“Wait! Are you serious? ‘Soft skills’ training???”

Yes…because not all professional development training should be technical.

CONCRETE STRATEGIES TO: is a series of virtual, instructor-led workshops designed to help professionals unleash the potential in themselves, to inspire others and cultivate high-performing teams.

Regardless of where you are in your career – just starting out, shift supervisor, department manager, or senior leadership – a strong set of ‘soft skills’ is essential to any successful career. These skills make you more well-rounded and more promotable – a better job candidate, a better employee and a better team member overall.

To achieve your true potential, spend 1 1/2 hours with us virtually on Wednesdays in June, developing these skills to become a better, more confident, and more effective version of yourself.

Personal Development (i.e. soft skills)is an important component to your overall professional career.
