Soft Skills for Challenging Times

Dominique B. Burton News

With the day-to-day, hour-to-hour, tweet-to-tweet messaging, far from clear and concise, that we are all being bombarded with regarding COVID-19, I ask that you push back from the PC and breathe.

Not a short shallow breath, but a deep and long meditative breath! Close your eyes, feel it in your chest and finish with a “Thank You.” Be grateful for all that you are and all that you have. Amid chaos, a simple measure of happiness may mean playing your favorite song or singing it out as if no one is around (thereby, encouraging a little more social distancing!) Do whatever it is that you must to stay resilient, adaptable, understanding, confident, and creative. Practice becoming a more intentional and collaborative communicator using these foundational soft skills to navigate through these challenging times.

Here are some suggested free webinars and micro-learnings available to Alameda County employees at ALCOLearn. If you need assistance with access visit the ALCOLearn Quick Start Guide.
