Transferable skills and personal behaviours are just as integral to the smooth functioning of an organisation as are an individual’s specialist and technical skills. Employers no longer focus on one without the other. As much as expert skills and knowledge are significant to carrying out the role and responsibilities pertaining to everyday tasks, workplace behavior and soft skills can no longer be ignored. A right combination of the two will help you carry out your duties related to the workplace effectively.

Learn to manage your emotions without it getting the better of you, become a master at time coordination, learn how to deal with colleagues and other pressures that accompany any job role and how to face daily situations that can sometimes be challenging. This will all benefit your personal development.

In this programme, you will learn how personal development aligns with professional growth. You will gain an in-depth understanding of transferable skills and personal behaviours and why gaining them makes you a desirable candidate to leading organisations and potential employers. It will help you contribute to the overall success of an organisation.
