The holder of this Badge has attended the series of seminars, developed and held by the Ca’ Foscari Competency Centre of the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, intended to accompany each participant through the self-awareness of those soft skills which represent personal strengths or weakness, as well as of those competencies required to achieve personal and professional objectives in order to improve their employability. Soft skills represent a set of individual characteristics that are required in order to achieve effective working performances. Since they are transversal, these competencies may be put into action in any professional position that calls for them and may be of an emotional, social or cognitive nature. During this series of seminars, each participant is led through four stages: - the first consists of identifying their own future goals and seeks to direct the participant towards developing a clear vision of their professional objectives (ideal self); - the second enables the participants to understand the level to which they possess their soft skills, by means of a 360 degree assessment, involving personal and professional raters (real self); - the third means becoming aware of one’s own strengths and weaknesses and therefore enables the participants to understand which of their competencies need to be developed, by implementing new behaviours that allow them to attain their ideal self; - the fourth allows the participants to understand the level of alignment between their personal and professional objectives and the soft skills they possess, on the one hand, and the expectations of the labour market, on the other hand. Each seminar is structured on interactive classes (or through a webinar) and activities to be carried out between one class and the next. The pathway is distinguished by experiential learning, including, for example, self-reflection activity, group discussions, analysis and discussion of film clips or case studies and simulations.
