Starting A New Business? 7 Key Points To Keep In Mind.
Soft skills training strategies need to adapt and respond to the needs of modern learners and a changing work environment. This involves considering current work scenarios, such as hybrid or remote work!
In today’s ever-changing world, soft skills training strategies need to adapt and respond to the needs of modern learners and a changing work environment. This involves considering current work scenarios, such as hybrid or remote work, while also looking ahead to evaluate organizations’ and employees’ future needs.
Our work performance is shaped by various external factors, and we need a lot of internal evaluation to have a productive work-life.
Basically, soft skills are non-technical skills that revolve around one’s work and work environment. This generally includes how one interacts with their colleagues, how they tackle problems and solve it, and how they manage their work.
Soft-skills training is training that works around on developing skills related and necessary to a work place. For example: interpersonal communication, reevaluating teamwork and brainstorming to solve a common problem.
With help of advanced technology, now work places can help facilitate learning, support micro-content consumption, and more.
Let’s look at some of the newest trends in soft skills training.
Online learning platforms are one of the most significant trends in soft skills training. These platforms allow learners to access content on demand and provide an easy way for trainers and coaches to deliver lessons remotely.
They also help keep learners engaged by providing interactive elements such as quizzes, videos, and gamification activities that simulate real-world scenarios. Online learning platforms allow learners to easily track their progress and receive personalized feedback from trainers or coaches.
Another trend in soft skills training is micro-learning content — short chunks of information that are easy to digest and designed with specific goals.
Different from traditional long-form content that is often overwhelming for busy professionals who have limited time, micro-learning content allows learners to focus on one skill or concept at a time without feeling overwhelmed by too much information at once.
It’s also easier for trainers to create micro-learning content since it doesn’t require much effort or resources compared to traditional long-form content.
VR/AR simulations are one of the most innovative trends in soft skills training because they can simulate real-world scenarios without having to leave the office or classroom setting.
Through these simulations, learners can practice their interpersonal skills, such as communication and negotiation, while receiving real-time feedback from their coach or mentor on how they should approach certain situations differently next time.
VR/AR simulations also reinforce concepts learned during soft skills courses, since they enable learners to get hands-on practice with their newly acquired knowledge.
Soft skills training has become increasingly important with the growth of remote work scenarios and organizations recognizing the value of “people skills” when it comes to success in business today.
To ensure that employees stay up-to-date with current trends in soft skill development, organizations must take advantage of new technologies that make it easier for employees to learn wherever they are. By using these tools wisely, organizations can equip their employees with essential people skills needed for success now and in the future!

If a woman insists on her prospective groom earning enough to keep her comfortable, she is not being “lazy”. She is just being practical, just like men!
When an actress described women as “lazy” because they choose not to have careers and insist on only considering prospective grooms who earn a lot, many jumped to her defence.
Many men (and women) shared stories about how “choosy” women have now become.
One wrote in a now-deleted post that when they were looking for a bride for her brother, the eligible women all laid down impossible conditions – they wanted the groom to be not more than 3 years older than them, to earn at least 50k per month, and to agree to live in an independent flat.
Most of my women clients are caregivers—as mothers, wives and daughters. And so, they tend to feel guilty about their ambitions. Belief in themselves is hard to come by.

“I don’t want to take a pay cut and accept the offer, but everyone around me is advising me to take up what comes my way,” Tanya* told me over the phone while I was returning home from the New Delhi World Book Fair. “Should I take it up?” She summed up her dilemma and paused.
I have been coaching Tanya for the past three months. She wants to change her industry, and we have been working together on a career transition roadmap.
