People Skills in High Demand at Work

People skills are one of the most important skill sets needed in business.  Yet, only about 7% of training and development, goes into people skills development. 

Why are people skills so important?  87% of the problems in companies are people related.  This affects retention, mergers and acquisitions, bottom and top line results, not to mention discretionary effort and productivity.

What do we do about it?  Spend money on people skills by training your sales, management, leadership, service, procurement, marketing and other departments.  People are our most important asset.  Invest in them and they will invest in you.
