Soft skills are the “people skills” that ensure a person is capable of relating effectively with others. Soft skills usually include such personality traits as effective communication, work ethic, problem solving, teamwork, networking, motivation, time management, dispute resolution, flexibility, critical thinking and many similar traits.

Whereas hard skills are usually mechanical skills that have been learned, soft skills are somewhat harder to teach. Effective instruction will enhance latent and dormant abilities in the student. 

Interacting with people is a critical part of most jobs. The better your employees are able to interact with others, the better the results will be. Soft skills can make a crucial difference in internal communication, customer service and sales situations.

People with a broad range of soft skills are valued for their adaptability as they are able to transfer their skills from one workplace role to another with comparative ease.

Employers who have a customer service component in their business are particularly appreciative of employees who have a range of soft skills that are appropriate for customer service roles. Good customer service leaves a lasting impression. Great soft people skills can make all the difference.

I am going to realise that (after completing 13 Courses already) how much time I can save studying online. Is becoming a bit "addictive” but in a good way. I love it and every free time I am on to doing my exams or explore what other Courses is available out there to enroll later.

I am an older manager and have ran into several of the examples you explained over the years with younger employees. Reading this has helped me realize where I may have gone wrong. I will be changing the way I handle all my employees. Thank you.
