'Soft skills' include networking, communication and management skills.
If you want to start your own coding business, there much more to it than the technical aspects of the job. We want to teach coders how to stand out in the tech industry and successfully start their own business.
Even if you don’t want to make your own company, this course will teach you skills that will make you invaluable wherever you work.
Marketing yourself as a coder is a strategic career plan. Learning to code is becoming as important as learning to read. The world economy has a growing software industry. You don’t need to buy expensive machinery or an office building to create the next blockbuster app or software tool.
Learning to code is not enough to start your own coding business. There is much more to it than the technical aspects of the job.
Many coders lack the essential soft skills, necessary to elevate themselves from being just another talented coder, to becoming a hugely successful coding entrepreneur - We've made this course to help the Steve Wozniaks of the world, be a little more like Steve Jobs.
Why soft skills for techies?
True, a large part of what you do as a coder is technical. But to be successful, you need to do just as much interacting with clients, other coders, stakeholders and of course, your ever growing team, as you thrive in the role of being the owner of your own coding business.
With the right soft skills, you can easily master the many challenges of starting and running a successful and highly profitable business.
1. We have a unique approach.
We based this course on proven psychological methods and on our experience in the coding industry. We’ve narrowed down the specific skills you need to get ahead, and stay ahead, as a successful coding entrepreneur.
Other soft skills courses don’t cater to the unique challenges of coding. We do.
At the end of each section, you will know how to apply soft skills to benefit yourself, your employees, and your clients, and ultimately ensuring that your business turns a huge profit.
We’re committed to updating the course in response to input from you. We want to create dynamic solutions and share knowledge with the whole student community.
2. We've got fascinating topics.
We’ve developed a curriculum of the best skills to complement you as a coder and your business. The course is comprehensive with over 145 lectures, covering the key areas designed to strengthen and develop the core of your coding business. Here's just some of the topics you can look forward to learning:
And unlike other psychology rich courses, we won't weigh you down with unnecessary theory that isn’t practical or relevant to you as a coder or an entrepreneur. All of the psychological principles and techniques used within the course have been carefully selected and meticulously applied to tailor fit the specific issues faced by coders and techies on a daily basis, as they navigate their business to the next level of success.
3. We will support you.
We are committed to listening to student feedback and using that information to update the course and make it as enriching and valuable as possible. If you take this course, you won't have a “fire and forget” experience. You will become part of an exclusive community of students, all personally supported, 365 days a year (yes, even on Christmas day!)
Our student support really is a quite exceptional, with students being answered personally by the course instructors, within 3 hours (depending on your time zone). There's good reason why we have so many 5 star reviews!
We'll also make sure that you stay at the top of your game by regularly updating the course material, to reflect the current trends from the tech industry and the latest developments and research from the world of psychology.
4. We use realistic examples.
We don’t believe in hypotheticals. Our course will provide you with practical examples of issues you’ll face on a day to day basis in the coding industry.
This course targets students who:
You can still benefit from this course even if you're not the exact target audience. You simply apply the information to meet your needs.
If you haven’t completed your core coding studies, this course can be done in parallel to any coding course. This course does not deal explicitly with coding itself. As well, some of the information is applicable primarily when you are working in a business or team setting.
If you aren’t starting your own business, you will still find this course useful. These skills apply even if you are working for someone else. Whether you are part of a coding team or management in client-facing position, you can benefit.
