“Soft” skills are personal character traits or qualities that each of us possesses. Generally speaking, they include our attitudes, habits and the ways we interact with other people. They are much less tangible than “hard” or technical skills, and unlike them, they are not learned through formal training programs. You have to acquire, nurture and improve soft skills, but above all be ready to put effort into their development. Soft skills are crucial in everyone’s professional development, and they can determine the extent of your professional development.
SGA has been preparing a program dedicated to soft skills for a long time, and is now implementing it through the Creative Tech Serbia program and in partnership with the companies TIM Centar and Rezilient from Novi Sad. In the days before this open meetup, the Soft Skills Academy program will be held, intended for employees and leaders in creative-tech companies that are members of the CTS supercluster.
The SGA Soft Skills Meetup is waiting for you in Bitef Tetar (Mira Trailović Square 1) on Thursday, December 8, from 6 to 8 PM, as an event that is open to all interested audiences, with registration.
Zoja Kukić will talk about inclusion and diversity in the workplace, and we will have a unique opportunity to participate in an interactive lecture by theater director Paul Bourne, who comes from Cambridge Judge Business School in Great Britain, and often uses theater techniques in his skills-focused workshops communications, creative thinking and entrepreneurship. In addition to all that, Milica Novkov (representing the Novi Sad-based TIM Centar), will look at the importance of soft skills in a collaborative work environment, such as the one in gaming.
TIM Centar is a consulting company for human resources, which has 15 permanent consultants, specialized in certain HR areas. TIM Center started providing psychological support to employees in 2011. Since then, they have been further developing our program every year, while Rezilient is the result of their many years of experience in supporting companies and employees to be more resistant to stress and more satisfied with their work and life.
This activity is launched by the Creative Tech Serbia supercluster, with the support of USAID Serbia and ICT Hub Belgrade (through the Serbia Innovates project). You can read more about the Creative Tech Serbia supercluster here.
