The core Skills

We believe there are ten core or 'soft' skills

Core skills, which are also sometimes known as soft skills, help you succeed at work and in life. We all have them to some degree, but working on developing your strengths in each skillset can transform how you perform. Learn about each Core Skill, and take the Skills Report to see where your strengths lie.

People with strong entrepreneurial skills are innovative, motivated, and able to work independently.

Collaboration and Teamwork

Good collaborators are able to work with others in a positive and cooperative manner to achieve a result.


Strong communicators can empathise with others, read body language, and adjust communication styles as needed for each situation.


Initiative can keep you on task and on track, and a higher level of initiative can have a big impact on what you achieve.
