The Learning Factor's curator insight, September 25, 2013 7:56 PM

Our workplaces are shifting from hierarchies to networks. Hyperlinks have subverted hierarchy. Everyone is connected. In many hierarchical organisations, workers are more connected when they go home than when they’re at work. This is a sure sign of the obsolescence of our older management control systems and why becoming a social business is so important today.

Living and working in non-hierarchical networks is our challenge this decade. The effective use of social media, to learn from and with others, is essential for individuals and organizations to be productive in networks. Social learning, simply put, is getting things done in networks.

In job search materials like a resume and cover letter, we tend to focus a lot of our attention on including the hard skills listed in the job description. We want to prove we can do the job, so we focus on the hard skills more than anything else. The problem with this logic is these skills can only get you so far. In reality, it’s the soft skills that help you move ahead in your career. In every industry and every job, the non-technical skills are what determines if you will truly fit in a company or role. Hard skills can be learned, so it’s not always necessary for you to have all of these to land a job. Soft skills like leadership, collaboration, and communication are what give you an edge.

Debra Walker's insight:

It is the soft skills that are the hardest to train & are the least demonstrated in the recruitment process.  Good listing of what employers are crying out for.
