John also shares about the importance of having great soft skills and the impact they have on your professional and life experiences.
We’ve all had moments when we’ve failed to speak up for ourselves and said yes when we really wanted to say no. Luckily, assertiveness is a learned ability. It’s learned through practice. This course will provide you with the knowledge, skills and confidence to become more assertive, taking control of your life in the process.

Currently, one of our primary focus areas is to address the issue of a poorly prepared and trained workforce, as it relates to "soft skills". Defining "soft skills" can be difficult in itself, but for the sake of this introduction, we will define them as the following:
Hardworking and dependable
Taken from Workforce connections: Key soft skills that foster youth workforce success, Child Trends, June 2015
These skills along with a few others will hopefully help employees, that are interested, transition into Leadership and Management positions. Our courses here allow users to come full circle by starting or reviewing basic "soft skills" before progressing into outstanding Leadership and Management courses.
Let Mind Over Tutors, Inc. help empower you to grow in today's workforce and life!
