Trainings, Workshops – Psychological Centre SOVA

Learning is the process of acquiring new knowledge and competence. Training is made with the purpose of improving the opportunities, potential, and skills of the participants.

During training, the learning process is goal-oriented and organized. It is focused on the acquiring a systematic social experience. Learning in the Training stabilizes and improves the regulation functions, shortens the time needed to form new abilities, acquiring knowledge and new habits.

The thing that makes our Training different from different forms of learning, is that they are focused on the developing of the so-called “soft skills”. These are skills related to the building of a team, delegating tasks, selection of the right staff, problem-solving, planning, organizing, motivation etc. The training is focused on building ourselves to be more human.

What are soft skills?

Soft skills are skills related to us being more human. The ease of communication, the ability to deal with the crisis, the ability of time-management (yours and your employees), leadership, are becoming more and more key for the success in this global communicative world.

Soft skills are needed every day in all spheres of life, not only in the work world. There are related to:
-how we communicate with each other
-how we listen
-how we cooperate
-how we make decisions
-how we work in a team
-how we exit a conflict
-how we lead a team and a meeting
-how we negotiate
-how we manage our resources
-how we progress

Leaders on all levels need soft skills and the ability to recognize and apply these. Our training build upon what we already have a life experience and give us such skills, that they have not taught us in school – such as- how to deal with work or client relationships.

Training is the format of our courses. These are focused on practical work and exercising the skills. Developing social skills is an important way of personal and professional progress, as well as it is very important for adapting to the ever-changing environment. This is knowledge, skills, abilities, attitudes, and values, which are important for the success of the individual.

Here are a few examples of topics in our training:

Communication: The ability to communicate effectively with people is one of the most important advantages of our personal, social and professional lives. To be able to do this, we need to be ready to forward some information clearly and rationally, to be able to spot the difference between what matters and what does not and to be aware of the needs of the others. When we have an effective communication, we are not just transmitting information but we are influencing one another.

Stress: The “KEY” is not avoiding stress, but to recognize it and manage it, so we avoid the negative influence of it.
Cooperation and teamwork: This is when people work together towards a common goal and try to reach an agreement, to help each other, to distribute their opportunities and look for solutions.

Problem Solving: Employers usually decide that their employees will have the ability to problem solve different problems that they face. To be competent in this means that you need to be able to recognize, value and classify the problem in its context. It is important to see the problem from a perspective and to choose the right method to deal with it and then apply it. Doing this, it is important to notice the stimuli and changes that affect the problem and the solution. In the end, it is important to evaluate the problem and to use the information to improve our work and ourselves.
