Bridging the Generational Leadership Gap

Latest statistics show that the world has the largest youth population ever.
The sad thing is that the youth have been victims of so many challenges including unemployment, crime, and the lack of opportunities.
If the young people are empowered to become leaders and given a chance to take the lead, they could overcome the other challenges they are facing.
If the youth are enabled to take charge, they are more than able to shape their own destinies. Not only that, if the baton is transferred to young people, they could have contributed their fair share in tackling the major ills the world as a whole is confronted.
That is why we at PRO Leadership are committed to bridging the generational leadership gap.
What would be your role to bridge this gap?

Interview With Charles Britt on Soft Skills

The founder of PRO Leadership was interviewed by a local media

Great leaders have personal mastery. They first conquered self before attempting to conquer the outside world and others. They know who they are, their strengths, weaknesses, blind spots, and clear about their values. They regulate their emotions, manage their time, energy, resolve the problems they face, and also make ethical decisions they face on a consistent basis…

Not only that, extraordinary leaders get along with diverse people successfully. They know their place in their community, team, and organization. They play their unique roles. They communicate effectively, turn conflicts into opportunities, and have high cultural intelligence.

Outstanding leaders lead others successfully because they first developed personal mastery, they first led themselves successfully. They’ve got along with people from diverse backgrounds, priorities, cultures, religions, political ideologies, and so on. They are good in inspiring their people to aim high. They develop their team by giving them individual attention, by mentoring and coaching. They are skillful negotiators for win-win deals. They also know how to lead change smoothly.

If you would like to join these elite group of unique leaders, you need to develop personal mastery, get along with and lead others successfully. And, the new book of Dr. Assegid Habtewold, founder of PRO Leadership, provides you the 12 top soft skills that are vital to take your life, career, and business to the next level.

Go to, New Book page, and download the first part of the book for free by subscribing at the middle of the page. If you like what you read in the first 40 pages of the book, well, you can go to Amazon to purchase the book only 9.99 USD.

If you have young kids, siblings, relatives, colleagues, and friends, this is a gift worth giving. You’re investing in this future. Plant this seed in their life, it will give them latest insights and tools to develop their soft skills that make or break their future.

If you have a business, team, and leader of your organization, well, why don’t you invite the author to come and facilitate workshops for your team based on all or some of the soft skills.

Interview with Eric Rasch on Soft Skills

The Pope of Soft Skills

On August 4th, 2017, just before facilitating a workshop based on the new book at Veterans Plaza, Silver Spring MD

If you’re wondering why the founder of PRO Leadership is called the Pope of Soft Skills, check this brief video clip from yesterday’s presentation at Veterans Plaza

His next presentation is going to be on August 11th, 2017 in Alexandria VA. The event is organized by A Consortium of Northern Virginia Workforce Development Organizations.

Theme: Workforce Conference: Rebuilding Your Professional Career in the US’.

This is especially important if you’re an immigrant who would like to take your career to the next level. This kind of opportunity comes once in awhile. Use the opportunity to jumpstart your new career you’ve been dreaming to launch for a very long period of time. If you intend to revitalize, relaunch, rebuild, and/or make a career change, this conference equips you with the necessary info, tips, and guidances.

If you’re a leader and know some people who may benefit from this conference in your respective community, please inform them to attend this vital event.

Don’t quote me 🙂 I heard that some companies have already ordered my book to give to participants. I’m not yet sure how many copies. If I were you, I’d go there early and get a copy. This is a fantastic book so use the opportunity, of course, to hear many great speakers, and it doesn’t hurt to get a great book for free.

Presentation based on my new book on Aug 4th- @6 pm- Silver Spring MD

If you’re in the DC metro area and available, this is great news. I’m going to facilitate an interactive workshop based on my new book entitled ‘Soft Skills That Make or Break Your Success: 12 soft skills to master self, get along with, and lead others successfully’. In this one hour fast paced but engaging presentation, I’ll empower my audience to take their life, career, and business to the next level by sharing with them key insights, processes, and tools they can immediately use in the work and marketplaces.

Please note that as leaders, we need to work on our soft skills on a consistent basis. We need those soft skills vital to achieving personal mastery. Leaders who succeeded to lead (master) self, lead others better than those who lack personal mastery. Leaders who developed self-leadership can lead others successfully.

Though personal mastery is a foundation, it’s just the first step of a protracted journey. As leaders, not only we are expected to get along with our team members, but also we are obliged to get along and work with our peers, internal and external customers, and other diverse stakeholders successfully.

Besides, we need to equip ourselves with the soft skills that enable us to lead our team by motivating them to aim high, empowering them through coaching and mentoring, engaging them in constant win-win negotiations, and transforming the team to handle changes.

In short, if your desire is to take your leadership ability to the next level, you cannot afford to neglect your soft skills. And, this presentation provides you a high-level overview of the 12 soft skills that make or break your leadership.

The event is organized by 21st C Community. It’s going to be at the Civic Building, Veterans Plaza, Downtown Silver Spring (One Veterans Place, Silver Spring, MD 20910) @ 6 pm.

By the way, two of my books are door prizes. The first two persons who will come first will be rewarded. Be one of them!
