According to research, Soft Skills are the personality traits, behaviours, and interpersonal skills that we use to interact with other people. Soft skills are a combination of people skills, social skills, communication skills, character or personality traits, attitudes, career attributes, social intelligence and emotional intelligence quotients, among others, that enable people to navigate their environment, work well with others, perform well, and achieve their goals with complementing hard skills.
Some fundamental soft skills for the workplace include creativity, persuasion, emotional intelligence, and collaboration. We’ll look into each in more detail below. According to the Society of Human Resource Management’s (SHRM) ‘2019 State of the Workplace’ review, soft skills represent the top three missing skills amongst job applicants.
Why are Soft Skills are important?
Soft skills are vital to employers, so much so that a 2018 survey by LinkedIn found that 57% of senior leaders thought that soft skills were even more important than hard skills. In part, this is due to their versatility.
