Soft Skills Deep Dive

First an error report: In one quiz you have the question: "Being open to accepting feedback is helpful because:" and one of the answers is: "It shows other team members you are willing to hear ideas and ultimately ignored" I find the formulation weird at least.

Second, Dan Gorgone will this deep dive be continued? I currently find it incomplete as it presents everything at a very general level without going into many examples. Maybe some specific advice on how to deal with stress can prove useful as well as some suggestions of online tools/ further resources.

Thanks for the feedback, everyone. Livia-Alexandra Sarban, in response to your question, the future of this particular Deep Dive will be determined at a later time. My plan was to put this out there for everyone to check out and evaluate and get their response and reaction (as has been happening here). It is a different kind of content, but it relates very much to the Careers Foundations content we put out this past summer, as well as the more recent How to Freelance course that Pasan Premaratne just published.

I really think you should continue it: The deep dive has a lot of potential, it just needs more material. Your courses tend to be quite inspirational and I will definitely keep in mind that getting the job isn't the same as being great at it.

It's like a mantra. That's good to have some reminder to evaluate yourself. Even if you already know the best answer because it's logical, you can ask you "Am I doing it good ?". I find this kind of deep dive useful too.

I loved the "Soft Skills Deep Dive" from Dan Gorgone - he's a great motivator and I'd be happy to see more :-)

Personally i'm disappointed from this new "dip dive". Very general in my opinion.
