The financial value of soft skills

daffodil

I read an article this week about how employers subconsciously value soft skills during the interview process.   With two equally qualified and experienced candidates they will almost always pick the one with charm and confidence; the ability to ‘fit in’.     With that in mind, the so called soft skills have a clear monetary value and should perhaps be classed as hard (cash) skills.

The concept applies to existing employees and those of us who work for ourselves.  Without the confidence and social ability to get along with others, life is harder.

Shameless plug now for my upcoming course:- https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/true-connections-tickets-54563189970     This is an open course available to anyone.  Feel free to get in touch for a course tailored to your team that can be run in-house.
