Transferable skills and personal behaviours are just as integral to the smooth functioning of an organisation as are an individual’s specialist and technical skills. Employers no longer focus on one without the other. As much as expert skills and knowledge are significant to carrying out the role and responsibilities pertaining to everyday tasks, workplace behavior and soft skills can no longer be ignored. A right combination of the two will help you carry out your duties related to the workplace effectively.

People who have gained skills in commercial awareness will understand what makes an organisation successful and what needs to be done in order to be profitable. Learn to manage your emotions without it getting the better of you, become a master at time coordination, learn how to deal with colleagues and other pressures that accompany any job role and how to face daily situations that can sometimes be challenging. All this will benefit your personal development.

In this programme, you will learn about commercial awareness and how it can make a big difference in your career, you will be able to make sensible and well thought out decisions. You will gain an in-depth understanding of transferable skills and personal behaviours and why gaining them makes you a desirable candidate to leading organisations and potential employers.
