MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Northern Michigan University's Continuing Education and Workforce Development Department provided professionals with a time management training course Thursday morning.
32 people attended the professional development class at the Jacobetti Complex where they learned everything from how to overcome procrastination to how to delegate more efficiently.
This two-hour workshop is the first in a series focused on developing soft skills.
"Communication is becoming a bit of a barrier. We're forgetting how to communicate, our customer service skills might be slipping just a little bit. Those soft skills are just as important as the hard skills, and they're harder to train," said Stephanie Zadroga-Langlois, Director of NMU's Continuing Education and Workforce Development Department.
These professional development classes are open to the public and can be customized for individual businesses.
