Social Skills in the Workplace

Why Attend

A growing number of professionals consider that success in the workplace requires, in addition to technical expertise, personal and social skills. This course will focus on a number of personal and social skills, which for many is more than half the equation of success. By providing participants with tips on preventing burnout, improving personal and professional focus, building a professional network, connecting with colleagues, and building social competencies, this course will help participants supplement their arsenal of technical skills. According to many management gurus, success in a corporate environment depends more on behavioral skills rather than technical skills. The aim of this course is to provide you with practical techniques and tools to help you improve such skills.  

Course Methodology
