I spent some time today chatting with Brigitte Dillman-Cruce, Professional Development Manager at NBBJ. She runs the company’s in-house leadership training program, which has been shaping the firm’s leadership for nearly a decade.
The ever-evolving program is built to address the unique needs of creatives and NBBJ’s company culture. In very hands-on ways, it has elevated current and future leadership’s knowledge of change management, communication, interpersonal relations, coaching, and team dynamics (just to name a few). Seriously impressive, Brigitte. Nice work!
It’s easy to see the value in developing your technical skills, but I believe these ‘soft’ skills are just as vital (especially in the eyes of the people you manage).
