Why Interpersonal Communication Skills Matter More in Business than Intelligence

Why Interpersonal Communication Skills Matter More in Business than Intelligence | Vocational education and training | Scoop.it
Interpersonal communication skills are certainly important to modern business, but are they as important as the ‘hard’ skills that pad the résumés of so many prospective new hires? The truth is that soft skills are actually far more important than anything else a new employee can bring to the table, and we are going to tell you why.

Dare to disagree | Vocational education and training | Scoop.it
Most people instinctively avoid conflict, but as Margaret Heffernan shows us, good disagreement is central to progress. She illustrates (sometimes counterintuitively) how the best partners aren’t echo chambers -- and how great research teams, relationships and businesses allow people to deeply disagree.

Skills Matter - Further Results from the Survey of Adult Skills - en - OECD

Skills Matter - Further Results from the Survey of Adult Skills - en - OECD | Vocational education and training | Scoop.it

In the wake of the technological revolution that began in the last decades of the 20th century, labour market demand for information-processing and other high-level cognitive and interpersonal skills is growing substantially. The Survey of Adult Skills, a product of the OECD Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC), was designed to provide insights into the availability of some of these key skills in society and how they are used at work and at home. The first survey of its kind, it directly measures proficiency in several information-processing skills – namely literacy, numeracy and problem solving in technology-rich environments.



This volume reports results from the 24 countries and regions that participated in the first round of the survey in 2011-12 (first published in OECD Skills Outlook 2013: First Results from the Survey of Adult Skills) and from the nine additional countries that participated in the second round in 2014-15 (Chile, Greece, Indonesia [Jakarta], Israel, Lithuania, New Zealand, Singapore, Slovenia and Turkey). It describes adults’ proficiency in the three information-processing skills assessed, and examines how skills proficiency is related to labour market and social outcomes. Another related report, The Survey of Adult Skills: Reader’s Companion, Second Edition, describes the design and methodology of the survey and its relationship to other international assessments of young students and adults.
