Here you require some training activities about soft skill for student.
Soft- Skill training starts at the individual level or group where the acknowledges the need for sensitivity and empowering others. The mere presence of communicating with the right tone and words at the right time makes the response of another acknowledging and polite.
Soft Skill training improves the Quality of Work Life of employees, thereby raising their levels of productivity and satisfaction. so it is benefit for both side.
List for soft skill training is mentioned below
1) Communication Skills
2) Assertiveness Training
3) Business Etiquette
4) Time Management
5) Conflict Resolution Training
6) Building the Team
7) Stress Management Training
8) Motivational Training
9) leadership Training
10) Creativity & Innovation
This is example for one particular soft skill training.
Eg. Communication game - "Non-verbal Communication"
In this training game the participants are sitting in two pair. This training game is about introductions, remember? So it is usually played in the beginning of a training. It does not matter how familiar or unfamiliar the participants are with each other, this communication game or training game is an interesting way of introducing one picture.
The participants are made to pair up with the person sitting with each other. They are then asked to introduce picture to each other and do some action only for their partner about Picture.
After everybody has done that, they are asked to introduce their partner to the group. There is a catch however. The participant cannot use words.
There will be some very funny moments as well as shouts of triumph as participants guess correctly the interesting facts about the members of their group.
This training game in a large group (30 or so people) or in small groups (say 10 or so people).
Let's say you are playing this game in small groups. Each group has to choose a facilitator. The task is to give each facilitator a shape, say a square, a circle, a triangle etc. The task for the facilitator is to get the group to stand in that shape.
There's a catch: the facilitator/the group cannot speak or draw. They can only gesture or touch to get the task done. They cannot push or pull people into position.
The variation: The task can also be to get the all the group to sit in that shape. Or it could be that all the group members are meant to stand on one leg, or with their eyes closed. Be as creative as you want.
Leadership Vision: The debrief of this training game: Lesson 1:Only the leader is given the task. Similarly, only the leader has the complete picture. The leader can only make sure that every person knows this picture and participates in achieving this picture, without forcing them to have it.
When no force is used, there is willing participation. When no telling is used, there is challenge in sharing it and achieving it. A crucial learning from this training game.
Lesson 2 from this training game: Leading by example. The best way to demonstrate task, willingness to achieve, dignity of labor is to lead by example. Telling will impress only those whose style it is to do when told (which is probably only 10% of your team strength).
This game can be used to demonstrate the concept of building 'shared visions'. There are five alternatives to building a shared vision - telling, selling, testing, consulting and co-creating.
You should do this type of training for students.
