Our Soft Skills program Our soft skills workshops, similar to our coaching services, are designed to assist the corporate sector of Barbados in improving leadership and career progression opportunities for all.
Soft skills refer to a cluster of personal qualities, habits, attitudes and social graces that make someone a good employee and compatible to work with.
Our bespoke soft skills workshops deliver solutions that build on existing good practices through a partnership approach with clients. We are results-oriented, operating on the principles of openness and transparency, with a focus on helping clients realize their potential.
Why do your employees need soft skills training? The majority of employers look for the relative hard skills necessary to do the job and don't pay much attention to the soft skills that will ensure compatibility and a good team dynamic, within the workplace. If you inherit a department and feel there's a lack of soft skills that you need, EDGE Coaching will assist you in doing something about it.
According to the Collins English Dictionary, these soft skills are defined as “the desirable qualities for certain forms of employment that do not depend on acquired knowledge: they include common sense, the ability to deal with people, and their positive outlook".
The importance of soft skills in the workplace is that they give you the ability to:
Handle interpersonal relations
Make appropriate decisions
Have a good impression and impact to gain professional development
Soft skills are key in building relationships, gaining visibility, and creating more opportunities for advancement.
