Soft Skills & Personal Development training courses

Our range of Soft Skills and Personal Development training courses help you discover and fulfil your potential in order to create happy, productive and successful workplaces.

Our Personal Development and Soft Skills training courses have been refreshed and updated in line with Happy’s principles, and are brimming with new ideas.

Whichever sector you are from, you will find courses to give you real skills to develop your confidence and effectiveness both at work and at home. Our learners gave our courses an average work relevance score of 92% between May 2016 and May 2017.

Our facilitators, courses and venue continue to receive outstanding feedback, with a Net Promoter Score (NPS) of 84% between May 2016 and May 2017. We also currently have an average score of 4.7 out of 5 from over 300 verified customers on independent review website Feefo. Plus, if you don’t totally love your course, we offer a no quibble money-back guarantee – just get in touch within 30 days of the course date.

Private group courses

If you have a group of five or more learners, a private group course may be a better option for you.

Our public course dates shown here are based at Happy’s training centre in Aldgate, central London. However, our experienced facilitators can also come to your venue to deliver our fun and interactive sessions, anywhere across the UK and worldwide.

If you do not see the course that meets your current needs, please get in touch with our team – our experienced facilitators can create a custom course just for you.
