Introduction

Soft skills have proved to be prerequisite in today's scenario in the context of making a successful career and lead a wealthy  life

 

Real key to success in career & life is to capitalize on all skills by making soft skills and hard skills complementary to each other.

 

In today's global environment competition is stiff with several educational qualifications being made available to greater masses. Added to this, to get an edge over competitors, people are left with no choice but to add value to their hard skills with soft skills to exhibit one's true potential. Hard skills are the academic skills + experience and level of expertise as generally described in a resume. Soft skills are essentially to be categorized as Self Development Skills, Interaction Skills Organization Skills and Communication Skills.  Personal Qualities (Innate Skills) and Soft Skills  with personal values define a person's ability to fit into a given situation. 

Soft Skills -a key to better Career Well-documented studies conducted by Harvard University and Stanford Research Institute report that technical skills and knowledge contribute to only 15 per cent of one's success while soft skills make up the remaining 85 per cent.   Persons who rank high with good soft skills, are generally the people that most employers want to hire, retain and promote. Technical and job-related skills are a must, but they are NOT sufficient when it comes to progressing up the ladder. Superior performance depends on how well an individual  handles himself / herself and others  around the work-space. Soft skills therefore complement the hard skills.

Not just for career Soft skills are useful for creating and taking advantage, of opportunities - be it a fresh job or making a long-term career or becoming a professional or businessman.  Interestingly the acquisition of soft skills also empower anyone to build flexibility into future. Most soft skills are regarded as transferable skills, e.g. communication, project management, business and team work, which are needed in nearly all aspects of life, not just for career alone. That is why  soft skills enables one to grow not just as a techie but as a person. While it's important to recognize and build on your soft skills, that doesn't mean that hard skills are to be neglected. The real key to success in career & life is to capitalize on all your skills by making soft skills and hard skills complementary to each other.

 

 

Awareness about Soft skills is essential as this is not included  in academic curricula.

 

Soft Skills & Career cycle Every person's career cycle  comprises of  following three phases:
(1) Career choice
[Career options available to both entrants & experienced
(2) Career development
[Career progress with a blend of theory & practice ]
(3) Career growth
[Career achievements with excellence & expertise ]


Identifying which career activities require soft skills is extremely important.  Getting conversant with soft skills becomes all the more relevant as our education system does not delve into personality development.   Importance of soft skills being a recent development,  few realize its significance and various facets, while others don't want to accept it due to the complexity of its approach. To learn about these skills one needs to change and any change is a challenge.  While a lot has been written and spoken on soft skills, most experts agree that when it comes to implementation there has been a lax approach due to lack of clarity as to how to demonstrate soft skills by individuals. Like any other education, one needs to first know more clearly about soft skills  and then implement  to experience its true essence and significance.

Get @head with Soft Skills workshop  is designed for those who would like to identify effective ways that one can practice and perfect  soft skills to increase overall competency in those areas as per present career phase.  This workshop provides the participants an orientation-cum-practice on how to bring to light the hidden talent and strengthen their soft skills.
