Attend local chapter meetings and networking events, if there are any in your area. Talking and listening to people in a non-work setting helps strengthen and sharpen those soft skills.

As for the adaptation, we know communication is mission critical in any project. So by strengthen those communication skills, it becomes easier to use in project development.

I hope that makes sense and helps.
