What are 'Soft Skills' ?

Soft skills are the 'human skills' that allow people to

Be Open to New Ideas

Respond Appropriately rather than React

Communicate Effectively

Resiliently Grow through Adversity

Successfully Manage Conflict

Solve Problems Effectively

and to 

Make Wise Decisions

 


Why are Soft Skills so Important 

 

Soft skills are often the difference between

desired and unintended outcomes.

 

They help people adapt to changing circumstances, communicate effectively during times of uncertainty or change from the norm, and to collaborate with others to find effective solutions when these are not immediately obvious.

Those with good soft skills tend to have strong situational awareness and the emotional intelligence and confidence to navigate difficult working environments , whilst still producing positive results.

Soft Skills are especially beneficial in constructively navigating the rapidly changing environment we now have to deal with on a daily basis.
