Presentation Patterns to Improve Soft Skills

Communication techniques and social engineering hacks for software engineers

The Career Design Patterns soft skills framework consists of four collections.

Your Individual UX

User experience is more than just the UI on a piece of software. It is the entire journey a user takes while interacting with a company’s products and services. Similarly, a person’s individual user experience is not just how they dress or whether they prefer written versus oral communication. An individual’s UX is an outsider’s perspective; it is the experience others have when interacting with the individual.

We help software engineers refine their individual user experience for building trust, brand loyalty and higher engagement with peers, employers and customers.

Extend your individual user experience by leveraging the right Presentation patterns at the right time.

Some programmers are more comfortable working with computers than they are with people. They believe that they aren’t good communicators and that being an introvert is an excuse for not having good soft skills. But soft skills aren’t an innate talent, they are learned skills and honed with practice. Introverts and extroverts alike benefit from practicing the Presentation patterns.
