Professional Skills for the Workplace

University of California, Davis via Coursera Specialization


This Specialization is intended for working professionals early in their career and for organizations who look to improve interpersonal relationship skills among their employees, clients, and customers.

These skills show up in business relationships and communication and ultimately impact professional effectiveness.

You will be able to develop a competitive advantage by learning, adapting, and harnessing insights from past endeavors. You will assess your own expectations in your current or anticipated work roles and settings, and how those may align with or differ from what is required by employers and other stakeholders now and in the future.
