Just days after a major partnership with Wentors, Hernovation has now onboarded Dale Carnegie to offer soft skills training to women in tech.
Dale Carnegie course trains people on how to communicate in a way that draws others in, to form closer more rewarding relationships in their personal and professional lives.
Speaking about the partnership, Laura Chite, CEO CIO East Africa noted, “We are glad to have Dale Carnegie on board. They will offer soft-skill training to the ladies.”
The course looks at developing five competencies and skills that drive success. They include; Self Confidence, Communication Skills, Human Relationships Skills, Leadership Skills, Managing Stress, and Right Attitude.
“The Dale Carnegie Course is mandatory training that every aspiring professional should look at doing as it will transform the working spirit and make one take full command of their future,” says Mustafa Abdullabhai, Managing Director, Dale Carnegie Kenya. “We are privileged and excited to partner with CIO to help the women tech leaders to be successful professionals and leaders of our nation.”
Soft skills are a combination of people skills, the traits that make one a good employee. They include etiquette, social skills, communication skills, character or personality traits, attitudes, mindsets, career attributes, social intelligence, and emotional intelligence among others.
Fostering human, non-cognitive, and interpersonal skills enabling people to communicate with clarity and empathy is key to ensuring mutual respect and understanding. Many IT pros find they’re often involved in projects and initiatives requiring the capability to drive the organisation forward and make a lasting impact. This makes effective communication critical.
While IT continues to be a main driver for success, people across the tech industry have an opportunity to help reassure their organisations and focus by enhancing their capabilities now and into the future by acquiring people relations skills among other soft skills.
