Workplace Excellence Soft Skills Series & Facilitator Certification

THE REALITY: A Crucial Skills Gap in the Workforce

In today’s competitive workplace, the success of employees and employers alike depends on a strong workforce comprised of people with not only the educational, technical or trade “hard” skills required for the job, but also the essential “soft” skills to survive, thrive and compete. Essential workplace skills include effective communication, dependability, attitude, and so much more, all of which add up to professionalism on the job and desire to help the company succeed.

THE RESPONSE: The Workplace Excellence Series

The Workplace Excellence Series responds to this reality by bridging the skills gap. Developed through a public-private partnership with employer input and vetted across industries, it helps job seekers, students, veterans, and workers at all levels to cultivate the essential workplace skills employers seek when hiring, retaining, and advancing employees today.

2 Day Workplace Excellence Facilitator Certification 

The series is delivered by a Certified Facilitator. This 2-day event will equip, certify, and empower you to deliver to job seekers, incumbent workers, new hires, and/or interns with the tools to develop the essential, not-so-soft workplace skills which employers demand today.  

What will you learn?

The Employer's Perspective. A powerful dose of the employer's perspective is woven throughout the series, so we spend time seeing things and speak from that vital vantage point. In the series, we explore key concepts and engage in exercises for each module so you get familiar, get your questions answered, and can hit the ground running.


Accelerated Teaching Techniques. The series promotes interaction, relevance, and real-life application so learners get it, personalize it, and apply it. We sharpen the skills of great facilitators and increase the capacity and confidence of new facilitators. 

Receive ongoing access to bonus resources for all certified facilitators including presentations, handouts and continued group development.

What are our participants saying about the JOB SKILLS CLUB ™ ?


Jessie J Gutierrez

I thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent in the JOB CLUB workshop! The Job Search Objective worksheet was very helpful in identifying the kind of job I like, qualifications I have, what I can do better and what future goals I have for my future. Thank you Celia!

John Sendrey - Veteran

The most important thing I learned is that the process of finding new employment is a job in itself with a process that requires planning, work and persistence. I took my first steps into looking inside to realize who I am, to know what I love and figure out what I really want for my future. I received a referral that will assist me in my dream of starting and succeeding in my own business.

Patricia Cruz

I’m extremely happy to have joined the club. To be able to express out load, sharing what I want and love was amazing. I was able to express myself so well and I didn’t think I could before. No more holding myself back. I’m looking forward to next week!  I believe I learned more about the skills that I have; things I didn’t think I was able to add to my resume. As the other workshops that I attended with Celia, I feel more inspired to do a lot more than take a simple job, or even want to work for an employer. I now see myself starting a business soon! 

Lizeth Rodriguez

I learned that I was looking for a job the wrong way. I was looking for a job just so I can pay rent and bills but after today’s workshop I realized that I need to invest in my future. I have to review my job experience and be prepared for the interview. I was just walking into interviews not being prepared for it. I want to take the skills assessment, so I can really know what I am proficient in.

Sharon Lewis

It was an amazing session. I was encouraged to brand myself, to review or do an inventory of my skills, to access my achievements and how to be positive about my job search.
