Soft skills are personality traits and people skills that characterize a person’s relationship with other people. Soft skills have more to do with who the people are and not what they know.

Same way, if you are a student and you are very good in geometry and computers that are your hard skills and if you share an amazing bond with your teacher than that’s your soft skills.

KNOW MY STORY

When I was in school I always thought that people who have a big group of friends are actually special, they have something god gifted, which is why its easier for them to get into a group of people and be friends with them in few minutes. While everyone was enjoying in big groups I had only one or two people sitting with me wondering what is special in them. You

know what? There is actually something very special about these people… PEOPLE SKILLS…yes yes this is the specialty, which I always lacked ☹️.

Oh god how boring my friendship phase was. But I was somehow okhay with the fact that I have less friends, BUTTT when I started my college I realized that less friends is at least acceptable but if I don’t learn this special skill, it will be very difficult in my career life also, being a media student I rely on networking for all the work and without people skills surviving was very difficult. That’s why I am here with an amazing news for you. People skills (soft skills ) can be learnt. YESSSSS my darling readers you can learn this skill and get a desirable personality. As I mentioned YOUR PERSONALITY MATTERS its really important in every phase of life be it your friendship, your career, your entire life, your success your failure, every damn thing depends on your personality.

How you walk, how you talk, what your first and last impression is, how you resolve conflicts, how you motivate, how you lead everything counts in soft skills. I repeat its very important. Your selection and rejection will be decided on the Basis of above mentioned behavioural skills.

I cant tell you enough of this fact, that PERSONALITY MATTERS.

IMPORTANCE OF SOFT SKILLS

In the above paragraphs I nearly took a loud speaker and shouted like a crazy that how much does a solid personality matter. But not to forget personality is not a mythological term which you going to chant all day long, and suddenly one day miraculously you will get a solid personality. Nooo trust me this is not gonna happen.

Your personality is nothing but set of soft skills. No magic can make you desirable except the magic of your skills. Nothing can be more true than your skills, developed skills.

Now lets understand why and how soft skills will help you -:

  1. A doctor is required to have an extensive repertoire of hard skills, especially the ability to diagnose and prescribe treatments for an array of ailments. But a doctor who lacks soft skills of emotional intelligence, trustworthiness and approachability is not likely to be very highly regarded by their patients.
  • A salesperson who may have an unrivalled and exhaustive knowledge of their market, will find it difficult to close a deal if they lack interpersonal skills and negotiation skills.
  • A customer services professional with organizational skills will only do well if they have soft skills such as listening skills, they will perform good if they are able to interact professionally with customers and have empathy.

Soft skills are not just important when facing external customers and clients. They are equally important when it comes to interacting with colleagues.

A productive and healthy work environment depends on soft skills. The workplace is an interpersonal space, where relationships must be built and flourished perspectives must be exchanged and occasionally conflicts must be resolved.

Motivational skills we all should learn, to help our team, colleagues, family member, life partner. If you are in business you can get all your team on work effectively. This will be helpful for your career and life.
