Uncover the key to success!
Take this course and learn how soft skills can set you apart in any future role. Unlock your potential with step-by-step guidance as you embark on an invaluable learning journey!
It’s undeniable that the workforce is more and more focused on soft (or power) skills. However, identifying the skill gaps for individuals is not that easy. In addition, do you really need all those soft skills listed in every post? Finally, your personality also plays a huge role in your learning journey.
Skills are simply the ability to do something that can be taught and learned. To simplify, we use “skills” to describe what a person can do. It could be something like “negotiation”; when you combine your negotiation skills with communication, persuasion, etc., you become a negotiator or a leader. Remember that leadership requires more than a couple of technical (hard) and soft (power) skills to make you a competent leader.
So, how do we get around this and choose skills that can be used as a foundation? Soft skills will help us improve our behaviour and open the doors for us to learn continuously. If you are wondering, then this course is for you!

An experienced executive coach with over 25 years of project delivery experience. I guide executives, portfolio, program and project leaders and teams to build their project capability and lead sustainable project transformations.
I am a business transformation expert who has worked with some of the world's leading brands to improve their performance. I've helped organizations across industries such as GM, Burger King and TD Bank succeed in our changing market conditions by ensuring everyone from boardroom CEO’s middle management down is on board-or at least aware of what needs doing.
I have a unique blend of skills that I bring to the table. Evaluating individuals and organizations for their effectiveness, understanding many different modes of coaching and how each individual operates differently in terms of style and philosophy sets me apart from other coaches, even though my title might not suggest so at first glance!
I excel at making sure everyone learns quickly while executing their tasks/roles throughout the organization. Because you can't just tell people what to do and expect them to do it. You have to work with them, listen to them, and understand them. And sometimes, even when you do all of that, things don't go the way you want them to. But that's okay; my patience-tested knowledge about how best to work with people when managing projects taught me when to take a step back and let others take the lead. That’s why I am always providing my clients with a unique perspective and view, leveraging the best practices from global leading organizations at the forefront of figuring out how to succeed in any situation.
Business adoptions and transformations are often complex. However, going through the adoption process is significantly more complicated than it seems at first glance. There’s a set order to these steps that need completion in just the right fashion if you want your business transformation or digital change efforts to succeed! For over two decades now, I've been working with clients who have needed help adapting their way of thinking as well as doing work on different occasions. My experience has given me an excellent understanding of how crucial this specific sequence can become when trying out something new within any industry, not only those involving technology (businesses).
I work as a consultant, coach, facilitator, and trainer. Authored and taught Project Management, Agile & DevOps, Problem-solving, and Power-skills related subjects through public and private courses, coaching business and technology professionals on Project Management, Agile, DevOps, and Digital Transformation.
A frequent speaker at various project management conferences and events, such as PMI Global Conferences.
