Are your ‘Soft Skills’ Ready for the Future?

“Stay true to yourself, yet always be open to learn”- P. Sweet

So, how do I prepare for jobs of the future?

The Truth

What Are Soft Skills?

The problem with soft skills is that the definition is not clearly stated somewhere nor is it agreed upon by employers or hiring managers.

  • Some define soft skills as people skills such as communication and interpersonal skills.
  • Others believe that they are professional skills such as leadership or mentorship.
  • And others call them transferable skills highlighting the importance of teamwork and adaptability.
  • You may also find them defined as self-management skills, such as developing a growth mindset or building resilience.

Regardless of the label, everyone agrees that soft skills are the skills that you need to succeed in any career now and in the future. Whether you are a chef, a mechanical engineer, or a family physician, soft skills will help you navigate your day to day challenges.
