America Succeeds Logo

In an era when technical skills are evolving at an unprecedented pace, there is an important set of durable ‘soft skills’ that last a lifetime. Durable Skills include a combination of how you use what you know – skills like critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity – as well as character skills like fortitude, growth mindset, and leadership.

For this series we sat down with Tim Taylor of America Succeeds to talk through durable skills, and how employers can use a better lexicon of terms and skills to assess talent and advertise for open positions. 


The information and resources provided by America Succeeds can be valuable tools in better aligning open positions for which employers are hiring and the inate and learned durable skills which potential employees bring to the table.
