Essential Soft Skills

Soft skills get little respect, but will make or break your career. ~ Peggy Klaus

What, exactly, are Soft Skills?

Soft skills are a combination of people skills, social skills, communication skills, character traits, and attitudes that enable people to navigate their environment, work well with others, perform well, and achieve their goals harmoniously.

No matter what organization one works for, applying soft skills is essential, but is often overlooked as a skill-set that needs to be nurtured. The solution to an organization’s challenges often begins with a shift in corporate culture, its stated values, and the communication of values to create a foundation on which to build important skills, such as soft skills.
