Now Offering Soft Skills Programming
Walsh College has prepared a program to coach individuals on the importance of soft skills in the workplace. The future differentiator for job candidates, and the businesses that hire them, will be the soft skills: the non-technical, intangible, personality-specific skills that determine strengths of a leader, team member, listener, negotiator, and conflict mediator. These skills will be necessary to function successfully in this intercultural global environment. For information and registration go to walshcollege.edu/softskills.
