    Introducing Soft Skills for Leaders with Lisa Evans

    Introducing Soft Skills for Leaders with Lisa Evans

    This month marks eight years of being in business. During that time, my brand and service offerings have evolved. 
    When I began my journey into podcasting in early 2020, I kept the title and topics of conversations quite broad. 
    With 76 episodes of the Business Chat Podcast under my belt, on reflection, I have most enjoyed the conversations related to soft skills.
    The podcast has a brand new look, and here is a super short solo episode about the changes. 
    Welcome to Soft Skills for Leaders, the podcast about the less tangible yet essential skills we need to get ahead in life and at work.
    Each episode, I will bring you a conversation with an expert on a topic relating to how we create, connect, collaborate, and communicate. 
    If you have a suggestion for a topic or guest speaker, drop me a line at lisa@softskillsacademy.com.au
