Professional skills are skills that help us succeed in the workplace, like critical thinking, time management, self awareness, and active listening. But it’s not enough to just be aware of professional skills: the skills themselves need to be developed. With this course, learners can take charge of their professional development. Get started building your professional skills from the ground up or finessing the ones you already have.

The self-directed, online learning course includes lessons and resources that will support you to:

  • Collaborate more closely with peers and other colleagues
  • Become a better communicator–active listening and effective speaking lead to faster idea adoption
  • Learn to ‘read the room’ and be more socially perceptive and self-aware
  • Think critically and make better decisions as a result
  • Realize the importance of professional skills to long-term career growth and learning
