Self-Management Skills are soft skills that make employees more valuable and effective at work. Using self-management skills, employees will improve their performance and increase the sense that they are making effective team contributions. Time management, managing social boundaries and managing stress are all important elements in job success.

Students are taught how to use professional time management tools, such as the “to do” list process, meeting deadlines, and informing colleagues of problems in a timely manner. The lessons address common challenges to time management, some created by learners and some generated by external requests.

Managing social boundaries helps an employee protect their professional image, and maintain a positive work atmosphere among coworkers. Knowing what is inappropriate to discuss at work or making poor decisions about social media postings and other website blogs and posts can save a career.

Stress management includes techniques that can be used on the job to increase work life balance, and techniques for relaxation that can be implemented outside of the workplace.
