These five essential skills for every SAP professional will help you up your game and take your career to the next level.  


Stress management

Unfortunately, stress is unavoidable, but it is very manageable. Our courses on stress management will show you how to deal with stressful situations while remote working from home.

Time management

Time is the one commodity you can't buy more of when you run out. Lack of time is a significant hurdle for even the most successful professionals, no matter if they are remote employees or are working face to face.

We all have the same 24 hours in a day. Learn how to manage yours in the most efficient way possible. With your effective time management certificate, you will be a step ahead of the rest. In this course you will:


  • Finally, understand time management.
  • Pinpoint why you struggle to manage your time.

  • Develop a personalized action plan so you can start getting the most out of your time.


Theses resource and strategies will ensure you are getting the most out of every day. If you have ever said, "There just isn't enough time in a day," this is the course for you. 


Business Productivity

According to statistics, less than 60% of work time is productive. Just imagine how much more you could get done in a day if you had the strategies and skills to cut down on wasted time. That could mean hours of productivity added to your week. In this course, you will learn:


  • Techniques to make you and your staff more productive.
  • Strategies to boost performance.
  • How to get the best results from your employees
  • How to create extraordinary results from the work you are already doing.
  • How to increase profits. 


Your productivity is directly linked to your profits. That means you have total control over making more money and reaching your financial goals. 

95% of entrepreneurs and CEOs are struggling with the basic fundamentals of productivity. Getting these simple concepts down will make a significant impact on your success.


Leading Remote Teams 

Like many professionals, you may have suddenly found yourself working on a remote team. To be successful, you need the skills and strategies to lead in a brand new way. Active listening and problem solving are important tasks for remote workers.

Our course on leading remote teams will show you exactly how to facilitate collaboration from a safe distance. You will leave this course with an understanding of:


  • How to set expectations for your team.
  • How to have the hard conversations when something isn't working.
  • How to be less of a manager and more of a leader.
  • How to hold everybody on your team accountable from afar.


If you have found leading a remote team to be difficult, you are not alone. Many leaders have described this transition as one of the hardest things they have done professionally. 

One of the reasons it is so tricky is because it is so new to everyone involved. You don't have the strategies and tools required to lead a remote team, yet! 

After earning this certificate, you will have a plan and a new outlook on managing your team remotely.


Learning to Learn

When is the last time you went to school? Or learned something new?

With a concrete understanding of how learning works and how to maximize it, you can master new skills and make the most out of your professional development. 

What skills are you missing to help you achieve your goals? 

Learning is an ongoing part of life. Understand how to get the most out of everyday moments and maximize what you learn. You will leave this course with an understanding of:


  • Why learning is so important.
  • What happens when you learn something.
  • Where learning happens. 
  • The different approaches to learning.
  • What is standing in your way?  
  • How you can make learning happen.


Being a lifelong learner is the key to having a prosperous life, both personally and professionally. There are teachable moments in every day. Make sure you are getting the most out of each of them by learning all you can.

Being a successful SAP professional requires more than just the SAP skills to complete your day-to-day tasks; you also need soft skills to be a well-rounded professional.


How do you handle the stress of the job, learning new things, and being productive? Besides technical skills, these soft skill development topics are not taught in school, but they are vital to your professional success and happiness. 

One of the best things you can do to guarantee your success is to continue to learn new skills. These five critical skills will help you reach the next level of your career.
