What are soft skills?
Soft skills are often misunderstood and labelled as a bit of a waste of time, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Soft skills refer to the skills that help you work, including productivity skills such as time management, interpersonal skills for navigating the office, problem-solving and mentoring.
These skills are valuable for any person at any level, no matter what role they work in or how technically skilled they are.
