking – challenge assumptions and find solutions

Pro-activity – thinking and acting ahead

Empathy – respect and nurture your relationships
