Soft Skills: Introduction to Productive Work Habits

Soft Skills: Introduction to Productive Work Habits

This course is designed to teach employees how to kick bad habits and stay more focused on work throughout the day.

Availability: Seats Available

* Required Fields



The modern work world is full of distractions. Private e-mails, social media, the Internet, and chatty co-workers cut into productivity and lead to procrastination. Yet work left unfinished today becomes a mountain of work due tomorrow, making a lack of productivity one of the biggest causes of stress and problems for organizations and for individual employees.

This course is designed to teach employees how to kick bad habits and stay more focused on work throughout the day. As a result, employees will work at a higher level, be able to more effectively prioritize tasks, improve relationships with coworkers and bosses, and create long-lasting behavioral changes.

This class will be held online. All registered attendees will receive an email with login information a few days prior to the class date.
