What are soft skills?
'Soft skills,' 'human skills,' 'generic labor market skills,' '21st century skills'... There are plenty of terms to denote the abilities we use to complement our technical knowledge. However, their significance is anything but 'soft.'
These skills enable us to engage with others and maneuver through social and professional scenarios. They possess a broader applicability compared to their "hard" or "technical" counterparts and demonstrate their worth across various contexts. That’s why they’re a crucial aspect of an individual's success and effectiveness.
