Soft skills are the base for learning all other skills. It used to be thought that hard skills would get you in the door, but that soft skills would keep you there. However, recent studies have shown that a lack of essential soft skills won’t even get you in the door anymore. When studying hundreds of job postings put out by employers, they found the top mentioned requirements were the “ability to work well with others” and “communication skills.” Soft skills – how you relate to others and yourself – are non-negotiable.
Yes, you can learn soft skills. It is true that certain soft skills come more naturally to some people based on their nature and nurture, but just like any hard skill, they can also be acquired over time. Similarly to hard skills, soft skills are like a muscle that must be exercised and maintained in order to stay in top shape. You won’t walk out of a leadership workshop as suddenly the best leader there ever was, but you will learn strategies that leaders commonly practice and ways to start building that skill within yourself.
Yes, in fact “soft skills” are often known as “people skills” and it’s better to learn them with other people. Imagine you’re learning public speaking and presentation skills. Practicing by yourself, you won’t get to see the reaction of the audience, get real-time feedback from your instructor or be able to practice with people in a non-judgmental environment.

Organizations that learn effective communication are nearly 5 times as likely to retain the best employees (salesforce.com). 85% of job success comes from having well-developed soft skills (Harvard University). We can provide a plentiful body of research that shows the positive impact of learning soft skills. Ultimately, your team will work better together, be more productive, be better able to handle stress and adversity, and be more resourceful and empathic.

We prefer small class sizes, so that every participant can get individualized attention. If the workshop is held within our training facility, our class sizes range from 5-20 individuals, depending on a multitude of factors. If we are working with your team in your space, class sizes depend on how many members of your team will be in attendance. However, we still prefer groups of 5-20 individuals, and no more than 30 attendees. This all being said, we customize our training programs to your context, so don’t worry how many people you have – we’ll work it out.
