Soft Skills Training

The purpose of the event is to help people who are required to manage the emotional behaviour of others to develop ‘soft’ skills so that when communicating and giving feedback at work they will consider the people on the ‘other side’ of the conversation. The aim is to raise the level of skills and understanding and to give the learners transferable skills as well as increased confidence. The success of the training can be measured by observable change of behaviour back in the workplace. Several sessions are available ranging from one hour to two days.
