According to the latest LinkedIn global trends report, a rising focus on soft skills is one of the biggest trends affecting the workplace. At the same time, there’s a gap between the skills employers need and those employees have. How to reconcile this? Drew Jacobs, director of learning for Ariel, advocates for a holistic approach to development through presence training — essentially, developing the ability to connect authentically with the hearts and minds of others. Presence encapsulates how you show up and the impression that you leave, and can be developed through a prescribed model.
