4 Low-Cost Ways to Develop Your Team’s Soft Skills

-Set the stage
As the team leader, it’s your job to ensure team members have ample opportunity to practice job-related and human skill sets.

-Put soft skills front and center
Celebrate “wins” that highlight people skills. At meetings and team huddles, give equal praise for how something was done as well as what was achieved.

-See the opportunity in challenge
Setbacks provide excellent opportunities to flex soft-skill muscles. Whether it’s a project that crashed and burned or a brewing team conflict

-Get clear about what good people skills look like
It’s fine to keep it low-key and casually do the fist bump and “Nice job!” thing with team members.
