How to Learn Soft Skills during COVID-19?

soft skills training

Soft skills group training is one of the many things that has become more difficult with the COVID-19 pandemic. With everyone spending more time at home, it’s become increasingly challenging to develop soft skills, including interpersonal and communication skills, among others. 

Fortunately, virtual soft skills training is an excellent option for companies maintaining a work-from-home or hybrid work model. You can continue to foster the growth of your employees through online workshops and training on everything from verbal skills to team development. 

The Importance of Online Soft Skills Training

While in-person learning is ideal for soft skills training, some soft skills are needed to be productive while working remotely, such as communication and adaptability. It’s imperative for your team to be able to effectively communicate to maintain productivity while working from home. 

Lines can easily be crossed when working online. Tone and humour can get lost in emails, and calls are less personal than face-to-face meetings. If COVID-19 has taught us anything, it’s that life changes quickly—not only during a global pandemic but at any time. Being able to roll with the changes and adapt quickly is an earmark of a well-rounded employee. 

Equip your team with the skills and knowledge they need to carry on working from home, or wherever they may be, effectively. 

What Online Soft Skills Workshops Are Available?

What you offer to your employees depends on their personal goals and where your organization can improve as a whole. For example, while a workshop on team development skills may benefit the entire company, only a small group may be interested in developing their knowledge of management skills. Catering to your employees’ individual goals and company objectives is the key to getting the most out of virtual soft skills training. 

You can find online workshops on a variety of skills, including: 

How to Teach Soft Skills to Your Employees Online?

Engaging your employees while working remotely can be challenging, especially when you’re asking them to spend more time on the computer. However, soft skills aren’t exclusive to your organization or its objectives. They’re broader life skills that your employee can apply to other parts of their life. When you offer courses and workshops that they’re genuinely interested in to help them move forward in their career, you won’t have to figure out how to teach them—they’ll want to learn. 

Partnering with The Soft Skills Group (TSSG) to facilitate workshops is a great way to help your employees develop their soft skills
