This foundational CBT Nuggets soft skills training prepares learners to navigate the messy and complex interconnected world of relationships and business interactions with expertise, respect and confidence.
A lot of people tend to dismiss soft skills training as frivolous or touchy-feely. That tendency probably comes from the idea that no one likes to think that they don't already know how to do things like write clearly, speak well, solve problems calmly, manage time capably, or interact seamlessly with team members. These things seem so commonplace and simple that the idea of getting training in them can be like admitting you missed that day in kindergarten. But the people who think so are mistaken: not only is soft skills training crucial for the majority of the workforce, but it's no fault of your own if you do need it. Working alongside others and doing it well requires a highly intentional mindset - with this training, you'll learn it and how to apply it to make your workcenter not just more pleasant to work in, but more effective and profitable.
After finishing this CBT Nuggets training, you'll be better equipped to interact with co-workers and maintain a respectful demeanor in difficult times.
For anyone who manages soft skills training, this CBT Nuggets training can be used to onboard new IT professionals, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a CBT Nuggets reference resource.

Soft skills user training. No matter the career field you find yourself in, soft skills training applies to you.

New or aspiring IT professionals. The IT profession has a bit of a reputation: that the people who work in the industry are distant, aloof, rude or anti-social. This undeserved reputation probably stems from the strong personalities and keen minds that get drawn to the IT field. But wherever there are different personality types struggling to interact productively and politely, soft skills training can help pave the way. This training is meant for exactly that: how to communicate well - in writing, speaking, in meetings, and more.
