What is NextGen”U”?”

Do your employees have a soft skills gap?

If you’ve been searching for a one-stop online solution for building career skills and truly setting the team apart as future leaders for community banking…Look no further. What enables employees to succeed at the bank has far less to do with technical knowledge and much more to do with the “soft skills”/professional poise they possess – skills such as self-awareness, delegating, team building, customer service, and perhaps most important; how to get along with different types of people.

PACB’s Next Gen“U” Career Pathing Modules are the pinnacle of Professional Soft Skills and Career Success. The NextGen“U” program has been developed to provide the skills training required to enable the bank’s team to become poised and professional representatives. This program can be the keystone that will assist them in moving into a management or leadership role, or be stronger in their current position.

What Does NextGen“U” Cover?

In this online curriculum, we will help individuals develop the 16 kinds of “soft skills – professional experiences” they MUST demonstrate to successfully manage their career. These 16 core lessons, will position team members as employees of choice and place them on a fast track for career advancement.

Participants will discover the little-known concept of “Career Pathing” and how it holds the key to enabling them to demonstrate professional competency – to be known as a “go to” employee ready to get things accomplished in the bank. NextGen“U” will teach how to:

  • Discover, hone and demonstrate professional soft skills.
  • Feel focused, energized, and confident in your banking career choice.

  • Learn inner workplace strengths – discover an inner compass so to speak – which is a must for career success.

  • Have the courage to pursue an ideal career path within the bank.

  • Gain wisdom into the science of success; secrets only the top banking professionals know and utilize.
