Cognitive and Soft Skills are Important! But what's the difference between them?


Cognitive skills and soft skills are different types of brain skills. Cognitive skills training is based on research on the neuroplasticity of the brain. Cognitive skills training helps with the underlying brain functions involved in reading, writing, paying attention to details, critical thinking, planning, decision-making, and so much more! 

On the other hand, soft skills are brain skills that can be developed, but are also based in who you are as a person. Perhaps you can speak to individual people, but standing in front of even a small group makes you freeze. Or perhaps your reviews show that you need to manage your time better. You might even need to work in a group cooperatively, but the idea brings back memories of group assignments in school. 

Brighter Path can help with both the cognitive and soft skills you want to improve. We provide technology-based solutions to cognitive skills and some soft skills. Our membership subscription is so affordable, you want to contact us today!
