         submit to reddit

When a company decides to hire someone, it will need to find the person who embodies the perfect blend of three fundamental features: education, experience and soft skills. The first two can be found on the CV o on LinkedIn, but what about the soft skills? What are soft skills? Soft skills are personal attributes which enable someone to interact effectively and harmoniously with other people (Wikipedia). It is essential nowdays, for anyone seeking to fullfill their career and meet the available job opportunities to work and develop their soft skills.

Starting next April 26th students of business administration will be offered the opportunity to follow 3 enlighting seminars about Soft Skills:

First Prof. Kerstin Kathy Meyer-Ross of Dresden University will present a 3-day seminar named "Creativity", then consultant Nicola De Benedictis will introduce his 2-day seminar called "Behavioral Job Interviewing Strategies", and finally on May 20th Paolo Casamassima and Marco Sartarelli will meet Tor Vergata students for their lesson "Ill Get That Job!".

Only 20 participants will be allowed to attend this cycle of seminar because many of the activities we scheduled are to be made in a small group; priority in this sense will be given to 2nd year students.

Creativity - Kerstin Kathy Meyer-Ross (Dresden University)

Everyone wants to be creative. Without creativity there is only repetition and routine. Creativity is needed for change, improvement and new directions. Too many people believe that creativity is a talent with which some people are born and the rest can only envy.
However, everybody is creative. Creativity is a skill that can be learned, developed and applied.
Creativity is a skill that everyone can practice and use.
The 5-days workshop is designed into units.

Day one to three tackles with Popular Techniques, like SMART, Network Diagrams, Brainstorming, Mind Maps, Gallery Method, 635 Method and the Zwicky Box. Students will design a creative (Scientific) Poster at the end of the day. If time, Random Words will already be introduced for finding a smart title.

On day four and five the Random Word (–Technique) will be proceeded (or introduced) and practiced. The whole unit is an exercise on Random Words.
Students will get used to the technique and exercise on going beyond the obvious, problem-solving, constructive and perceptual creativity, associations, and possibilities.
The Six Thinking Hats will be established and the students will try out and practice the Six Thinking Hats in one or two role-plays. Students will love the practical and positive approach to making decisions.
