Understanding and improving soft skills will help workers at all levels meet and exceed employer expectations.

This convenient workshop includes videos, examples, interactive quizzes, and downloadable content that reinforce key objectives. After completing the workshop, participants can print a "Soft Skills Advantage Summary" and a Certificate of Completion.
