College to Corporate Program - Soft Skills

Enrollment in this course is by invitation only
Inventing of a new larger you to step into a domain that is new and unfamiliar – what about you that you can depend on.

About This Course

Any new or expanded game requires practice of new or enhanced skills. Stepping out from College to the Professional domain is considered to be similar in nature. The Soft Skills module is intended to introduce you to the new you that may be invented, and then practiced for the game to be played.

Each of us is trained to be successful, and we find our own ways to accomplish what we desire. All these are within a set of circumstances and the immediate environment (parents, relatives, teachers, friends, social media). A change in such an environment can come suddenly when one moves from the “comfort” of a “known/familiar” setting to that of a differently paced world, where who you have known yourself to be is necessary, but not sufficient. The module will focus on providing practice sessions to invent and build a muscle for the expectations ahead.
