Soft skills for IT professionals

Increasingly the technical and industrial sectors are more on the look out for those experts who are also team players, capable communicators, effective negotiators,...

Some major challenges encountered are:

We propose to you this portfolio of 5 training days of soft skills :

Day 1: Communication skills (see also Communication skills for the technical professional)

Day 2: negotiation skills

Day 3: Presentation-techniques

Day 4: Working in a team

Day 5: Dealing with potential conflicts and difficult behaviour

The above themes can be selected separately, or you can compose a package of 1,2,3,4, of 5 days, entirely according to your need. You also have the freedom to offer the modules in a row or spread in time, so as to not withdraw your co-workers too long out from their production environment.

When the proposal appeals to you, we can sit with you around the table and adapt it to your needs.


No public sessions are currently scheduled. We will be pleased to set up an on-site course or to schedule an extra public session (in case of a sufficient number of candidates). Interested? Please contact ABIS.
