According to a recent article from Bloomberg Businessweek, “a modern chief executive requires an array of hard and soft skills; they’re essential for anyone aspiring to top leadership.” Hard skills such as planning, finance, and analysis that were paramount in years past are now just a fragment of the many skills executives must now possess. In today’s global economy, soft skills like good communication, creativity, collaboration, and the ability to motivate are requisite to leadership.
