    Annee Ngo, CEO of SoftServe on Developing "Soft Skills" in Youth to Become Better Humans and Future Leaders (Ep 33)

    Tyler Bayley (Virtual Speaker) and Susan Power, PowerUp Leadership co-sponsor the production of the Inspired Leadership Podcast. This podcast highlights how to inspire leadership capability in our workplaces for higher performance. 

    Our guest, Annee Ngo is the CEO and Co-Founder of SoftServe, a game-based platform designed to develop and track soft skills in middle school and high school students in just five minutes a day. With one prior exit in 2016, Ngo is a true leader in the local tech community, having founded and sold companies such as GH Nutrition.

    Strong, empathetic leadership is a guiding principle for Ngo, and as the CEO of a game designed to develop many of the skills that make leaders so great (empathy, curiosity, communication, etc.), Ngo is passionate about empowering other leaders to harness their soft skills in the workplace. Not only this, but SoftServe is actually making it easier for leaders to be successful. The anonymous data gathered from SoftServe's use in schools is being used to build another world's first, a Soft Skills Index, quantifying what was once unquantifiable and giving leaders unbiased soft skills data for better hiring and retention practices.
