Research conducted by Harvard University and Stanford Research Center have concluded that 85% of job success comes from having well‐developed soft skills and people skills, and only 15% of job success comes from technical skills. In this class we will work to develop those “Soft skills” as well as diving into in a Christian, well rounded approach to succeeding through money management, communication, self-motivation and learning one’s own skills.
This Class will be diving into both Personal Finance and Personal Development. Each week we will be covering topics from both.
