How to improve Soft Skills Best Practices PPT

Soft skills are a mix of interpersonal skills, common sense, personality, emotional intelligence and attitude towards people and are very important for success in the workplace as they impact how we perform and interact with our cooworkers. Soft skills either can't be acquired or are notoriously hard to acquire through traditional education, although they're transferable. What does it mean?

Soft skills are abilities that relate to how you work and how you interact with other people. Popular soft skills include communication, teamwork and other interpersonal skills. Employers look for soft skills in candidates because these skills are hard to teach and are important for long-term success. Soft skills are different from hard skills, which are technical and job-specific.

Other names for soft skills: personal skills, interpersonal skills, non-technical skills, essential skills, transferable skills

Soft skills are personality traits and behaviors that will help candidates get hired and succeed in their work. Unlike technical skills or "hard" skills, soft skills are interpersonal and behavioral skills that help you work well with other people and develop your career.

In short, transferable skills aren't job-specific. You have them regardless of the job you're doing.
For example, if you're a great communicator you'll remain one whatever you do.
Soft skills in the workplace are the driving force behind any company's success.

It's thanks to soft skills that team members are able to effectively collaborate with each other and achieve synergistic results. You can teach people to use new software, or perform certain job-specific tasks rather quickly. But you can't teach them common sense. Or change their character.

Why are soft skills important?
Soft skills play an important role in resume writing, interviewing, job performance and finding success in communicating with people at work and in other areas of your life. For example, as you look for jobs, you may find that many employers list specific soft skills on their job posts in the "required" or "desired" sections.

For example, a job posting for a human resources associate may list "attention to detail" as a desired trait, while a job for a marketing specialist could list "leadership" and "great communication skills" as required traits.

Soft skills are often transferable across careers and industries. As a result, you may find that you possess many of the required traits even if you don't match the exact profile in a job description. As you search for jobs, pay special attention to posts calling for candidates with soft skills or traits you possess.

Even if the job title isn't a great fit, you may find that the description makes sense for you. As you progress through the job search process, keep your resume updated to reflect soft skills most relevant to the jobs you're applying for.

While having your soft skills on your resume can catch the attention of an employer, the interview is where you'll be able to showcase that you actually possess these skills. While you can display some skills like good communication, you may consider weaving others into your answers to interview questions.

For example, you might talk about your problem-solving skills when answering a question like, "Tell me about a time you overcame an obstacle." If the employer prompts you to provide references, think of those that can speak to examples that verify your soft skills and other strengths.
