People Skills Training Resources

The month of June is recognized as “International People Skills Month.”  In today’s work climate, especially in the non-profit sector and the human service field, strong soft skills are vital to both the organizations and the people we serve. People skills that are needed to succeed in the workplace today include:

  • Strong communication skills
  • Getting along with others
  • Active listening skills.

In recognition of “people skills month,” I have added links below that will help you in creating training activities, ice-breakers, and exercises that will reinforce learning in the areas of active listening, diversity, teambuilding and communication.
