    Soft Skill Training ROI: What’s the Reality?

    Presented by Teresa Marie of Positive Results LLC

    This presentation has been pre-approved for 1.5 HRCI General Credit Hours

    How often have employees been sent to training, only to discover the skill or behavior has not improved? ROI on soft skill training such as conflict resolution, communication, and leadership effectiveness can be very subjective and hard to assess.  Teresa Marie’s presentation will reveal the realities of soft skill training and how to improve those realities.  By taking certain steps before and after training you can increase ROI almost five fold.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Steps to hold trainer/trainee’s accountable for soft skill improvement

    • Reward/Punishment mechanisms for follow through on soft skill accomplishment

    • Set up and follow-up design to insure 85% success rate
