Social skills are the success factors for your career!

Everybody has them, but almost nobody exploits their full potential: Soft Skills. The importance of Soft Skills has also increased enormously in the IT sector. Particularly in project management, “soft” skills such as moderation and empathy are decisive, since both project managers and software architects and developers continuously interact with other departments and have to communicate effectively.


Conduct conversations more consciously, present them successfully.

Our soft skills training is based on the iSAQB guidelines and is aimed specifically at IT professionals. In this module you learn how to more consciously conduct discussions, successfully provide presentations, moderate workshops and solve conflicts – since work in the IT sector takes place among people!


  • Basics of communication models and types
  • Individual and group talks
  • Visualization and moderation techniques
  • Basics of conflict management
  • Reflection techniques
