Are you and your organization training your workforce for today’s volatile, complex and uncertain environment? CEOs identify problem‑solving, creativity and innovation, leadership, and adaptability as the skills battleground. PwC’s recent CEO survey described these four soft skills as the most important, yet difficult to find.

“Since my first exposure to CPS in 2012, it has changed almost every aspect of my life; I use it daily in my personal life and, most profoundly, I’ve used it extensively in my professional life.
