The term “soft skills” may sound familiar and has traditionally taken a back seat to “hard skills” training. Not anymore (although both will always be needed) power skills (formally known as soft skills) are getting the recognition they deserve.

So, what are Power Skills?

Power skills are essential, human skills that allow us to merge our ways of thinking and doing with others in various settings.

Power skills development is the NUMBER ONE training, companies and managers are looking for.

Some of the top power skills training companies are looking for are:

  • Listening
  • B2B sales
  • Negotiating
  • Communication skills (verbal & nonverbal)
  • Influencing to act (persuasion)

S&P offers training on these power skills and more!

The biggest take-away? Sales is human. So above anything else, mastering power skills helps you put the human element back into sales.

“Enabling employees to develop power skills related to communication, collaboration, and change leadership is key to building an agile business and a strong company culture.” — Melissa Daimler Chief Learning Officer, Udemy
