Description

Soft Skills. These are the traits, characteristics, habits and skills needed to survive and thrive in the modern work world. Soft skills aren't usually taught in school, but you will learn them all here in this course. Are you someone that other people in your organization and industry like to work with, collaborate with and partner with? Are you seen as a valuable asset to any new project that comes along?

This soft skills training course will teach you how to develop the skills that can make the difference between a lackluster career that tops out at middle management versus one that lands you in the executive suite. Or to wherever you define career success. So many soft skills seem like common sense at first glance, but they are not commonly applied by most workers. This soft skills training course will give you an edge over your competitors. It will also make your job, your career and your life more rewarding and enjoyable.

What are you waiting for? This soft skills course is designed to be completed in just one or two lunch breaks. So lesson number one is, use your free time to constantly learn new skills rather than just checking the sports scores or celebrity news at lunch. There is nothing hard when it comes to learning soft skills, as long as you have a willingness to try new things and start right now.

Your academic degrees and tech skills are not enough for long-term career success. You need to become excellent in your soft skills.

Note: The instructor has recently added 5 soft skills/communications skills books in the resource section of the first lecture for those who wish for additional study materials.

Please note: this is not a commuter generated soft skills course with lots of data slides and a robot voice. This is taught by TJ Walker, a real human being, talking and sharing with you directly (because one essential soft skill is the ability to speak directly to people and not hide behind computers and graphics).

Who this course is for:
  • This course is ideal for any professional who wants to advance in his or her career. This is for someone who wants success and is not satisfied to merely hold a current job.
