Showcasing abilities and accomplishments with others

The skills needed to present themselves, their work and their ideas, to inspire others and respond to feedback.
The ability to collaborate with others, create networks and develop and contribute to communities of practice.
The ability to demonstrate their unique talents, abilities and experiences to others in an engaging manner.
