Soft skills training from ITD helps people do their work more effectively or more efficiently. We have delivered training in many countries and with thousands of participants, so we can help you and your colleagues develop your soft skills.
We develop and deliver high impact soft skills training in a variety of subjects from leadership to project management. The kind of skill areas which help people improve how they go about their work, because soft skills training can benefit all of us, whatever our role. We give ideas and explore how to apply them in a workshop style that helps people do what they do a little better, and we do this in a fun and interactive style.
Solving your challenges with soft skills training
We start with a discussion about your needs, because our training is designed to suit you and we do this at no extra cost. So we ask questions like; What lies behind your need for training? How might training help this? Describe the outcomes you're looking for? What are the participants' views? Let's explore the results we might expect? How will the change or development required be delivered? What kind of follow up should we consider?
Based on this discussion we develop soft skills training to suit your needs and those of the participants. We've been doing this for over 20 years and with such a lot of experience we can easily select the ideas that will have most impact for you. If there is more than one group to train we recommend having a pilot, because even with extensive preparation our experience is that it is always better to test the training first.
Delivering soft skills training in a workshop style
One of the things that makes us different is how we deliver our soft skills training. Some training companies turn up and deliver the same content to everyone, but we work much harder because we tailor the content to suit the needs and challenges of the participants in the room. In this way it is more of a bespoke training solution. When participants share their challenges and we discuss them to find possible solutions, that's where we excel.
Many of our soft skill training offerings are delivered in a workshop style so that the participants are looking at their work during the training. With our Presentation Skills Training this is easy to see when participants use their own presentations to practice in the training room. But it also applies to our Nudge training which helps people apply the Nudge ideas to help influence others.
30+ countries & thousands of participants.
We've delivered soft skills training in over 30 countries worldwide, which means we have probably worked with people similar to those in your organisation in terms of their culture and work roles.
Along the way we've met thousands of participants and we've worked with many different roles. Clients have included many different types of organisations from charities to biotech and law firms to engineers. Such broad and extensive experience means that we can hit the ground running in terms of developing a training solution that will best suit your organisation.

20+ years experience
We've been designing and delivering soft skills training for over 20 years, which means you can benefit from our experience to design your next soft skills training programme. And we're still learning because we believe you never stop having the chance to learn, refresh and improve. We use an open-loop learning culture which means we're always aware of opportunities to improve. For example, managing clients' expectations on the impact of training is crucial and we use our knowledge of behavioural change theories to explore what the probable outcomes of any training intervention will be.
We start with a conversation with you about your needs, those of your organisation and of the participants. Wherever possible we drill this down to behaviours, that is what behavioural change do you want to see. Then we can design the solution which best suits your needs and is tailored to fulfil your objectives, by helping your people make the changes you want them to.
Big & small organisations
We love working with international organisations and we love working with small local organisations. Different challenges, both very rewarding. We meet inspirational people in all sorts of places doing all sorts of jobs. Soft skills training includes taking ideas from one sector and applying them to others, so that breadth of experience is to the benefit of our clients and you.
Developing innovative soft skills training ideas
We love to develop new ideas which help people to learn. This is achieved by developing our own IP (Intellectual Property) and sharing this with participants to help them learn how to do their work in a smarter way.
