Soft skills are the hot topic. They are skills such as communication, empathy, time management, emotional regulation and cooperation.

This webinar will showcase the skills students need and provide a number of ways to integrate soft skills training into your current programming. Student soft skills training is worth the effort. It increases graduation rates by 30% , improves attendance, assignment completion and increases math scores by 7.9% in boys and 10% in girls . If schools are not measuring, training and tracking soft skills, they are missing the opportunity to ensure all students are ready for their future. Join us to learn how you can incorporate soft skills training into your academic and student wellness programming.
