In this video, we're going to talk about how WholeStory helps you uncover the candidate's soft skills—things like character strengths, leadership traits, and people skills—by learning the origins of these qualities.

We know it intuitively: life is a powerful teacher.

Whether it's getting fired, traveling the world, or climbing a mountain, LIFE is where we form and transform who we are as a person and a professional (...which are actually one in the same!).

And science is catching up to this ancient wisdom. There is substantial research that connects life experiences with soft skills development.

So when your candidates have a WholeStory profile, they share with you the _evidence_ behind their most job-critical skills.

Said another way, their life experiences are additional proof points to help you determine if they have right mix of qualities needed to succeed on the job.
