Soft Skills – What are they and why are they important to the workplace?

Research consistently shows that good communication skills are one of the most highly regarded and sort after skills across nearly all professions. The need to develop and hone your soft skills is becoming increasingly paramount as technology replaces basic technical tasks and the emphasis on people becomes more important.

In this session you will learn:

  • How and why emotions influence thinking, behaviour, performance, decision-making and results;
  • How to develop effective communication skills, and their importance to the workplace;
  • How leaders can bridge the soft skills gap, and in doing so, give yourself and your organisation a huge strategic advantage; and
  • How to develop soft skills in your business or organisation for future success.
