Soft skills for the 21st century

The skills that let you stand out from the crowd.

Grades and IQs do not determine career success, soft skills do. Technical expertise on its own is not enough - it needs to be supplemented by interpersonal skills. Skills that allow you to express yourself clearly, confidently and with empathy. Skills that allow you to lead and complete projects on time. Skills that turn you from being just a co-worker to being an inspiring colleague and leader.

Soft skills are hard to measure. They are not something you can easily take tests for. Rather they are a state of mind, a series of habits rooted in your daily life that form the basis of how you work and communicate with those around you. With Intek, your soft skills training will enable you to fit seamlessly into a workplace and hit the ground running with your new team.

They are not rules you rote learn, but practices you apply every day and integrate little by little into your working routine.

How does it work ?

Soft skills are a fundamental part of our innovative learning model, and we instill them throughout the curriculum. You will work on completing explicit tasks, such as interviewing professionals, doing presentations and writing reports, as well as getting implicit practice, in areas like peer reviews, project collaboration and team communication, as you work on specific projects.

Our approach is to weave layers of soft skills into every step of your learning experience.

  • Communication
  • Critical thinking
  • Problem solving
  • Self-reflection
  • Leadership
  • Collaboration
  • Project management
