“I was always skeptical about these soft skills trainings until I found Creativa. Their soft skills training course is so unique that you will feel it is just designed for you. It addresses our common inhibitions, dilemmas and fears that we face in client calls and trains you to face them with confidence. These courses are not just designed for improving your vocabulary or grammar. They will change your perspective of your client's psychology and uplift your confidence. Feeling comfortable in your skin is way more important than improving the language. Creativa is the only place I found so far where you get this whole package of confidence.”

This course is NOT for you if you:

  • want a person to talk to to practice

You will learn:

  • Friendly yet professional ways of speaking

  • How to adjust the tone of your communication

  • Collocations or words that often go together;

  • Frequently used business idioms

"Many of us have never been instructed on the granular levels of personal interactions that make the real difference in being ordinary or standing out in business settings. I know. I witnessed it play out for years. People like me who don't naturally possess a standout personality can learn from your products the basic tenets of effective interactions, even down to the micro levels of facial expression, voice intonations, and others that we didn't know had been defined and had always just chalked it up to personality differences. It felt empowering watching the video, giving me confidence from feeling equipped just by knowing these basic tenets. It's very helpful for guys like me who weren't raised in environments where decorum and social graces was an emphasis. It's good for us, ESL's, and anyone self-aware who desires to conduct themselves appropriately but has no role models or teachers to follow."
