Soft Skills Resources

As a part of our mandate to promote Education, Awareness, and Workforce Development, Manitoba Environmental Industries Association supports the enhancement of soft-skills amongst individuals who are working in the Natural Resources, Energy, and Environment sectors.

Soft-skills refer to the non-academic qualities required of an individual for them to secure employment.  For the Energy, and Environment & Cleantech industries between 2018 and 2024, Workplace Education Manitoba (WEM) used job forecasting data specific to Manitoba, along with data regarding attribute requirements to predict that active listening, speaking, reading comprehension, critical thinking, and monitoring will be some of the most sought-after qualities from employers seeking to hire.

The following are a number of soft-skills courses, workshops, and programs hosted by our partners:

Padraig Coaching & Consulting Inc.

We facilitate a rapid transition for everyone, and bring the team to high-performance quickly.

The Network 

The Network is a leadership peer group, coach-led, year-long learning program aimed at relatively new managers and future managers and includes 5 group coaching sessions and these 4 leadership courses:
