Why soft skills matter

At FourMonkeys we are huge advocate of STEAM (STEM + Arts) education. We spent years coaching robotics clubs and teaching students how to use each discipline to solve a problem. Beyond those skills, there exists another set that are sometimes overlooked while teaching. Soft Skills.

1. Being a good coach

2. Listening and communicating well.

3. Insights and understanding others

4. Empathy and support

5. Critical Thinking

6. Connecting the dots

Over the next few blog posts, we will discuss what each one of these means to us and how we use them in our games.
