What are ‘Super Skills’?

The Grass Roots Team recognise that the new technical skills and knowledge that young engineers will gain during their time at University is invaluable. Equally important to their own development, and that of future employers, are the other skills that complement the technical competence to make up a ‘well rounded’ engineer.

These ‘other’ skills are sometimes referred to as ‘Soft Skills’ …or Interpersonal/People Skills.

The Grass Team design and deliver these key skills to Students. We know that these key skills are important to young people. So important infact, we call them "Super Skills!"

Future employers often cite the fact that they are more inclined to hire graduates who have some of these skills in place before joining the company. They will look for evidence of emotional Intelligence, communication and teamwork skills, leadership and Influencing skills.

The Grass Roots team can provide development to students with all of these. Our aim is to get students into a position where they can feel a little more equipped, mentally, for the workplace.

Training Topics that we currently rollout to Universities and Students include:

  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Communication Skills
  • Goalsetting
  • ‘The Power of Storytelling’ when presenting
  • Time Management
  • Personal Branding
  • Resilience
  • Mentoring & Coaching
  • Management & Leadership
  • Assertiveness
  • Conflict Management
  • ‘People’Solving

There are also opportunities for students to become ‘Ambassadors’ of ours. In short, we’re able to train up individuals to deliver this stuff within their own communities or student networks. A real learning and development opportunity for students...whilst enhancing their CV at the same time!

If any of the above interests you...or you’d like to find out a little bit more about any of the Super skills topics for example, please contact the Grass Roots Team. We’d love to hear from you and help in any way that we can.
