Signature Soft Skills Workshops

"There’s not one specific thing or skill people have to have to work for us. But I can tell you why we fire people: soft skills. We hire for hard skills. We fire for soft skills. The ability to interact and communicate with others or behave ethically and take responsibility for things tends to be where people tend to break down.” –  Rick Stephens, Senior Vice President of HR, The Boeing Corporation.

Some testimonials from previous workshops:

"I found the workshop really useful in helping me see a way out of a spiral of depression. I have embarked on a journey of discovery, set achievable goals, seen results and been able to make decisions and stick to them."
Tricia Hornby - Holistic Massage therapist

"I found the course a very interesting introduction to coaching and was surprised how the exercises we did raised my awareness of how fixed I had become in my thinking. I have come to realise that I have more positives in my life and can focus effectively on the areas that need resolution. Having seen Isla subsequently I now have a clearer picture of what I want to be and the support to enable me to get there."
Jackie Owen - Wiltshire
