When we talk about educating our way out of the skills gap, the discussion tends to focus on how we funnel more students into science or technology majors or helping current workers gain in-demand skills. But companies aren’t just looking for employees with specific content knowledge and skills. They want folks with “soft skills”—emotional intelligence and social graces—too. So if we need to educate and train the next generation to be ready for the 21st century workforce, should colleges be emphasizing and giving grades on those too?
Interesante pregunta… más si cabe que nuestro sistema educativo vuelve a olvidarse de las “múltiples inteligencias” y especialmente de la inteligencia emocional.
