More on the skills colleges and employers want

At a conference on innovative teaching and learning, I attended a memorable panel conversation about the skills that students should develop by the time they start college or enter a career. The panel was made up of men and women who headed large and small businesses, and the skills they wanted incoming employees to have were:

  • Communication for internal and external clients
  • Empathy
  • Collaboration
  • Problem solving
  • Initiative
  • Strong work ethic
