PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME
Your place for courses for inter Personal DevelopmentPersonal Development training delivered at 11 UK locations or at your offices
Soft skills - sometimes referred to as interpersonal or social skills - determine your ability to communicate, interact and organise yourself. These transferrable skills, can be used in all career paths as well as your personal life.
Developing job-specific abilities are important to succeed; however, these 'hard skills' are rarely enough on their own. People with extensive technical knowledge can struggle to perform if they lack interpersonal skills, so perfecting your soft skills is essential if you are to recognise your full potential.
People with good soft skills communicate effectively, build positive relationships, manage their time properly and work well under pressure. They are assertive, confident and get their message across while showing respect towards other people. Everybody benefits.
Why is Personal Development Important?
Luckily, just like technical skills, soft skills can be learned and enhanced, which can not only improve your job performance, but all aspects of your life, far beyond your career.
The modern workplace is often a demanding environment, and developing personal qualities and attitudes will help get you to the top and keep you there.

"Trainer and other trainees were very helpful and encouraging of each other. It was nice to know we all have similar issues with time management and the world of worK!"
Arron Baker, Course: Report Writing Jul 9 2019
"Good tutor approach, small numbers on course allowed lots of value to be obtained."
Oliver Whiteley, Course: Effective Time Management Jul 8 2019
"As the only attendee my training was tailored very closely to my own situation. Vivian (apologies if spelt wrongly) asked lots of questions and listened intently to understand the scope of my job role. As we went through the workbook she highlighted particular areas that were suited to my needs. She also had many anecdotes which helped understanding the training a lot easier one might have missed with another trainer. I have already started my activity log which has been insightful from day one."
