David Kolb on the Soft Skills That Spell Infosec Success

February 10, 2017 | Certifications and Training
By Chris Gonsalves, IANS Director of Technology Research

This week I'm joined by IANS faculty member and Incite Learning founder Dr. David C. Kolb to talk about his popular series of organizational engagement and leadership skills courses now in their second year at the IANS Information Security Forums. David shares his thoughts on new sessions for 2017 targeting negotiation skills and the ability to thrive in the chaos that defines most infosec environments.

We also get in some Super Bowl LI talk and discuss how David's years as an outdoorsman and Outward Bound program leader have informed his work helping corporate executives hone their soft skills.
