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.

How Do Activia's Courses Help You?

With courses on time management, assertiveness, communication skills and relationship building, Activia will help you develop valuable skills that will benefit you both in and outside work. We'll teach you how to improve your own self-management, organise your workspace effectively, get your thoughts across in a clear and coherent manner, how to become an effective communicator - and even become more likeable!

Our personal development training courses are designed to have a positive impact on every aspect of your life - that's inside and outside work - and will enhance your relationships as well as your productivity. They will maximise your potential and empower you to deal with the day-to-day issues that can arise wherever you are.

And the benefits are quantifiable: the improvement in performance will provide a huge return on any investment that you or your employer have made.

Julie Mclaren , Course: Developing Your Assertiveness Dec 17 2019
Course rating of 3 stars "It was wonderful that the course ran with just 2 delegates - we could learn form each other, but not feel lost in the crowd (as might have been the case if there were 10 of us). Thank you. Venue - instructions from railway station not clear. Parking spaces on roads poor (I did a trial run and decided to take the train on the actual day). More easily accessible venue would be appreciated. Poor food hygiene - no fridge to put the milk in, so I didn't have any tea. Thanks for the water."

Michelle Katz, Course: Time Management Dec 17 2019
Course rating of 4 stars "As I was the only participant it was perfect "
