Barrier Breakers Methodology for Soft Skills Development and Evaluation – or BBM® – allows people to identify and remove the barriers blocking their potential, and to manage, develop and measure their soft skills.

Soft skills are ‘the traits and abilities of attitude and behaviour rather than knowledge or technical aptitude.”

Unlike ‘hard skills’ which have to be learnt – or input – soft skills are innate human competencies that need to be accessed, before they can be developed.

When soft skills aren’t used to their full potential it’s because barriers are getting in the way. These barriers limit access to our soft skills, and have a dramatic, negative impact on performance.

BBM provides a framework that defines the characteristics of the 5 barriers that block all soft skills – what causes them, the impact they have, and how to identify them – as well as an evaluation process to measure the subsequent development of 40 soft skills.
