Mini Tutorial: Soft Skills Workshop

Most engineers are experts in their fields — but they don’t learn the “soft skills” that are critical for working successfully with others. Here is a session specifically designed to engage in different facets of social “soft skills”.

This tutorial has been prepared for beginners/students/young/experienced engineers, who are keen plus motivated to learn more about soft skills in order to get further their career. After experiencing this session, you *should* find yourself with a better level of emotional quotient (EQ), from where you can grow yourself further.

Attendees need have a desire to step out of their comfort zone. A fee of $65 (IEEE members, $95 for non-members) is required to cover materials, handouts, tutorial notes, refreshments, etc.
