Soft Skills Course
A ‘soft skill’ is an individual quality that assists you in getting on with other people and empowers you to succeed in the working environment. The opposite of soft skills is ‘hard skills’. Hard skills are the specialist skills which you need to carry out your job, such as computer skills, while ‘soft skills’ are more interpersonal, but equally as important. Some examples of soft skills might include your character, outlook, adaptability, personal habits and inspiration.
Regardless of the job you are in, if you deal with other human beings then soft skills are essential. In fact, most businesses are actively looking to hire people that are a ‘good fit’ for their existing teams, and so many are assessing soft skills during interviews.
