Increasing soft skills recognition with game design
Find your hidden skills.
Every day we face new situations that require us to recognize, understand, improvise and adapt.
These experiences train diverse skills that help us navigate new challenges and unexpected situations.
For example adaptive communication, critical decision making and creative problem solving.
We are often unaware of
these skills - yet many employers value
them as highly as technical skills.
Redefine your skills portfolio -
bring your hidden skills to light.

Three steps to insight...
The SkillMill reflection journey takes us through three steps:
1. IDENTIFY learning experiences where we needed to improvise, adapt or overcome new and unfamiliar situations.
2. UNDERSTAND our own behaviour in these situations, and match these with skills from leading international frameworks.
3. EXPRESS our increased familiarity with these skills by reframing relevant learning situations into training experiences.
