We want your top Coursera course/Specialization recommendations on the theme of key soft skills in the workplace!

☑ Have you taken at least four Coursera courses to improve your soft skills?

☑ Have you applied what you learned to your work?

☑ Do you like to help others?

This is a unique opportunity to curate a collection of Coursera courses and/or Specializations that you personally recommend for people who want to develop strong interpersonal and other soft skills to succeed on the job.

We're especially interested in collections that have equipped you with skills that you've effectively applied in job interviews and on the job.

The very best collection(s) will be turned into an official Coursera Collection! Check out these Coursera Collections for inspiration:

Next Steps

  1. Reply to this post with your list of 4 to 10 Coursera courses and/or Specializations related to workplace soft skills
  2. Give a reason why you included each course/Specialization
  3. Suggest a title for your collection
  4. Describe what people will learn as a result of completing your collection and/or what sorts of challenges they might be ready for
✳ There's no deadline, but I'll be reviewing collections on a rolling basis, i.e., as they are posted. I recommend posting your collection as soon as possible! If your collection is selected, I'll contact you via private message here in the Community with next steps. ✳

Hi. I’m happily overwhelmed by courses and there is no one I rate inferior to another. I have been collecting each topic after a sudden idea and easy enthusiasm, which made me develop anxiety just because I intended them as a to-do list. While it’s not, and I discover myself very faithful to my choices in a chain-of-ideas attitude,

  • but please let me free of doing when I feel to. There is courses I really enjoy one year after, just can see the point.

Reasons for Coursera also were self-paced path, rather than certificate. Don’t annoy me with personal progress pop-ups: fast learning is fast forgetting -- just that. 

Very disappointed by courses pay-for-testing, feel rather tricked: learning is made of practicing and there should be more stress on exercises sometimes - eg Magic in the Middle Ages 

No, I seem I never took any soft skills course here (except Business English&Networking, Negotiations, Design Thinking etc). I had a premium window in Linkedin and followed a course on Managing Difficoult Conversations and the basic concept of never taking up an underground conflict, but discuss frankly as soon as possible was clear. 

But honestly when I worked last year something like a pirates’ ship you can’t just follow a shirt and tie tutorial. I just understood I had to put away my pride, for a short time. Thanks
