Tracey has always gravitated toward personal and professional development. Throughout her career as an Employment Facilitator, she continues to be intrigued with “Soft Skills” and how they impact our professions.
Most people aren’t familiar with the term; however, everyone knows what they are when explained. Simply put, soft skills are the attributes that enable us to interact well with others.
For example, a nurse trains in both hard skills and soft skills. The “hard” skills are specific to their profession: reading temperatures, administering medication, etc. “soft” skills are the qualities that determine how well they interact with patients, colleagues, family members and or how productive they are on shift.
Why work-related training? Learning what makes people tick and why we do the things we do, ESPECIALLY in the workplace, has always fascinated Tracey.
I enjoy the challenge and creativity of supporting clients to make sense of work-related matters. Whether it is helping a client create a resume, facilitating a workshop, or creating and designing vocational curriculum. I enjoy it all.”
Tracey brings a diverse background to her services: helping clients individually or in groups, working with employers, and facilitating a variety of government-funded employment projects with various not-for-profit organizations.
Whatever the workshop topic, Tracey’s goal is to simply bring insight to the “soft skill” at hand and to have you think about how you approach the subject matter within your profession.
