Business Skills Training

Business Skills (or Soft Skills) training from New Horizons of East Tennessee (Knoxville, Chattanooga and Johnson City-Kingsport-Bristol) is a cost-effective solution for developing the skills your employees need to be successful in a challenging climate. Possessing technical or hard skills is not enough, your staff must be able to communicate effectively, plan, organize, resolve conflicts and work effectively as a team.

Does Your Business Have a Soft Skills Gap?

When your workforce has a lot of technical skills but an absence of soft skills, you have a soft skills gap. Soft skills are what accompany the hard skills and help your organization use technical expertise to its full advantage.

  • If you're really good at getting clients, and not so good at retaining them, you may have a soft skills gap
  • If you have a lot of staff turnover and have to keep retraining people, chances are you have a soft skills gap
  • When you have several managers, but no real leaders – that's a soft skills gap
