About CMI's
Training Programs

Research conducted by Harvard University, Stanford Research Centre, and the Carnegie Foundation concluded that
85% of job success comes from possessing well developed non-cognitive skills and people skills.

Non-cognitive Skills and Competitiveness

Non-cognitive skills directly affect all the traditional 'hard skills' that we learn and amplify their effectiveness at work and in life.

Most of us need formal non-cognitive skills training because we have never been systematically exposed to them, unlike our global competitors.

Without training in these non-cognitive skills, we are left to chance - to learn from our experiences - an extremely slow and incomplete process.

Which Non-cognitive Skills?

There are lots of non-cognitive or 'soft' skills, so which ones are important? CMI's research, based on a nationwide survey of thousands of CEOs, academia and thought leaders in India, has shown conclusively that certain specific non-cognitive skills have an outsize impact on competitiveness and professional effectiveness. CMI's highly rated FLY programs are designed to offer training in specifically these, not generic, non-cognitive skills:

  • Conscientiousness

  • Perseverance

  • Taking Initiative

  • Innovativeness

  • Problem Solving
