Soft Skills for Planners

SOFT SKILLS FOR PLANNERS

Hard skills and knowledge are requirements for professional life – but it is the soft skills that make us successful. A large part of a planner’s job involves soft skills. In the planning profession they include:

  • The ability to communicate
  • Use personal persuasion and connections
  • Have confidence, patience, a positive attitude and manage our own energy and time.

This one day interactive workshop is for all planners who need to add soft skills to their professional and legal knowledge. Soft skills enable better results in all planning roles.

WHO WILL BENEFIT: Planners in all organisations and roles who need to:

  • Gain support from their colleagues
  • Work with non-planners including members of the public
  • Relate to representatives of communities and politicians

  • Communicate well - listening, using body language, persuading, gaining respect
  • Manage your own internal energy - self motivate, deal with stress, get things done
  • Create social capital - networking, collaborating and building relationships
  • Using an ethical approach for communication and decision making

HOW THE WORKSHOP WORKS:

  • Simple tools and frameworks with individual, team and group practice
  • Learning discussions and support from other planners in the same situation
  • A few practical actions that can be built into the every-day work of participants


TOPICS TO BE ADDRESSED INCLUDE:

  • Communication Skills
  • Listening with the eyes and ears
