The Complete Soft Skills for Techies and Coders
'Soft skills' include networking, communication and management skills.
If you want to start your own coding business, there's much more to it than the technical aspects of the job. We want to teach coders how to stand out in the tech industry and successfully start their own business.
Even if you don’t want to make your own company, this course will teach you skills that will make you invaluable wherever you work.
Marketing yourself as a coder is a strategic career plan. Learning to code is becoming as important as learning to read. The world economy has a growing software industry. You don’t need to buy expensive machinery or an office building to create the next blockbuster app or software tool.
Learning to code is not enough to start your own coding business. There is much more to it than the technical aspects of the job.
Many coders lack the essential soft skills, necessary to elevate themselves from being just another talented coder, to becoming a hugely successful coding entrepreneur - We've made this course to help the Steve Wozniaks of the world, be a little more like Steve Jobs.
Why soft skills for techies?
True, a large part of what you do as a coder is technical. But to be successful, you need to do just as much interacting with clients, other coders, stakeholders and of course, your ever growing team, as you thrive in the role of being the owner of your own coding business.
With the right soft skills, you can easily master the many challenges of starting and running a successful and highly profitable business.
1. We have a unique approach.
We based this course on proven psychological methods and on our experience in the coding industry. We’ve narrowed down the specific skills you need to get ahead, and stay ahead, as a successful coding entrepreneur.
Other soft skills courses don’t cater to the unique challenges of coding. We do.
At the end of each section, you will know how to apply soft skills to benefit yourself, your employees, and your clients, and ultimately ensuring that your business turns a huge profit.
