There are two primary skills actuaries must master if they are to be effective with others: Deep Listening and Asking Effective Questions. This may seem obvious, but most of us are woefully lacking in our listening and inquiry skills. We often resort to making statements and opinions in an effort to prove our expertise. There’s a better way!
Past surveys by both the SOA and ACTEX have shown that employers and executives perceive a need for actuaries to improve both their leadership and communications skills. To fill this need, ACTEX is partnering with Dave Miller, a communications and leadership expert who is also an actuary himself, to offer a series of webinars on Leadership and Communication. Below are the dates and details for each webinar. If you can’t make the live date, you can still register and you’ll receive access to the recording when it becomes available!
