My own personal career journey has seen me become an expert in communication areas such as emotional intelligence, active listening, public speaking and presenting, persuasion and negotiation, developing both interpersonal and intrapersonal skills, critical thinking and adaptability, problem solving, conflict management and several other areas that when combined create both a professional coach and also an expert communicator. Why soft skills development? Each of these skill areas in their own right is essential to the "toolbox" of anyone aspiring to lead others, create a network, articulate themselves effectively and build their career in any field. You may have the best hard skills of anyone. You are an expert with computers, logistics or banking for example. However, if you wish to share this knowledge or convince others of the value of it you will need to communicate efficiently to achieve your desired result. This may involve persuading or giving a speech to a large audience for example. One day you may change career path or decide to build your own business. Hard skills which served you well for years may no longer be relevant to your new position or venture. Soft skills however are both applicable and vital to any industry and any situation you may encounter in either professional or personal life. With over 9 years’ experience conducting workshops and seminars, giving speeches and training corporate employees and civil servants of all levels and positions I am able to offer the following development solutions to suit your needs. These can be conducted as intensive workshops or broken down into training courses scheduled over a longer period of time. Bespoke training solutions specific to your individual requirements are also available upon request and consultation.
