The Hard Work of Teaching Soft Skills, The Center for Repectful Leadership
I found myself standing in front of 20 New York City police officers in a Manhattan classroom to teach them how to successfully manage people with emotional disturbances when they become confused, angry and a potential threat. I’d just started my career as a soft skills trainer, and, as terrified as I was, I also knew that being in the room with those cops and bringing to bear my interpersonal skills and experience as a professional stage actor would help me to help them learn new behaviors.
