The Soft Skills Company is a management consulting and professional development consultancy providing customized training solutions for government and nonprofit clients. We offer an array of workshops and courses designed to strengthen interactive, relational, adaptive skills among an increasingly diverse workforce.
Whether a two-day intensive workshop, a half-day focused course, or multi-day sessions, our interactive model is tailored to meet the specific needs of your group or organization. The Soft Skills Company can help your organization improve nearly any area of workplace interaction.
Our trainings are normally delivered on-site, in classroom settings. Currently, we are operating in the virtual space with online trainings. We provide all training materials and build upon each participant's existing knowledge and prior experience. Our "up and out of the seat" training approach allows the course to come alive for participants, helping us deliver on our promise of relevant and impactful learning. Rooted in current research and established best practices, our courses promote the essential elements of the professional relationship: accountability, trust and communication.
A Skills-Building Course
This 16-hour course will strengthen both leadership and facilitation skills, while increasing participant's ability to facilitate difficult conversations, identify shared objects and problem-solve with diverse stakeholders while strengthening their confidence in building consensus, communicating effectively and strengthening group dynamic skills.
The Heart of Governance
Serving on a nonprofit board should be a rewarding experience. Unfortunately, many people serve on boards unaware of their legal and ethical responsibilities. This three-hour workshop will acquaint participants with a framework for new and seasoned board members to step powerfully into their role as stewards of the organization.

Relationships are the foundation on which effective teams are built. The ability to communicate across organizational cultures advances the organization's mission and exemplifies leadership and consistency. In this 8-hour course participants will strengthen their ability to resolve differences, build trust and increase respect among peers.
