The KYSS-project focuses on the generic and the entrepreneurial soft skills. Especially young employees and entrepreneurs don’t always realise which skills employers and the business market perceive to be important. In addition, a significant part of them is not adequately able to regulate some of these generic and entrepreneurial working qualities. Soft skills have a great impact on the well-being of employees and entrepreneurs and mastering them leads to better coping with work, a longer working career and/or more successful business activities.
The partners perceive a need for an assessment-tool and effective (self)coaching methods that can already be used on the workplace, by intermediary target groups, or in higher education in the guidance of young adults, e.g. during internships and work-based learning. This to encourage youngsters and adults to further develop their generic and entrepreneurial soft skills, enhance their employability and labour integration. With these tools, the partners would be able to prepare young adults faster, better and wider on soft skills that are indispensable for proper functioning at the workplace. Another problem that needs attention in these matters is gender equality. Through the development of a self-assessment tool and a training methodology/platform, the partners will proactively pay attention to gender mainstreaming.
