What is Professional development training?

Professional Development training will help you to succeed in your chosen profession. But that definition splits into two types: technical skills training, and universal professional skills training.

Technical skills training is industry specific. If you are a dentist, it would be training in dentistry; if you are in retail sales, then it would be sales training.

On the other hand, universal professional skills are not industry specific. Universal professional skills are universal; meaning everyone needs them, because we all work with fellow human beings.

If your profession requires that you interact with human beings, then you would benefit from developing your knowledge of the six universal professional skills; setting goals, communication, prioritisation, conflict resolution, emotional self-management and the ability to inspire others.

This two-day Professional Development training course is by far the most advanced, detailed, practical and applicable course on the market.

Professional Development Training Course Overview

Split over two-days, we teach you the essential skills you need in your professional life:

Goal setting: Since you succeed by achieving goals, on this course you will become an expert on how to set and achieve goals.

Clear communication: You have to make yourself clearly understood, so you will learn how to improve the clarity and accuracy of both your spoken and written language.

Prioritisation: You cannot do everything simultaneously, so we teach you the vital skill of prioritisation.

Conflict resolution/performance management: Not everyone does what they should do, so we show you how to handle conflicts in the correct manner.

Self-emotional management: We are affected by our feelings, so you will learn how to better manage your own emotions and how to feel more optimistic, motivated and confident.

Inspiring others: You need to encourage people towards the achievement of the goals that you set, so will show you the effective methods of motivation.

This course will leave you feeling inspired and eager to put your new skills into practice.

Learning Outcomes:

  • How to get the best from yourself and others
  • Achieve whatever goals you set your mind on
  • Communicate with more clarity and confidence
  • Manage your time and get more done
  • Easily handle conflict and difficult conversations
