Having in-demand hard skills on your resume is great (especially if one of those skills is blockchain, which is kind of a big deal), but the real ticket to success is being on top of your soft skills. With so many people doing the WFH thing, and possibly continuing that practice permanently, you can’t underestimate the importance of these skills for fueling your personal development and professional growth. Over 40% of execs have noted a lack of soft skills as a big issue in their workforce, so mastering them—with the help of Big Think Edge—is the best way to stand out from team members or other job candidates. 

Once referred to as “TED talks on steroids,” Big Think Edge brings you an unparalleled library of video lessons on things like emotional intelligence, career development, communication, creativity, critical thinking, digital fluency, health and wellness, leadership, lifelong learning, problem-solving, management, and self-motivation. The skills you learn will help you do things like answer infuriating emails, pitch ideas to the CEO, keep meetings from going off the rails, tell that chatty dude from operations you are too busy for his chattiness, and generally “manage diverse personalities” aka keep the peace among even the most unpleasant of unpleasant coworkers.

Oh, and did we mention that the folks teaching you these skills are the real deal? Lectures are created by educators and taught by world-class Ivy-league professors, entrepreneurs, Nobel Prize winners, and experts. These are people you’ve actually heard of, too! We’re talking Malcolm Gladwell, Andrew Yang, Elon Musk, Sara Blakely, Bryan Cranston, Chris Hadfield, Edward Norton, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Richard Branson, Barbara Corcoran, Arianna Huffington, Michio Kaku, Shane Battier, Nick Offerman, Bill Nye, John Cleese, and more. 

In addition to the 1,000+ videos already on the platform, Big Think Edge releases 3 new exclusive actionable life and career lessons each week. Whether you want to give your career a boost or develop your approach to the business world, these big thinkers have you covered.

Access content from your web or mobile device and get learner support guides, bonus education newsletters, Deep Dive experiences, and note-taking space. For all of that plus exclusive access to live stream Q&As with world-renowned authorities, you’ll need a subscription to the online lecture series trusted by future-thinking companies like Pfizer, Citi, Disney, and UBS.  

Big Think Edge is available in varying subscription lengths to meet your budget needs, but you’ll get the best value from a lifetime subscription, thanks to regular content updates that match the trends of the time. Why not set yourself up for success now and in the future, too?

The Big Think Edge Expert-Taught Lectures: Lifetime Subscription is on sale for $159.99. Other options include a 1-year subscription for $29.99, 2 years for $49.99, and 3 years for $69.99.
