    • Summary

      Robert Brondo states, “Over the past few years, the need for business acumen skills as a…competency has become a critical focus of most CEOs.” Yet, some studies show that 90% of professionals don’t understand the key components that are important to CEOs and the overall success of the company. This webinar will explain what business acumen is and how many of NACE’s career readiness competencies are incorporated into it. It will also provide ways for trainers and coaches to teach business acumen to students/new hires in order to help them become recognized, valued, and respected members of an organization.

      Following this program, you will be able to:

      • Define business acumen and demonstrate why it is important;
      • Understand how the NACE career readiness competencies fit into business acumen; and
      • Create a plan to develop or enhance business acumen for oneself or students/new hires.
